People may disagree with this, but after you graduate law school and are in practice, you’re all colleagues regardless of age. I’m under 30 and call everyone by their first name. My rule of thumb is if you’d call them by their first name in the office as a colleague, that’s what you should call them in the interview thank you note.

This! I feel weird when I get a thank you note as a Ms. (I’m a mid level)

For me, it depends, if it seems like they’re senior (Mr/Ms) to me or a lateral colleague (Hi John/Jane).

dear or hi? (overthinkers anonymous)

Like everything, the answer is: it depends. Where I am, “Dear” is way too formal. We would go with “Aloha [first name]”.

funny

I think err on the side of formality. I had a partner tell me they almost didn’t hire me because I wrote “Dear Joe” instead of “Dear Mr. X”. He was a psycho (and someone I wish I never worked for), but apparently there are still super formal psychos out there.

Always use first names once you’re out of law school. Unless it’s opposing counsel

Beginner and trying to get my finances in order. Income: $200k+. Maxed out 401k for the year. I have $60k in my savings account (just paid student debt off this year). I’ve searched the bowl… Are next steps: (a) invest (maybe $30k?) in ETFs and add to it each month, (b) open a HYS at HMBradley to hopefully get a high interest next quarter? I’m not convinced about the mega back door Roth (whether it makes sense for my situation) so putting in only a small amount there. Any thoughts? TIA!

Would you suggest paying down student loans (approx $29k) while 0% interest or put that money into savings. I’ve been on a 10% salary reduction since April and bought a house last fall. I’ve been able to pay my bills and maintain about 2-3 months of expenses in savings. My disposable income has reduced due to the salary reduction, but I’ve cut out unnecessary spending. I’m trying to decide whether to take advantage of 0% interest and get my loans as low as I can or put that money into savings.
