Just do your best based on your experience and if the manager complains, remind the person of the email that you sent asking for guidance. Taking 30 minutes out of the day to set goals and expectations shouldn't be that much of an issue...unless the manager is clueless.

tly she felt like would be most appropriate deliverable wise. Offered up a suggested approach but asked her input on delivery formulation bc she knows the client and project plan. She wrote an email that barely masked her irritation with me and copied like everyone under the sun. I’m a little embarrassed and angry with myself for not “getting it.” I feel so stupid.

wondering if I’m incompetent or in a tough spot— basically one of my supervising attorneys recently left our small firm and their cases got passed down to me (im a 6 mo old atty) they did their best to bring me up to speed but ever since they left there’s some big issue popping up in every case (we cant reach a client, im not aware of a deadline, something minor wasn’t filed). It’s been like 3 weeks now and I still don’t feel like I have a handle on it, is it normal to be so over overwhelmed?
