I'm a long time prosecutor getting into the ID game and billable hours. Are there any resources out there that can help me get more effective/efficient without spending months/years learning the hard way? Some days I'm at the office 10 hours, took virtually no breaks and yet only bill 7. 🤬
I am considering switching practice areas. I currently practice in personal injury litigation on the defense side. I have been in the PI practice in some way, shape or form for the last 9 years. However, I think it’s time for a change for me. I have always found trust and estate work to be interesting and would like to transition into that area of practice, on both the litigation and planning end of it. I am looking for guidance as to how to switch over. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Legal discovery question for California: can we serve a plaintiff in a related case by depo notice or do we have to subpoena? We are defense counsel for case A. Case A and B were deemed related by the court. Cases have not been consolidated yet. There are 5 related cases. The Court ruled that depositions are to be global—meaning all counsel from the other cases can ask questions to the deponent. We want to depose Plaintiff in case B.
I could finish my brief now and sleep peacefully tonight, or wake up at 5AM to finish it in a hurry. Guess which one I’ll choose…

Do your law firms encourage associates to bring in business/clients? Do you know of any law firms that offer referral fees or does it affect bonuses if you successfully bring a deal to your firm? How else do firms keep track of clients brought by associates?
Hey everyone, I have a little bit of a Ontario Employment Law question. I recently signed an employment contract to work in a company that is not related in Law whatsoever (still probation). There is a possibility I might land a job at a Law Firm here in Ontario. While I understand that it is a bad practice to leave a place of work as a new hire, I do wish to work for this Law Firm as it is within my area of preference. Would I be within the wrong to tender an effective immediate resignation?

I just finished my first full year at my firm and got close to hitting my billable requirement but fell a little short. Had a death in the family and my mom has been sick, which was distracting. Covid stopped travel billing for court/depo. Firm said I will not get a bonus OR a raise next year if I don’t hit hours. I understand the bonus part, but shouldn’t raises be based on tenure/seniority? I still do great work for the firm and clients are happy. Just curious what other firms do for raises.
Why did you switch from plaintiff to defense?
