I have a junior who is pregnant, she hasn’t announced her pregnancy yet to the wider team and she hasn’t asked me for a lighter workload, but I do feel guilty sending her more work. I want to make things easier for her. Am I approaching or managing her appropriately?
Traveling from Seattle-NY-Dubai-India soon. I want to take alcohol for my father but I don't drink. Which Scotch/whiskey is popular? Is it better to buy here, and check it in or in duty free?
Hi, struggling here. Boyfriend’s sister got pregnant at 20 and she has decided to get an abortion. Parents and boyfriend are encouraging her and “logically” is seems the right decisions because she and her boyfriend do not have a possible way to care for this baby. Boyfriend is a new christian and family catholic but not practicing. I’m struggling with trying to not be judgmental about the support for abortion. I honestly feel so torn between what the bible says and the situation. Any advice?

I’ve applied to a job I’m qualified for, description is DMV or remote. I’m not in the area but have WFH experience so I messaged the recruiter on LinkedIn who asked for my resume. After sending my resume they say the job has changed to DMV only. I check the job posting on their site and it still says DMV or remote.
I guess I’ll never know…but was that a rejection? 🥲
Also, in general, very annoying to find out after sending resume/reaching out that a job will not be fully remote.

Have 50k in a checking account at a local bank getting no returns. I like having liquid assets since I support currently myself & girlfriend and any unexpected expenses my mother & younger brother have. Any advice how to calculate what I should keep on reserve vs. invest + learn about consequences of pulling investments early (more tax, fees, etc.). I feel like the inability to access funds when my family needs it has been the reason I haven’t invested outside of 401k and have this cash reserve
So far I’ve been through 1 IVF cycle. I have one embryo that is frozen waiting for transfer. My doctor is wanting me to do another round of IVF to back eggs for baby number two down the road. Has anyone been through this? I know of two people around my age that got pregnant naturally with their second baby after IVF. Does anyone know about banking embryos for future use instead of transferring? My insurance doesn’t cover anything so all this of out of pocket.

Today has been a great day. Went on a short hike and set this up to tell my husband that we are pregnant. The journey has been tough but we're happy and hopeful for a good journey ahead ❤️ Hope this post spreads some positive vibes.
The setup had three origami tigers, a succulent, a globe, a picture of us, an announcement poster I made, a piece of rainbow cake and one Toblerone 😊
Saw lots of posts about rentals and wanted to share my experience as someone who currently has 14 units that I am currently looking to sell.
Pros : cheap real estate in PA, good cashflow when all tenants pay, PA is an easy state to evict someone if they aren't paying (unlike NY/NJ)
Cons : Cheap real estate usually means not the best area, tenants are all liars, random expenses fall on your head, if you dont live near the area you have to pay someone to do everything for you which adds up and may

Hi guys, I got fired after H1B is approved but before it’s activated on Oct 1st. Is there any way I can transfer my H1B to my new employer? The H1B was filed via consular notification. I got fired in August, so don’t have any pay stubs for September. Btw currently I’m on STEM OPT.
So I saw this in the news today. All I thought was …yup how am I handling it? This is my last year teaching. I just quit and turned in a “won’t be returning next year letter” I’m not putting my life on the line anymore. The districts don’t do enough to protect us. I’d flip burgers at this point. Not sure I’ll finish my contract at this point. Lack of subs. Subs bit doing the work left. Kid behavior. Lack of district support. Can’t pee when I want and have to “wait”. So much more.

Hi folks. I have submitted my documents 7 days back after qualifying the interviews and getting shortlisted. But I have had no response since that.
Does it usually take this long? Or are they ghosting me?

