Looking for advice on what to do with clients if I want to go in-house. We have 5 other attorneys so as of now my clients could likely be absorbed into the rest of the law firm. However if 1-2 of the attorneys here left that wouldn’t be an option. Has anyone done this and have tips?I don’t have an offer yet but I’m trying to prepare. My firm knows I’m exploring this as a career option.

How often are you having sex? I’m in a relatively new relationship, and feel a subtle pressure to have sex every day (if not more — often morning and night.)

(Another factor: my partner is underemployed, while I’m working FT.)
