Anyone worked for Morgan & Morgan and have an insight? I know like any firm like this there will be long hours which I don’t mind coming from the defense side but I like the idea of receiving a mo…

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?
Resume question. Do you include contract work on your resume or not if you have substantial reputable firm experience since (e.g. 5-6 years with the same firm)? Is having it in there better than the gap (~7 month gap) after law school? Just for full details, I was set to work at a small practice (~2 senior attorneys) and they rescinded due to losing a major client while I was studying for the bar in mid July) Thanks in advance for any advice!
Anyone have people who work for clients who are either young or inexperienced and treat you as outside counsel like you’re their bitch...except 90% of the time they have no clue what they are doing?
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Do other associates here have an interior office? Dreading going back in because lack of natural light is a serious mood killer….
How much nonbillable time is too much? I’m a second associate at a midsized firm and I have 30-50 non billable hours each month. An associate at another firm told me this was really high. Thoughts?
I’m interested to know opinions on which service is better for in-house counsel, Practical Law or Lexis Nexis? Or another option that I might be unaware of? Im an in-house generalist at a medium sized, service based company and handle a range of matters including general business, contracts, employment/international employment, IP, privacy, and technology. I want to be able to access templates, practice guides, and checklists.
So. Many. Recruiters. Calling all the associates at my midsized firm. I wish there was a tactful way to tell our firm this — they need to step up salaries generally because this is gonna be like shooting fish in a barrel for the big firms.
Any insight on Hanson Bridgett’s SF office?
Just accepted an offer that’ll increase my salary by over 60%!! (and allows me to expand my practice area and work with what seems like great people) That is all.
What are some best practices for handling an employee with dare I say, too much initiative? They tend to steamroll others and processes because they are so fast at their job and rather than taking a breather when done, start digging around for new projects outside of their scope. We value them but want to ensure others are given opportunity to thrive too.

Got a big raise in salary from getting promoted to senior but still below industry average pay? 🙄
Just opened a HSA with my HDHP, but plan to have kids in 3ish years and will likely move off the HDHP at that time. Should i still max out my HSA contributions if i will be eniliglble for a HSA 3 years from now? Seems like it would be a relatively small pot of money vs. Adding that amoumt to my 401k
When are your companies making you go back into the office (if they are)? I’m trying to stay 100% WFH for the rest of 2021.
Have you ever almost lost a client?
I just won a Lion. Also have a One Show Pencil. Not gonna lie, it’s nice to be recognized but I’m not overly excited. Does it really make a big difference? Are recruiters just gonna suddenly start showing interest and reaching out? Will my agency give me a raise?
Generally does MBB referrals need to come from the same office you're applying to? I guess it would be a stronger case
$2500 RT first class to Northern Europe on Delta - is this a good deal? Thinking of splurging as post pandemic gift to myself but curious to others thoughts - i think price is 30-50% lower than pre-pandemic given reduced biz travel from a tier 2 city but curious what others think
Any unused delta drink vouchers?
