Perhaps an unpopular opinion: the mental impacts of our reaction as a people to COVID-19 (e.g. in and out of lockdown) are starting to outweigh the physical impacts of COVID-19 to our society/people.

I am 38 and recently relocated to Charlotte, NC. Been practicing for 2 years with my own firm in CA and was hoping to join a firm in the estate planning/real estate space to get more familiar with the marketplace out here. Seems like firms in that space want someone with much more experience (3-5 years) or are not hiring. When would it be time to throw in the towel and start my own practice out here? Was hoping to join a firm where I could make a community out here but prospects look bleak.

Is there a statute in New York permitting award of attorneys fees to successful party in breach of contract case?
Anyone have a company or person who created their firm's conflict check procedures? Is that even a thing? I'm just feeling overwhelmed with figuring out how I'm going to keep track of it, especially as I grow. With so many things to keep track of as a solo I feel like this is one I would rather delegate.
Does anyone use the monthly serv list subscriptions that usually run a few hundred dollars per category to get new cases or clients. I get contacted everyday and we did one once which turned out to be a nightmare on PI cases. I am interested in estate planning and probate or business law. Thoughts? Happy new year!
What “tech stack” does everyone use? I keep booking demos but would love to know what people use. The categories I’m looking for are billing, document management and document automation.

I am a first-year attorney in a 3 person firm (I’m the third). My bosses put me on the PD appointment list to ensure I have work but I absolutely dread court appearances and litigation. I wanted to be a transactional Atty. Over the last 2 weeks I’ve been living in a constant state of panic and (embarrassingly) cry in the bathroom at least once a day due to stress. I’m getting a therapist but am seriously considering leaving the firm with no backup. What do I do?
Hi. I’m in need of advice and encouragement. I’m currently working as a public defender(2nd year) but I would love to pursue a solo private practice. I would like to leave the public defender because I am ready to make more money and I am no longer feeling the fulfillment I once felt. I have a family and work-life balance is a priority. What is a good way to gain experience in other areas of law as a solo practitioner? What areas of law are best for maintaining a work-life balance?
I have a general practice but I want to develop a niche and focus on that. Has anyone made that transition? Any advice on identifying, training, and shifting to that?
I just wanted to offer some positivity and encouragement in this last quarter! May the blessings continue pouring in while reducing the stress. As a newer partner, still in the earlier stages of my career, I am grateful for the insight this bowl provides.
I’m close to making partner, but need to add about $150k ish to my book to really push me over the hump. I have a strong book already but feel for some reason my momentum has stalled over the last 6 months or so. What do you all do that you find really helps build your book, in addition to networking?
I’m an associate attorney at a mid-size family law practice. (5 attorneys, 3 support staff). I’ve been here for 3 years and just asked for a raise to $130k from $90k. My annual billable target is 1400. However, since I’ve been here I’ve barely broken 1000 despite working my ass off. I bill out at $375. They told me no more raises unless I start taking my own cases. Now they just hired a new associate and are paying him $170k and he takes his own cases. Am I being unreasonable asking for $130k?
I tested the waters (currently at $105 base)and got offered a position making $125k base +10% comm up to $500k in atty fees that goes to 15% after half a mil in fees. The work is in first party plaintiff (same field im in now). My boss is desperate. He offered to up my base from 105 to 150 and up my EOY bonus to 10k. 200k base salary guaranteed next year in writing if I stay & named partner. some equity the year after.l if I stay. He is a lunatic though. I’m in south Florida. Thoughts on moving?
First gen lawyer here (not that that really impacts the question/post) but I see all these posts about entering billable time and appropriate descriptions (mostly in big law or other practice areas (Domestic Relations litigation here)). How often do people here run into clients requesting meetings to have their bills explained or refusing to pay certain work? What’s your practice area, and who in your firm is tasked with these explanation meetings?
