So Altman clearly beats out MBB in some sectors and is trying to position themselves as an MBB or perhaps tier 2 equivalent, but they’re just not matching the salaries. Why were Analyst salaries only raised to $95K when my friends at big firms (not just tier 2 but also MBB) will be making $100-120k as second years?

I’m a bariatric coordinator and an RN. I graduate with my MSN in executive leadership in December. I’ve always wanted to go into leadership. My CNO turned my current job into a “leadership” position. I feel like all of this was done in attempts to get me to “be quiet”. I feel so overlooked, and under appreciated. I’ve been a nurse for 8 years, and worked 7.5 years in high risk ICU. Where I was a charge nurse and a nursing house supervisor as well. Does anyone have any advice? I feel so deflated
Okay. Sorry but I find it funny 😂😂

*Medical Records Requests / Reducing Expenses / HITECH*
I recently left my corporate paralegal role to return to a small personal injury firm. I was shocked to learn that the HITECH fee no longer applies if a client requests their medical records be sent to a third-party (e.g. attorney). Has anyone had any success modifying their HITECH request template for clients so there IS a fee limitation AND the records are sent directly to their attorney? Paying $100+ for hospital records is sickening.
Has anyone worked in public finance? I have an opportunity to work in this area of law but I am not familiar with it (I currently have experience in IP / Corporate). I am also a little concerned about work life balance in this area of law.
I'm registered to take courses for my Paralegal diploma but I already know what area I want to work in. The school offers a Certificate program that focuses on the area I want to work in.
Should I continue with the diploma or switch to the certificate?
How can the attorney you work for make your life easier, make it easier to do your job, make you less stressed?
Happy Sunday everyone! I would like some insight into working for Morgan & Morgan. I have a second interview this week. Particularly in Tallahassee, FL. Thank you!
Hello! I hope everyone's weekend is going well.
I was wondering if it is a red flag if a legal recruiter from a law firm reaches out to me on the weekend for an in-person interview on the early weekday.
Thank you so much in advance! I really appreciate it!
How do I switch gears from family law (3 YOE fam law litigation in northeast PA) to literally anything else? It feels like family law is in its own field but I don't see myself being able to make as much moving forward in fam law.. I would love to go corporate or even just to another state but I am constantly seeing ads looking for fam law paralegals with experience in that state.
For context I have a bachelors as well as a paralegal certificate- just finished the latter in May.
Has anyone made a move from a boutique firm to Big Law, regretted it, stuck it out, and found success? I am in the ‘regretted it’ phase, but it may be culture shock. I started as a legal assistant for a solo practitioner 11 years ago and am now an IP Paralegal. I’ve never had keep track of billable time, and I think that’s one of the biggest adjustments.
Any paralegals here who used their legal experience to pivot into other roles? What do you do now?
The insurance company I work for outsourced a huge majority of my work to a third party, ontellus 🤮. I am not longer able to bill for NPNP, SDT and CNOS. I received 5 separate NPNPs from ontellus that either had the incorrect case style, signature block or date. I also sent out an email today after the 5th incorrect NPNP that started with “I am honestly starting to feel like I am on the show Punk’d and waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop into my office” continued in comments..
I just wanted to take a moment to say “thank you” to all of you, each and everyone of you for being so willing to offer advice, suggestions, feedback, and for being so open and willing to share helpful information to all of us!
I've been a litigation legal assistant for 18 years. Now looking to elevate and obtain my paralegal certificate. Any recommendations for a good online school?

I love my job, but I am looking for remote paralegal opportunities. I have over 10 years of experience, both in litigation and currently as a senior corporate paralegal. Is your (remote) employer hiring? Any other suggestions or leads?
Thanks in advance!

How are the multiple firms listed on your resume? If you’re listing them like you’ve worked at x-firm for 3 weeks and y-firm for 2 weeks, that might be confusing. Instead, you might to name the recruiting agency and then the different firms underneath that.
Also, what types of jobs are you applying for? Legal assistant or paralegal or both? And what field?
Maybe practice assistant or junior paralegal?
Also, I highly recommend working with recruiters - you can work with several at a time. LHH and Robert Half are the big ones, but there may be some smaller/local agencies in your area that you can find.
If you’re able to get a paralegal certificate, I would definitely recommend it. There are several different online courses out there (some ABA-approved and some not).
Happy Halloween! The economy is in a slump right now, so don’t beat yourself up over not being able to pick something up fast. Given that, some would say it’s a good time to get back into school if that’s on the table. Make sure your resume states “contract” for those shorter term agency roles. Reach out through your existing network for better leads, remember that most openings aren’t advertised to the general public. Following up with a recruiter after submitting an application is a good idea, remember to attach your resume and the job posting so you make their job easier. A previous bowl post about getting a paralegal certificate ended with the general consensus that work experience outweighs a certificate most of the time, and depending on the state you’re working in you may already qualify for a paralegal title if you have adequate years of work experience in the legal sector. Best wishes to you in your job search, I’m rooting for you!
