What are the contents of experience letter when you leave any organization? Does it include mention of maternity leave and continuous 30+ days paid leaves?
I bought a condo in a small community in Jan. I’ve had to communicate with the HOA president here and there, and he’s been rude a few times. Today he was rude once again via text. I responded that he doesn’t have to be rude, and he told me he wasn’t, just answering my “redundant question”. I have anxiety issues already, and dealing with unprovoked hostility is not what I need right now. How can I address this now so it’s not a reoccurring issue in future?

They both drink so a nice bottle of wine isn’t off the table but was hoping to get more creative. Relatedly, what are people doing for their assistant? I was planning on cash but wondering if it would be appropriate to coordinate with the other attorneys that she supports. TIA!
Lit boutique v. full-service statewide regional firm as mid-level commercial lit lateral out of biglaw. Things to consider? Pay and non-equity partnership prospects are similar with similar timeline. Regional firm has a much stronger presence in my city, while boutique would involve a more national practice and possibly more sophisticated work. Fwiw I know some people at the regional firm and the people seem awesome. The boutique is full of well-accomplished and super smart lawyers. Need advice!

Interested to know if isolated or a “firm mentality” type of thing.)

Here is your annual reminder to not turn in your two weeks notice until after your bonus is safely in your bank account
It is January 1, 2023 and you are closing you December time. You realize that you missed your annual bonus target of 2,000hrs by 1hr of billable time. Your firm has made it clear that you won’t get any bonus if you don’t hit the minimum. What, if anything, are you going to do?
