Any insight on life as a Fed Public Defender? That has always been my goal. I'm currently a 3rd year associate at a private defense firm doing litigation. I did firm life first to pay off my student loans and I am planning to transition soon. I'm looking to move to Charlotte specifically, but any insight at all will help.

Any Recruiters out there looking for a HR Manager who actually has experience using HRIS and loves the technology side? I don't have a background in it, but I've had 8 years experience in HR and Payroll processing and know the HRIS we use better than 90% of the staff I call for support. I usually tell them how to do their job. It's just something I'm really passionate about. I think it's important to understand user perspective.

I'm seriously tired of all the injustice done by cops. I've now caught several in blatant lies... On video or on record.

Maybe this is a mild vent but it gets really hard to defend cases where constitutional violations are just being overlooked especially in an area that favors cops! Ugh🥺


I’m a new associate working for a well-known defense attorney in my state. On one hand, I’m thankful for the opportunity to learn from one of the best, but he also excoriates and belittles me for my mistakes. Any advice on how much it tolerable? I am here to learn and advance my career but he can be pretty nasty. (My mistakes are no worse than you’d expect a 1st year associate to make, in case you’re all wondering if I’m a major screw-up who deserves it) I leave work feeling a foot tall.

Any advice for becoming a public defender in Southern California

Judge-shopping is frowned upon in most jurisdictions, if not actually prohibited in the local Bar rules or in legislation. So, how do you handle providing your client with necessary advice when you walk into court and see that Judge Hardass is presiding? A colleague of mine is currently facing a Bar discipline panel over warning off his client. What should you do in that situation?

Client gets distracted driving ticket. Pros adds no ops charge but it’s not on the ticket. Issue or not? He hasn’t received a new ticket.
