Giving notice to go in house tomorrow and so apprehensive! I’m going to rip the bandage off first thing in the morning but I know it’s going to be like dropping a bomb on my supervising partner. I’ve only been here 6 months and we’re so swamped so it’s gonna blow. It is what it is but I could use some encouragement!

It’s always going to be like dropping a bomb. I was SO emotional giving notice but there’s never a good time. Think how much better it will be for you!

Rip that bandaid!

G’luck! It’ll be fine. They can’t be too upset. Especially if they want you to be a client of theirs someday. Lol. Congrats!

At least you arent switching from ID to PI after being put on a PIP.. those fuckers wanted me to stay late on the last date of my notice to turn comments on a pleading lol

Hey 🐠 I have recently realized that my verbal communication is not the greatest. It’s not bad. I just don’t sound like my boss(she is great). Any advice on courses/books/podcasts/prep/anything?

I need advice. I'm at a firm that recently opened. It's just the attorney & I. She's also my best friend. Our biggest client always comes in acting very friendly & nice. When we're alone he makes comments and gives me... looks. I'm uncomfortable but my friend just started this firm. It's been her goal for years and I don't want her to lose this client. She would be struggling a lot financially and reputation wise if we did. I know the obvious answer is to tell her but I don't want to hurt her.

Why do we choose to work in a profession where a missing punctuation mark feels like the end of the world? A partner gave me 8 minutes to edit a document and I forgot one bracket and I can’t stop thinking about it. I also told her it was missing so that she could fix it but she had already sent it to the client by that point, so now she also knows I screwed up. Is this as big of a deal as it feels?

Small family law firm. We hired our first associate almost 2 years ago. Granted her first year was virtual due to pandemic but she just doesn’t seem to be getting it. Motions are not nearly where they should be to the point where we can’t even give edits, we’re having to do complete rewrites. We spoke to her and her response was that we’re not paying her to give her all. We kept her on and gave her feedback and another chance. Nothing changed. Do we talk to her again or is it time to let her go?
