For people in the DC area and live in Loudoun County. Thoughts on the Loudoun County Transit system busses into DC. Are they reliable? Do you enjoy riding them over taking the metro/driving?
Currently miserable consultant here (not only because of D so getting ahead of the jokes lol). Client work/corporate work is just draining for me but also feel like I need to be doing business to make respectable money. Are there any corporate/prestigious/high potential jobs where you aren’t an overeducated lackey? Does the job become more stimulating later on? Is it better with roles where I’m not juggling both being slide monkey and trying to add meaningful thought? (2 YOE)

How do you deal with some mild sexism at a startup that has no real HR?
Mild as in there’s just passing comments about me, I’m the only woman on the team, I’m steamrolled a ton in conversation and generally made to feel stupid/awkward. I’m fairly outgoing and outspoken as well, never felt this way at ANY company before.

Any recommendations for software that straightforwardly helps you collect, manage, organize, and prepare documents for production, e.g. in response to subpoenas (including ability to bates stamp)? Basically a one stop shop that is simple to use. Thanks so much

That moment when your "smart" plan to boost your hours this month by working the Labor Day weekend (thus turning down all the fun plans your friends made) becomes sitting on your hands & feeling dumb because all the partners are too busy to delegate anything. The worst kind of "off" day is one you planned to /wanted to work, but there's no billable work...
My husband and I are considering a move from New York to Virginia in the next 3 years. I can waive into the VA bar but I’d be interested to know if anyone else has moved states and how difficult it was to reestablish your legal career. I’m currently licensed in New York and California and will have been practicing for 10 years by the time we move. Thanks!
I am a post bar graduate and currently seeking employment. I did not graduate from a top tier school, but I did graduate in the top third of my class as a dual-degree graduate. About a week ago, a partner at a big law firm connected with me on LinkedIn. He asked if I had a job lined up. I told him no and he responded that I should let him know if there is anything his firm or he can do to help me. We have a meeting with each other in two weeks. Is this a big law opportunity?
I want to get out of ID so badly. I don’t mind the work but the hours are just killing me. I just started at a new firm less than 6 months ago and I am already desperate to get out. It is not the firm or the people. I just hate the high billables. I have been applying to other jobs but I think I may need a recruiter for help. Any recommendation for a great recruiter in NYC?
ID Associates…how the hell do you reach your billable requirements? Just started at an ID firm and am lost as to how it’s possible when there is so much daily grind type work that you cannot bill for. Someone enlighten me.
Does anyone know whether FINRA’s enforcement division in New York will permit a hybrid work schedule, and if so, what that looks like? Many thanks.
How do my fellow litigators deal with hearings that don’t go so well? Whether you fumble over your words, don’t make all the points you wanted to make, or the judge is annoyed and/or gives a bad ruling, etc. I just had a hearing this morning where the judge granted my motion but only after acting annoyed and coming very close to denying it. Now I am replaying in my head what I could’ve done differently and kind of beating myself up. Does this happen to any anyone else?
Classpass: worth it?
Anyone else take the bar exam after practicing for a while? I took another state bar this past July and just remembered that I get my results tomorrow. Now I’m all distracted and worried I failed. Sometimes I really hate our profession 🙄

Have a PI case in Pennsylvania where a young child suffered serious injuries and will require 24/7 care from his parents the rest of his life. It seems like PA does not recognize a filial loss of consortium for the parents unless there is a wrongful death of the child… or does it? Any fishes able to chime in on that?
For the litigators...do your state courts use electronic filing similar to ECF or do only some counties/parishes use electronic while others are stuck in the olden times. If not, what do you think the refusal to adapt comes from?
Born poor, made partner at 35, bought parents a home. Idk if this is success but I feel really good

Don't overthink it I personally have made it a role that I commit no matter what to the next decision for a period of time and then I can re-consider it otherwise I will go crazy almost literally.
This is embarrassing but I lost a job because I was overthinking my career change and tried to switch back to my old job both of them fell through I managed to find a new job and I'm honestly in a better place now but it wasn't fun to go through just commit to it try your best and reevaluate.
Your reasons for leaving will still be there (if you returned), plus you’d be even less respected.
I’ll admit that I’m going through the same. I’ve had my doubts but you just need to look forward and get excited for the future.
