They’re probably going to ask about a 4 month gap so you’ll have to mention it eventually

Yes, and come up with a tactfully vague reason why you left (“wasn’t the right fit,” “got an unexpected offer elsewhere,” etc). A lot of people have been in your situation. Most firms won’t care too much about one short stint as long as you don’t make a habit of bouncing around every few months.

I am so terrified to know the answer to this question but it has been eating me up inside for about 7 months. A client signed an affidavit and it had a typo in it so I just modified the page with the typo and then submitted to the court.

I have a paralegal who works directly and solely for me. She is absolutely amazing at what she does. Her work product is better than most 3rd years. However, there are some times when I have asked her to do things in a specific way and she either refuses (not overtly) or does exactly what I asked her not to do. I have brought it up nicely more than once. Now I’m getting upset and feeling disrespected. I don’t want to lose her or fire her. Any suggestions on how to be more firm but not mean?
