I got distracted yesterday drafting an appellate brief and completely forgot to show up for a warm body hearing involving a coverage MSJ that has nothing to do with my client. Regardless, I am mortified and of course apologized to the partner. Do I need to address anything with the court or OC or is this nbd?

Have an offer in hand for an AmLaw100 lockstep. Corporate / M&A mid level associate. Didn’t use a recruiter (attorney referral from inside firm). Mostly satisfied with the offer. Procedurally how should I go about negotiating things like signing bonus, full bonus vs pro rated bonus / Covid bonus eligibility? Obviously this would normally be done recruiter to recruiter. Do I contact the internal recruiter or one of the head partners I interviewed with? Email vs call?

I started interviewing with a company back in January but they were taking while to make a decision so I put them out of my mind. Fast forward to last week and I found out that I’m newly pregnant. Now, I was offered the job. I don’t know what to do! I hate my current job and this new company seems like a better fit. Do I tell them before I accept the role? I know it’s very early and anything could happen with this pregnancy but I’m torn. Advice would be so helpful!

Been a consultant for almost a decade now with a tech background, but have been considering a switch to UI/UX. I've been doing lots of training/ reading and dabbling on some projects. How realistic is this? I don't have a lot of proper experience and am worried that I missed my chance (late 30s here).
