I typed up a list! Client, date of representation and scope of representation. But be careful not to disclose any confidential information (which can sometimes include a client’s identity).

To make the task easier, I had my assistant at my old firm pull a list of the matters I had worked on.

I was able to download the list of matters I’d worked on from my old firm’s billing software before giving notice. It populated a spreadsheet and I just went through and listed what was requested by my new firm.

I am curious - I have an opposing counsel that sends provocative or incorrect emails related to our case late night (eg 11:00 pm Sunday Night, 1:00 am) and does not consider the timing (nor the content) of his emails to be inappropriate - what do you think about lawyers that send late night emails- are they indicative of incivility? Unprofessional? - how best should this behavior be handled.

Maybe put that amount per month into the joint account and then she can do what she wants with the rest? Reasonable? How do others handle expenses?

So, I got the job - a formal written offer was made today @ $10k under the company’s “target” base pay. I have been told that the offer that has been made is the best and highest available based on my experience (ideally company would have wanted a few more years).

It really sounds like there’s no room for negotiation but I want to try - do I say that I need $5k-$10k more otherwise I will be unable to accept or do I just accept the very generous offer on the table?

Advice please…
