Want to get the perspective of younger attorneys. We’re a 4-attorney firm (2 partners, one associate, one OC) looking to add a 5th attorney.

1 in every 1000 NYC resident has died from COVID-19. If that doesn’t show how badly we fucked this up, I don’t know what will. And before people go all “population density”, look at Seoul.
