How do you litigators do it? I’m a transactional attorney caught in the middle of a client’s litigation issues and this sucks. Parties are so headstrong, confrontational but at the same time won’t even speak to each other. Do you always expect to get paid? Some of these litigators’ bills seem extreme for no actual trial occurring. I’ve never been so pleased with my chosen path.

I need to buy new clothes post-covid anyways. I’m thinking some casual, but quality, plain black dresses that I can wear a sweater, jacket, blazer (when necessary), shirt, etc. over. Could dress up or down with shoes. Thoughts?
