Standard raises for attorneys in this industry is 3-5-7%, more if you're special. For paralegals, it depends on your firm but this rule should generally be okay. Smaller firm have more flexibility. Larger firm will probably pin you to 3-5%

I'm quitting my small firm ID litigation job with no set plan for my next move. I'm thinking I'll pick up some contract/doc review work or even waitress a bit or whatever until I figure out what I actually want to do. I already set a meeting with my boss for tomorrow afternoon, and he seems to have sensed what's up, so there's no turning back, and now I'm panicking a bit. Any advice on what I should ask for as far as transitioning out? For example, I have no idea what to do about benefits.

Need some honest advice. I accepted an offer but haven’t signed the offer letter. I didn’t negotiate my salary because they offered me $2k more than my previous salary. I was super excited to get the offer because I’ve been out of work for 3 mons. I didn’t factor in inflation. Is it too late to negotiate now? What’s the etiquette? I have never in my life negotiated my salary bcuz it’s always higher than my last. Thanks in advance!

I received an offer for 78K (lowball) the range for the roll was 78 to 90 K and during my initial interview I stated my expectations were 90 K. Is negotiating for 87-90k too much? I have other prospects where the low end of the range is 90, with the highs being 120.

For this role I am over qualified and even though I don’t particularly want to work with the company low balling me .. I’d like to have this offer as a safety in case the others don’t work out.

Thoughts?
