Looking for recommendations for a real home office chair—something with actual back support. Just turned 30, and my back has made it abundantly clear that the POS Target chair that I’ve had since college is no longer acceptable.

Highly recommend a gaming chair. I’m not a gamer, but they’re designed for people to sit in them for like 20 hours a day without moving, so perfect for lawyers. I got an Emerge Vortex, which is a reasonably priced one, but they make some pretty souped up ones too

Seconded. I got a SecretLabs chair for both the office and my home office. It’s amazing. Solid construction, reclinable, adjustable, the arms move a million different ways. Only vice is they don’t breathe as well as mesh so if you wear shorts or less you’ll stick and sweat.

I have really been struggling with my morning routine since starting my new job last month. I leaned a bit too hard into rest culture during the few weeks I took off between jobs, and now don’t get out of bed before 8:50 to brush my teeth and head into my home office lol. As the weather gets colder, I feel like I’ll be even less likely to get out of bed to workout/walk and have coffee/tea before work. Does anyone have any tips for morning productivity?

Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?

Finally found THE one, after over a year of searching and trying out at least 5 different ones! A nice comfortable office chair. https://ergochair.co/collections/chairs/products/ergonomics-mesh-chair-w-adjustable-headrest-and-armrest?variant=32511617597491 My criteria: mesh seat and back, arms, headrest I tried cheap ones from Amazon. Expensive, second hand gaming chairs. Tried HM Aeron (second hand) and while I didn't like the bulk and the general design, I was sold on the mesh seating. I wanted to get the ErgoChair 2 from autonomous, but it doesn't have mesh seat. AMA.

Appellate folks and lawyers who write a lot…is there a device like an iPad or something similar I can use to save case law I’m using that also allows me to jot notes on the cases and save for later? Wife mentioned after walking into my home office “hey, you kill a lot of trees.” I just find it very useful when researching to print cases, make notes on the useful portions, and go back to them later when I’m writing.