Anyone here work for Allstate? Pros/cons?
Hello!! I'm looking for a recommendation for a courier service that knows their way around the Miami-Dade County courthouse at 73 W. Flagler St, Miami. We are a business located in Seattle and need to pick up and record a certified judgment to obtain a lien. Even though this is a time sensitive matter, it's also sensitive in general, so looking for someone reliable. Thanks!
I love my job, but I am looking for remote paralegal opportunities. I have over 10 years of experience, both in litigation and currently as a senior corporate paralegal. Is your (remote) employer hiring? Any other suggestions or leads?
Thanks in advance!
Has anyone worked in public finance? I have an opportunity to work in this area of law but I am not familiar with it (I currently have experience in IP / Corporate). I am also a little concerned about work life balance in this area of law.
The insurance company I work for outsourced a huge majority of my work to a third party, ontellus 🤮. I am not longer able to bill for NPNP, SDT and CNOS. I received 5 separate NPNPs from ontellus that either had the incorrect case style, signature block or date. I also sent out an email today after the 5th incorrect NPNP that started with “I am honestly starting to feel like I am on the show Punk’d and waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop into my office” continued in comments..
Can you be friends with your attorneys? Wondering if anyone has any insight or experiences.
Is anyone here a litigation paralegal at Amazon? Or knows anyone that is? Just got an offer but trying to find out if it’s a good one. A little confused on the compensation breakdown. Also, how is it like working at Amazon? How is the work life balance? Do you think it’s a great move to go in house?
Hello! I hope everyone's weekend is going well.
I was wondering if it is a red flag if a legal recruiter from a law firm reaches out to me on the weekend for an in-person interview on the early weekday.
Thank you so much in advance! I really appreciate it!
I've been a litigation legal assistant for 18 years. Now looking to elevate and obtain my paralegal certificate. Any recommendations for a good online school?
Has anyone made a move from a boutique firm to Big Law, regretted it, stuck it out, and found success? I am in the ‘regretted it’ phase, but it may be culture shock. I started as a legal assistant for a solo practitioner 11 years ago and am now an IP Paralegal. I’ve never had keep track of billable time, and I think that’s one of the biggest adjustments.
What does everyone have for billable hours?
*Medical Records Requests / Reducing Expenses / HITECH*
I recently left my corporate paralegal role to return to a small personal injury firm. I was shocked to learn that the HITECH fee no longer applies if a client requests their medical records be sent to a third-party (e.g. attorney). Has anyone had any success modifying their HITECH request template for clients so there IS a fee limitation AND the records are sent directly to their attorney? Paying $100+ for hospital records is sickening.
I work as a paralegal in the Bay Area. I’ve only ever worked in biglaw, but am considering switching to in-house. I was wondering if anyone here has worked in both and can share some insight into the pros and cons of each. Thanks!
If you know your performance is being monitored after being reprimanded earlier in the month and the HR randomly sets up a meeting with you at the end of the month regarding a review of your performance, is that generally a good thing or a bad thing?
I feel like I'm about to be fired and I'm really anxious about it. At the same time, I've kind of lost care because I've been battling depression and anxiety for a while and I've recently realized I've lost interest in the legal field altogether.

I would speak with your manager and state that you need accommodation due to child care issues/ can anything be worked out?
Well, sometimes paralegal managers suck but partners you have a rapport with do not. Is there a particular partner who might overrule on your behalf here? Tread carefully.
Also, look for a new job. Your manager sounds awful. Good paralegals are in high demand.
I am sorry they are doing this to you. Are you the only para coming in? If not, can you rotate in office coverage with another para? I agree with Atty 1 that it might be best to find another position. I have seen a few remote positions come across my LinkedIn searches I monitor.
We have been rotating in a few days each week. The partners got to a point where they were feeling weird about not seeing anyone in there and we have some stuff that could not be postponed any longer. At first they wanted us all to come in each day, but I suggested that we just rotate to reduce exposure to everyone. That way they at least know someone will be there if and when they need them. It’s working well so far. They just needed some face time.
If you have other paralegals to work with, maybe that’s an option?
Most of the attorneys are working from home but all of the staff is working in the office. That being said they did let me work remotely until my kids preschool opened back up. I would just come in randomly to pick up or drop off files.
