Any NYC big law firms heard anything about target hours being prorated this year? My firm has 2K target that was cut to 1800 in 2020 for Covid. So far no word on whether it will happen again, given that we’re still remote and challenges WFH (especially for associate parents) are still the same.

Just had my mammogram and a follow up consult with a breast surgeon, and he told me the fertility treatments and the hormones have done a number on my breasts.

My friend is a 4th year public defender in NYC. T14 grad and easily one of the smartest, most capable attorneys and professionals I know. She finally hit the limit and is looking to pivot out of PD work when she moves to Oregon next year. Does anyone have any experience seeing this PD - private practice transition happen? She’s open to basically anything in the litigation space so long as it pays better. I assume biglaw is off the table given the market, but know she would thrive. Any advice?

To more senior litigators/trial attorneys, does litigation get easier?

I’m a third year, and am told I do a good job. Backing that up, I’ve gotten a lot of “good” opportunities early on to take/defend depositions, be the client contact, handle drafting dispositive motions + hearings (even hearings completely on my own for the motion/response I drafted).

People in my office will say these things are fun, that I must be enjoying it. But I don’t enjoy it and I want to puke most of the time.

Kind of rocked at the news of Cheslie Kryst’s passing from an apparent suicide. Although we don’t know what exactly was the last straw for her, I can’t help but wonder if the demands of her lawyer job (on top of her many others of course) were too much. Sometimes I feel so disillusioned by this profession and it’s all consuming. I hope you all are taking care of yourselves and realizing you are much more to this world than what you do for a living. Sending mad love.
