I’m an associate attorney at a mid-size family law practice. (5 attorneys, 3 support staff). I’ve been here for 3 years and just asked for a raise to $130k from $90k. My annual billable target is 1400. However, since I’ve been here I’ve barely broken 1000 despite working my ass off. I bill out at $375. They told me no more raises unless I start taking my own cases. Now they just hired a new associate and are paying him $170k and he takes his own cases. Am I being unreasonable asking for $130k?

I'm curious what folks think about the Mido-Hodinkee GMT. I know Mido is a solid brand but they have never been on my radar and I normally would never think about a collab(gimmick) watch. However, something about the retro look, true GMT ETA, in a 40.5 case speaks to me. It's just 1400 USD but I've never bought a watch without physically touching/trying it.

Saw posting just come up for a role at a place I was a legal intern at during law school. I had a really positive experience there and I personally know the Chief Legal Officer and the CEO. Is it inappropriate to reach out to the CLO directly?

Client extremely unhappy with project. Complained to the MD that my project lead has no idea what he’s doing. It’s only me and my SD on the project. This is my first project at the firm and first consulting gig (experienced hire). I made it a point to always ask to help the SD and he would ignore me. Now the MD wants to catch up with me Monday to understand what happened. How should I prepare? Do I present all the messages between SD and I where he blows me off every time I ask to help him?

Moms, please help ! Our toddler is 2.5 and we are having a lot of issues with him sitting in one place and eating food. He takes 4 - 5 bites and goes running to play with something. He is picky but atleast he was eating some vegetables, fruits - and now he is fussy even with them. He hates high chair so we can't constrain him. How did you tackle toddler eating struggles? Context - we did potty training a week back and not sure whether that has impacted eating behavior. Nothing else has changed.

Is it just me or do ya'all gut heavy scuffs on the back of your dress shoes? Any tips on how to avoid them? I think I tend to keep my legs close to the chair legs.

Looking at Assisted Living/Senior Care company BKD.
Terrible financials but a rally is near. HCA just acquired them which will 3x their patient volume, helping them see a vast increase in revenue. May break $10+ next week. $9 - 6/18 calls are pretty cheap as well.
But to be safe, go with a straddle play on this. Short to mid-term it may correct big time due to its overvaluation. Numbers are atrocious.
