Headphone recommendations for noise cancellation when speaking on a client call? About to move into a 1 bedroom with my girlfriend and don’t want her blender / coffee maker sounds to interrupt me

Just here to confirm that this will be worth the purchase. I lived in a 1BR with my boyfriend early on in the pandemic, and during a client call where I was one of two main presenters he started putting all of our paper bags in the recycling bin. Someone actually muted me because the crunching noises were so loud.

Headphones don’t usually work like that. Talk to your girlfriend and tell her when you have meetings and she should be willing to be more quiet or at least wait a half and hour to an hour for something. I like in a one bedroom and my spouse and I both work from home. He’s in the bedroom and I’m in the living/dining. If it’s an important client call I tell him and he tries to keep quiet/keep our dogs quiet. Vice versa.

Anyone have tips on how to best clarify client briefings with clients? Is there a list of must-ask questions? Our clients often don’t know what they want and I feel like we’re not asking enough/right questions to narrow down on objectives and deliverables. Even when we align on objectives, it still ends up in changing/adding request once they see creative development. Simply want to avoid having too many rounds of revisions as they often want to “test and see” numerous amount of versions.

How do you appeal insurance write offs/adjustments for doing work that an attorney is “overqualified” to do? My insurance client keeps making adjustments to my time spent reviewing/revising documents that my paralegal drafted, saying it is a paralegal task. I can’t just NOT review the things my paralegal drafts though. It’s only a 0.1 or 0.2 that I bill to review and revise these things most of the time, so we aren’t losing huge amounts of money due to the adjustments, but it’s frustrating…
