Just sharing a story. Thanks to months of therapy I have finally become brave enough to quit in May, when my current project is over.

I’m posting this here bc I think people will understand how hard it is for people who are anxious / depressed to take this leap and actually change their status quo. I’ve been miserable for a while and know that my firm isn’t the right place for me despite how much I’ve tried to switch teams, get on better work, etc. I gave it my all and still had so much anxiety about my own failure and what comes next. But now I feel truly free and at peace. Therapy was really helpful in helping me sort out my thoughts for the past 6 months and overcome all the anxiety I have bottled up...

I work in a 7-attorney firm with a national presence. Partly because I’m only a few months in, I work a roughly 8-6 day. I’m also new to billing and often find myself working all day and billing just 4 hours. Whenever I bring this up to the partner, he says it’s good we’re not over billing our client. We don’t have minimum billable hours so it doesn’t matter much for the firm’s sake but I think I’m missing out on learning the important skill of billing my time. Has anyone ever experienced this?

Tips on how to handle a client who complains to you about your associate? The issue is ultimately a personality clash, rather than a quality issue, but in this case, the associate has very specific expertise and the client complains if an associate without that expertise is involved in the deal. I am also not the type to throw associate under the bus and the preference is to handle it in a way that means the associate can continue to work on the matters rather than restaff it.

Please don’t waste someone’s time asking for a referral if someone else already gave you one. Most companies won’t let you have more than one referral and all you do is eat up someone’s time that is willing to help you out.
