Took my first deposition today and it went great! I attribute some of that to the tips I got from here - I searched the group and saw some really good suggestions and things to keep in mind, and it really helped me!

I have over 6 years of experience and am well-versed in family code and case law.

I have a virtual interview tomorrow through Teams - 1) what is appropriate to wear for a video interview?

Unrelated to law, but need some advice on how to help a friend. One of my best friend’s dad is in the hospital in really bad shape. She’s home with her mom and siblings. I want to send food or do something for them, especially since they just found out they may have been exposed to covid when visiting their dad at the hospital (not by their dad), and they have to quarantine for 2 weeks. If I were closer I’d make food and drop it off, but they’re 200 miles away. Any ideas?

Hi! I received an offer as a financial analyst for $86k base in Seattle (with stock options and bonus, annual income will be ~$110k). However, right now I’m making $115k base comp in SF as senior tax associate. I think H1B doesn’t care about total comp package, just base salary - will it be difficult to transfer the h1b to a lower salary position? Thank you!
