Any advice on exploring career options within law? Current corporate biglaw, I enjoy my firm but hate the 24/7 fire drills that come with firm life. I don’t know if in-house would get boring over time. No idea what to work towards anymore.
I’m almost a second year attorney in family law. I have made brief appearances in hearings, but nothing really major. I am an outgoing person and have no problem working out issues and speaking to the partner and senior associates. However, I have so much anxiety about court, particularly long arguments. I am extremely nervous and feel like I’m going to freeze. I do believe I’m capable, but I feel like I have a long way to go. Any tips? I’m doing great in all other areas more or less.
Do partners realize that by engaging and building a relationship with their associates allows for greater ease when dealing with workflow issues? I’m at a small boutique. I am new. I also try and learn things on my own and follow up with my partner when I need guidance. Most people I read here have extreme anxiety and depression revolving around communications with their partners.
Why don’t law firms offer reviews of your bosses. It shouldn’t be a one way street where there’s appraisals of employees. I feel that would hold them accountable to certain standards.
The requirement to send a daily timesheet report to thpartners in my practice group has forced me to actually sit down and get stuff done. Good for business! (Spent the first days mostly freaking out)
They say the reward for good work is more work. Well, it’s beginning to feel like a punishment because I’m drowning. But I have no idea how to turn down assignments, and I definitely feel like I need to because the quality of my work is declining as I become spread thin. Thoughts on how I can go about managing my workload without ruffling feathers?

Had a stressful day. Made a rookie mistake and just feeling worn down. Billed 8 hours and still going. What do you on the bad days?
If you told me at the beginning of the year that I’d spend a large portion of the year working and even attending hearings without pants on, I would have laughed at the absurdity. But here we are...
Thoughts on getting second professional degree while at big law? Want one because I’m a lifelong learned, but it would send the wrong message.
Our intern keeps complaining about the bar being online. I’m not unsympathetic to the situation but she’s getting an extra three months to study and it’s half it’s normal length. We all had to take it and it was stressful for all of us. I’m very over discussing it with her but she brings it up every day.
When a post says “more below” or “continued” do you generally wait for OP to comment on their own post, or are you such a know it all that you try to beat them to the punch and answer prematurely?

What % of job interviews have involved you being asked whether you have kids or some leading question about ability to manage work and home? For me, it’s been about 80%. It’s 2018 not 1968.

What’s the longest you’ve coasted at a job before getting fired/leaving to another job? I’ve been in the process of looking for another job for the last couple of weeks, but have been demotivated/checked out for the last 4-5 months at my current job because of the team I’m on (no end in sight).

Anyone else extremely concerned with the “takeover” happening in DFW? You scroll realtor anywhere in DFW and almost every single thing is pending. A house down the street for us went for sale last weekend and had over 200 people show for a two hour open house and had 34 offers in one day. When people actually get back to work the traffic is going to be like LA and I’m curious where all of these people are going to work when their CA jobs tell them they need to be back in the office.

I’m looking for advice from a professional that’s familiar with the sale of startup. I’ve been working on my baby (Plankstation) since 2014. I’ve taken it as far as I can on my own, but due to unforeseen circumstances am not able to take it any further...great opportunity for the right person. So far on my own, I’ve had the product developed, secured a manufacturer, utility patent, market research and all social media handles. How do I go about offering it up for sale?
Industry. That life we dream of living when we watch our clients leave every day at 4pm but can never quite stomach the thought of waking up to every morning. #grassisalwaysgreener
