Any insight as to Michael Best or Spencer Fane? A little concerned that Michael Best’s Pres is Reince Priebus but they have a flexible WFH policy 😅😅

My mentee (class of 2021) graduated from a good school with decent grades but somehow ended up in a nonexistent CA market doing insurance coverage.

If anyone has an leads or would be willing to meet with him please reach out.

Nearly a year in on a shrinking SDR team.
I am finding it increasingly unlikely that I'll be able to get off this team over to MM AE until the empty seats have been filled and brought up to speed.
At this point a move sideways into an AE role elsewhere is looking better and better.

Should I be patient or just take the leap?
Any tips on best positioning that in an interview?

Hey fellow attorneys! I am a second year attorney who has recently accepted a job within a firm that I am absolutely ecstatic about. However, my first year of practice was highly supervised and I was given no cases of my own (Always worked the cases with major supervision and micromanaging by partners in my previous firm). I am worried about being able to do solo cases individually and whether I know enough to be in charge of cases. Anyone else experienced this? Or have any advice? Thank you!
