Thanks A1, I should clarify it’s not the client delaying but their HR department. It’s been 3 weeks since the request was put in.

Yes. If you can't access your work materials and the project is generally incompetent / using you as a bench worker, that's a solid reason IMO

Been practicing a year now. Of 6 attorneys, 4 will be retiring soon, and I was brought in to hopefully take over. I am troubled: first that my partners largely provide me with no guidance. They handed me a client with a large quantity of fairly straightforward casework and have been hands off since. There also hasn’t been any talk of a raise/performance review. How should I ask for guidance/mentor ship? How do I ask for a raise, or should I presume one is coming?
