We had a good experience with an Au-Pair who lived with us for 2 years when our 3rd child was born. If I recall correctly, we were able to schedule her for 40 hours a week and she cooked, light house cleaning / full cleaning for kids and errands as needed. The only somewhat challenge was finding stuff for her to do when she wasn’t working and setting up a network for her. It was very economical too (her stipend was 200 a week), plus we paid for a car, and her to take some classes and an upfront payment to agency)

He then gives my trial witnesses to another attorney, but is still going to make me do grunt work. Is he unreasonable or am I?

Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
