I need advice on handling the attorney I work for.
As some background, my attorney needs near constant reminders on everything, and every pleading I give them to approve & sign, I have to follow up on it 3-4 times before they even look at it. Then I hound them for a signature.

But when these situations happen, sometimes they’ll randomly remember “oh we have a deadline. Why isn’t that done yet” and they’ll get frustrated with me for it not being done, but I had given it to them prior.
