New attorney here - Passed the Feb bar exam and started working at a small firm in March. Boss is great, staff is great, I just feel like I know literally nothing about how to actually practice law. The paralegals know more than I do. I can barely write a complaint, and I don’t even know how to file. Any advice on gaining confidence when just starting out? P.S. My boss (the only other attorney) isn’t available to answer my dumb questions 8-5. I can only catch him after hours.

Hi all, my boss (sole practitioner) got a PPP loan in May, and he started supplementing my paycheck to be 75% of what I was making on average before. I am an hourly associate and only get paid for what I bill. The first several months of my employment, I did not bill a lot because I was ramping up. Now, since quarantine began, I am making LESS even with what he’s supplementing than what I would get if I just filed for unemployment.

Best way to bring up the sloppy work of paralegal w/partner? He doesn’t mind bc he isn’t super type A but I’m constantly spending hours cleaning up things she did wrong or can’t master (simple doc formatting..). She doesn’t see the urgency or importance of clean/mistake-free work & partner won’t reinforce anything I request/recommend.

How do you feel about emails from women addressed to women as “Hi ladies,” if you have a friendly (although strictly professional) relationship? Do you feel it is acceptable to professionally email a group of women at a client this way? Asking because I want to! Very sweet group of women that I like being friendly with during meetings. I’d like to think I make them feel young when we interact, but am not sure whether it may come off as TOO casual if I address them this way

Hi everyone, my dad has been looking for an AP Royal Oak chronograph for a few years - ideally in blue but would also be happy with black. I’m in NY and the AP sales person told me it was not likely to be available this year (in any colour, let alone blue) - does anyone have suggestions on how to find this watch? Would love to surprise him with it (he’s paying, just to be clear - but is in Australia and there’s no AP store there). Thanks 🙏

Anybody that got married to an American (US Citizen) lately? What’s the timeline of the documentation? Does anybody have any tips to make my life easier? We’re getting married in two weeks, and we have been together for a really long time so we should have no problem with marriage fraud. I’m currently employed and I’m on an h-1b that won’t expire until 2022
