Sure! But it seems like everybody on here is New York or Texas…




Shoot, I completely forgot about an event I have on Wednesday, but I’m across the river in NJ so I’d be up for it next time!

City? I’m in!

Hi Everyone,

I just need some advice.
My father passed away a few months back and I am yet to obtain the legal heir certificate. Given the ITR deadline is near, should I just file his ITR from his account or is there any other option?

Thanks in advance


Thanksgiving is upon us. Send help.

My step in laws are TERRIBLE. Not directly to me but family dynamic is stressful. They parent their youngest kid with pills and ignoring him, so that he does inappropriate things around me with zero correction (walking in on me, insulting me). They are all half siblings (4 boys 30-11) so they all don’t care including my partner. FIL also verbally abuses MIL in front of us. Yet they all want to please him constantly. It’s just bad.

Food was good though.


I feel like my mother prefers another family member (not her child, but same age and gender as me) more than she does me. I was very excited for a recent milestone event in my life and so was the other family member, whose event my mom is definitely more interested in. Idk why I even bother, maybe I should just come to terms with the fact that my mom doesn't care as much and move on with my life without needing her validation

Need advice. Have some credit card debt that I’ve been working to pay off. Have made progress but want to lower it quickly. We have dual income, with a house (~$300k in equity), 1 kid and 1 on the way. I’ve looked into debt consolidation via HELOC but also have ~$80k in vested equity in my company that I haven’t touched. Get equity refreshes every year. Would it be smarter to cash out $15k-$20k of that to pay debt vs. a HELOC at ~5% given that will still require mthly payments


I lived in tampa in my early 20s and am now in my late 30s and looking to move back. One of the reason I left is because I felt I had too much energy for the city for a single young professional, but now husband is from there and we have a kid but we are both social people. Do you guys find it easy to meet interesting people and has the city gotten any more fun?

Looking for advice about what types of creative (but still corporate) non-legal roles would be easiest to pivot into. I’m an entertainment/IP/privacy lawyer but have only been practicing for 1.5 years. I already know the law isn’t for me though and am trying to brainstorm what other career paths may be a good fit. Main complication is that I need work visa sponsorship. My first thought was marketing/advertising but other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I think my analyst is going to quit. I thought they were crushing the game: great work ethic and product, good attitude and sense of (slightly cynical) humor, one of our best analysts. Turns out all smiles and good attitude wasn’t working for them. Feel terrible about it. One for the analyst, two for our team, three that I had any part in it.
Part of me says suck it up. The other - prevailing - part is super concerned. So, check in on your juniors at a real level. The kids are not okay.
