How much PTO do you take vs. how much do people on your team take? My company offers unlimited PTO but I take mine according to the number of days given when I was hired before we switched to unlimited. My team members take much less. Am I an asshole?

I’ve been in-house for about 5 years now and the burnout is real.
Most of my burnout is attributed to high levels of anxiety/lack of psychological safety. Over the years I’ve encountered multiple instances of finger-pointing and backstabbing eg. escalation to front-office SVP casting blame to Legal for something gone wrong when in fact it was 80% due to their own lack of attention to detail/project mgmt skills.
Is this normal and how does one deal with it? How do I do office politics better?

Just reviewed an asset purchase agreement for a good friend. I spent 6 hours on it. It’s not my area of law, so I know it took me longer than it would have taken another attorney. I sent the red lines back to them with a list of questions that need to be addressed. This is in Utah. How much should I charge my friend for doing this?
