Do you ever notice that if you are working a file with a male partner, clients or opposing counsel refer to you by your first name and the partner by Mr. _____. Cont’d in comments.

This happens to female politicians, as well (e.g., Hillary and Obama).


An older lawyer once told my young lawyer self to always call opposing counsel by their first name. He said it was the “Great leveler.” I was very leery as first, I thought it would be disrespectful. Over the years I have learned he was right.
Every slight or hardship is a learning opportunity.


That is really great advice.

Obviously it’s a trivial thing but makes me feel juvenile/less professional. Like when female lawyers get mistaken for being the receptionist etc.
