Stay in the courthouse. You’ll probably be heard by the assigned judge or the Part 1 judge that day.

I know I won't be an outlier, but I'm a young associate, and I'm finding it really hard to stay healthy and have much of a personal life. Not just because I'm not making time for these things, but because I'm often exhausted and think about work a lot. I do what I can to shift my focus, but want to get into a better life routine. Any tips on this?

Does anyone have tips on dealing with judges who take way too long to render decisions? I wrapped up a week long bench trial last summer, and it took the judge more than six months to enter the court’s final order.

I understand that judges are overwhelmed, but this delay is starting to prejudice my client’s interests.

In NJ, do parties / attorneys have an obligation to check their PO Box when that’s the only address they’ve provided in an ongoing litigation?

Partners and senior attorneys:

Interested to hear your opinions. Is it impossible to be a litigator and work remotely regularly? I understand that trials and prep will likely be in person, and arguably should be, but I’m a mid-level who has thrived during remote work.

I talked to my managing partner about my desire to work remotely more often and he said it’s impossible to be a remote litigator and it’s important to get back to the office (once everyone is vaccinated and healthy).


I’m still a fairly new attorney and I’m having trouble with billing. I’m working hard, but can’t seem to capture the bulk of my time. Any tips?


Had a partner markup a dispositive motion I drafted and they replaced most of my explanatory parentheticals with block quotes and/or over-detailed in-text explanations of the cases I cited. Does anyone else think this is a cardinal sin or am I just being petty? I was always taught that no one reads block quotes and that parentheticals are just a cleaner, quicker way to highlight favorable caselaw.


2.5 more days until I can officially put ID behind me to go back plaintiff- side. I’m not opposed to defense work in the future but ins defense? No way.

I’m still a pretty junior lawyer and am up against someone with about 2 decades of experience. This person has been using their seniority to make personal remarks and to try and bully me into messing up my case. What’s the best thing for me to do here? I’m trying my best not to stoop to his level because I don’t want to and think that it would just come across as being ‘disrespectful’ towards a senior


I’ve been extremely busy. Because of this, I have less patience for the constant follow up required for me to get things out the door (I’m talking about weeks of unanswered e-mails and phone calls). I have been finding it difficult to raise the issue because everyone seems appreciative and many partners (including the ones who are causing the unnecessary stress) go out of their way to tell me what a fantastic job I’m doing. Any suggestions as to how to raise this without jeopardizing my status?


Writing sample question. I drafted a really complex dispositive motion that was granted. It was obviously revised by the partners on the case but can I still use it as a sample?

Obviously I would redact or change client/identifying information. It was publicly filed and is available on the public docket. I am not one of the attorneys of record.

Curious what people have done in the past. I'm interested in lateral positions so can't exactly ask the partners I work with.
