So...I recently started a new position (within the past year). While I like the practice area, I'm not a huge fan of the type of work I'm doing. I'm a new lawyer. I had planned to stay in this position for years, but I've learned there is very little chance that I will get to do any litigation. Most of the attorneys at my job were previously trial attorneys and they took this position for the slower pace and regular hours. I'm worried about moving on too quickly. Thoughts?

Curious to know .. how many people in TAS hope to make it to partner verse trying to exit?
Recently had my opinion shut down because “as a white male, I was coming from a position of privilege and could not possibly understand”. Excuse me? My skin pigmentation has more bearing than any life experience, education and past hardships and condemns me to being inherently incapable of ever being able to grasp certain concepts?
I recently switched job and joined another B4 firm. As part of the hiring I was promised with a sign on bonus. Now I have received the sign on bonus twice, in back to back paychecks. I know I have to somehow return the second bonus to the firm. Does anyone know how taxes work on this? As both the bonuses were tax deducted prior to deposit, when I return amount do I need to pay back the withheld taxes to the firm as well? Asking as the amount is big and don’t want to go in the IRS route. TIA.

My fiancé and I (arranged marriage) are long distance for the past year with the wedding hopefully in the fall. While I have been working out/trying to be more fit in time for the wedding, my fiancé has put on quite a bit of weight since the pandemic, idk what to say or how to approach this to encourage them to be more fit. Mental health wise he is much more optimistic and is also in a state no restriction. We have not been intimate and kinda bothers me that he isn’t even bothered to put effort

Hey guys I'm a fresh law graduate who has done CS (Company Secretary) course and as such my specialization is, for the most part, company and securities law. My father is a lawyer who specialises in indirect tax litigation and wants me to join him. I however am thinking of entering into a transactional role and hence seeking a job in a corporate advisory. Should I give litigation a chance or should I go on and seek a role in corp law?

I am starting to be really considered with my stomach bloating. It’s like I am pregnant.

I currently have a “retainer” agreement set up with a client for a certain number of deliverables over the course of a month and a half. They told me it would not be big lift, so we agreed on “half day” rates. Obviously, once the work got started it became more than a half day. Now they are trying to add more deliverables and think it should be included in our scope. I think I should charge them for the extra deliverables. What do you think?
