Have any associates used a lateral offer to negotiate a raise at their current firm?

Yes. Did it as a first year. I just presented my current firm with the lateral offer, told them it was a purely money decision, and I’d stay if they could match. One hour later, I got an email telling me that they were giving me the $35k raise.

In biglaw?

There's no way biglaw would agree to a higher base pay. Bonuses, maybe, but not base.

That makes sense. Can you imagine if the other associates found out?

Are you asking about leveraging a lateral to another biglaw firm at one's current biglaw firm? Or are you talking about a biglaw offer vs. non-biglaw firm?

My dad was talking to my long term bf about setting life goals, and told him a story about a family friend whose wife had a large corporate job and her husband “was the stay at home mom” (said in a way that was clearly meant to be a dig at the husbands masculinity). My mom stayed home to raise me & my siblings, which ALLOWED my dad to work long hours/be successful. Anyone else face comments like this re: being female breadwinner/husband caring for children more than society expects?

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month.

Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued
