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.

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?

Hey guys I have an offer for corporate strategy role from a company backed by one of the largest conglomerate of India. They are offering almost 50% increment with an opportunity to work at CEO office. Although company is stable and many investments are flowing in but financially (individual) net income is negative from quite sometime now. The idea of working in CEO office is tempting but scary due to current scenario. How should I weigh/ assess offer in current scenario.
