I try my best not to.

How do you avoid it?

I just say a big tech comapny or a local xyz company.

I do to near and dear ones, and tell them not to tell anyone haha

I try not to talk about work at all when I'm with friends and family, to be honest. But when it does come up, I never use specifics.

Nooo. I act like it's some big important secret even if the client just wants a nicer-looking food delivery app.

Lol! Hahahahaha!

I am going into my second year practicing law. I am at a small litigation firm (I would prefer not to give my location but will say that I am not in a big market).

If a partner cuts my time… or the client refuses to may for some of my time (even if I DID THE WORK)… that time doesn’t count towards my total billable hours.
