Have any of you voluntarily gone from CD to Senior CW or CW, and how did you message that with recruiters, LinkedIn, and so on? My last job broke me mentally and physically. I was grossly underpaid, so it won't be much of a lifestyle switch and I don't think I was a terribly good manager, anyway.

Has anyone ever taken a short leave of absence from their big firm job? I’m not sure I can make it much longer in big law at this point.

My partner and I are in strong stable careers with good incomes now. We have been dating for 4.5years-ish. The end game was to get engaged and married. We bought an engagement ring a few months back. I was assuming he would propose by May end but that hasn’t happened. I don’t want to force his hand but I’m also getting impatient & not quite understanding the delay. I just don’t want to waste any more time if its not happening.
Recently found out a male attorney I manage makes significantly more than me. He has been licensed one less month than I. Any advice for how to approach my mgr? Small firm, so HR is not an option.
Any good woman’s tailors in NYC?
I’ve really struggled recently with motivation. While I’ve been working out weekly (because of my trainer), I really struggle with getting myself to start work when I’m supposed to along with other things I want to do (I.e. read for pleasure). I enjoy my job & love the people I work with, but I always find myself scrolling on my phone during & after work. Then at night, I tell myself I’m gonna have a productive day tomorrow but end up repeating the same things. Idk how to turn this around.
Runners: I have some muscle from weight lifting. I’m about to start training for a marathon. Assuming I keep up food intake weights. Will I lose all my muscle? Everyone keeps saying I will be a green bean after
I am an insurance defense attorney. As part of the defense we go out to a lot of scene inspections that are dirty/messy (ie fire loss). The first time I wore business attire but soon realized that this was not practical. Therefore I’ve been wearing jeans to many of these scene inspections. However recently I’ve had a few of the (older male) attorneys make comments about not being professional. Has anyone else experienced this? What do you wear to a scene inspection?
I want to change my last name to my fiancé’s name when we get married, but keep my maiden name for work- how do you handle this? I’m concerned with bar registration & signing pleadings etc.
Weird question. Got an offer months ago for a job abroad (not in my country of choice) and turned it down due to the low salary and not being in Europe. I started a new role in NYCsince I got that job offer in a large firm (from a small firm in a small town), started 3 months ago, and I absolutely hate it. Not sure whether I should try this small firm abroad for a change in pace. The new firm swears, “if you ever work past 5 pm here, there’s something seriously wrong. We don’t believe in that.”
Low billable, low pressure work in patent lit, tech trans or privacy law? Slowly realizing that as my boys get older, the money isn’t worth what I’m missing out on. Currently a patent litigation associate with lots of hearing, depo and trial experience (I’ve appeared on my own at hearings/depos) at a well respected firm. Have my CIPM and CIPP/US /E and /C. Just feeling the burn out; 2000 hours of billables a year just isn’t sustainable for me long term. Money isn’t a huge issue.
I have a friend/former co-worker who just informed me she’s being sexually harassed by a partner at a firm I used to work at. She is apparently at least the 4th woman to fall prey to this POS and the firm continues to cover for him while the women ultimately leave with nothing more than a note in the HR file. My heart breaks for her and I am livid. Although I have endured sexism as a woman (as i imagine most here have also) ...continued in comments...
Ladies, talk to me about taxes (so not sexy). If my comp is midlevel biglaw and I marry someone who is also in a high income bracket, word on the street is that we are royally f*cked in taxes more so than average re marriage penalty. Is this true and if so how do you manage(ish)? Does filing separately help? Has anyone come across this issue?

My law firm gives me a report that breaks down the amount of billable hours collected compared to how much I’ve been paid on a monthly basis. Does anyone else’s firm do this? At what point do you think it’s acceptable to ask for a bonus/raise?
I’m a young mid-level associate at a big firm and I brought in my first client recently. I discovered that one of the partners in a different office is trying to open a client file with a different entity of the same client through a different contact with the client. My relationship with the client is through the CEO, so I’m not so much worried about losing my relationship with my client I’m more wondering (1) is this common in big firms and (2) how do I handle this within my firm?
I’m a recent grad and I just accepted my first attorney job. Is it lame to post about it on instagram? 🙃
