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.

I’m being told over and over that I’m indispensable. They offered me $115k per year. I have no idea how to approach this conversation. Wisdom?

So I just accidentally found out that the senior associate in our office makes almost 3x the amount I do per month.

Is it normal for there to be that big of a difference in pay? I just want to know if I’m getting screwed.

Small family law firm. We hired our first associate almost 2 years ago. Granted her first year was virtual due to pandemic but she just doesn’t seem to be getting it. Motions are not nearly where they should be to the point where we can’t even give edits, we’re having to do complete rewrites. We spoke to her and her response was that we’re not paying her to give her all. We kept her on and gave her feedback and another chance. Nothing changed. Do we talk to her again or is it time to let her go?
