I’m working on a case with a male lawyer who is well passed his prime. He is not listening to me (or the case law for that matter). I’m concerned about the impact on the client. Oh and he’s also the named partner of the firm. What on earth do I do?

Is there a partner you trust you can talk about this with? The other partners at the firm need to be aware

You’ve done all you can. Document document document but ultimately he’s the partner and it’s his case to fuck up.

Gonna need more to go on here. Is he 85 and losing it? (We have a partner like that.) Where do you fall on the experience spectrum? What's the sticking point? A motion draft? Negotiations?

Been there, done that. I went to the managing partner and another senior partner who was close to the old man and begged for them to intervene. Response was a pathetic “just let him do his thing, it’s a small case.” I ended up leaving the firm 6 months later, but he is STILL ALIVE and going to the office. 92 years young.

Hi everyone, hopefully someone can answer this question for me. I recently started working at this new place. I got an offer letter, passed live scan, had orientation etc. However, nowhere in the offer letter or in orientation have they mentioned preemployment drug testing. Since I already had a start date, is it safe to use cannabis at this point? Or should I wait longer to be able to use it. I use it to help me sleep. I’m tired of using other medicines to help me sleep. Thanks.

It’s not per say a problem for me day to day so not sure if I want to really try the lifestyle changes. Just wanted to hear the stories of others!
