Anyone have experience to share with back to back ivf cycles? I am still recovering from my bloat 3 days past retrieval but have a laparotomy scheduled for early dec. I really want to squeeze in another cycle prior to that but don’t want to put my body through it if the yield will be low due to recovery from my first cycle. Thank you in advance.
I just landed a full time role in creative at an agency but I have PTSD from my last job. I know this is kind of a broad ask, but I could use any advice that would help me not be terrible at work and keep me from getting fired.

Is it worth it to become a notary? Not necessarily as a huge side gig but just to have it. Can I do it out of my home and just advertise it somehow?
I had to get something notarized and I put it off for 2 weeks because it was an errand and I imagine a lot of people do the same lol. I am sure I can't notarize my own documents but it could come in handy?
Just got my offer from Shell. However the LOE does not detail certain compensation components which are mentioned in the initial offer (market competitive allowance and performance bonus).
Should I ask for a revised LOE with this listed or does the original offer hold good even when I sign this contract?

Hey fish, I started recently (within the last year) at post PhD level. I’m thinking about moving into pharma or biotech since I don’t think the ladder in consulting is right for me long term. How long do you need to stay in consulting for before making say 150-200k base in pharma/biotech?

What “tech stack” does everyone use? I keep booking demos but would love to know what people use. The categories I’m looking for are billing, document management and document automation.
I started my firm recently (immigration) and am a true solo. I have experience in a few very specific case types and do lots of research, but don't have enough experience to easily strategize for each consult. I know this will come in time as I do more types of cases and have a background of knowledge to pull from, but I need to grow my business too. I think hiring a very capable paralegal would be the best option, but I'm paying myself 1k a week. I doubt I'd be able to pay an employee. Ideas?
I am 38 and recently relocated to Charlotte, NC. Been practicing for 2 years with my own firm in CA and was hoping to join a firm in the estate planning/real estate space to get more familiar with the marketplace out here. Seems like firms in that space want someone with much more experience (3-5 years) or are not hiring. When would it be time to throw in the towel and start my own practice out here? Was hoping to join a firm where I could make a community out here but prospects look bleak.
I'm glad that partner track came out so big law attorneys finally have some media figure to look up to. I was tired of hogging it with better call Saul

I tested the waters (currently at $105 base)and got offered a position making $125k base +10% comm up to $500k in atty fees that goes to 15% after half a mil in fees. The work is in first party plaintiff (same field im in now). My boss is desperate. He offered to up my base from 105 to 150 and up my EOY bonus to 10k. 200k base salary guaranteed next year in writing if I stay & named partner. some equity the year after.l if I stay. He is a lunatic though. I’m in south Florida. Thoughts on moving?

Any suggestions on sites that make gift giving easy? For clients, referral sources, etc.
Has anyone ever attended TLU Live? I am considering going this year and was wondering if it was worth the expense.
Solo and Small PI firm owners:
-Law school graduation year
-When you started out on your own
-High volume or low volume practice
-Your firm’s average yearly profit
-estimated % for overhead costs
Finishing up my first year of big law, thinking of starting my own practice while I work at my current position. Thinking that in a few months, I’ll concretely work solely for my own practice full-time￼. How difficult is it to gain clients (mainly PI and civil lit)? My mentor also offered me to be an off counsel while I’m working at my current job so that I can refer cases for a cut, would there be an ethical issue? FYI my firm does unrelated law to PI and doesn’t forbid doing extra work.

Has anybody opened a residential real estate law firm? What are the margins and hours like? Thanks!
Throughout the year I make plenty of money, however, there are periods where cash flow takes longer to deliver. Besides building up a savings which I am working on. What do you do to absorb the sometimes lengths between payments?
Anyone in-house who practices law on the side as a solo or small? Obviously with consent from your employer.
