I brought a client to my firm and trial is coming up soon. My boss is having a more senior person try the case with me since I haven’t tried a case in this specific state before. I am not new to law and have been practicing 9 years. This senior person is a woman and has been the most patronizing, rude person to deal with. She constantly tries to blame me for “mistakes” that are either not really mistakes and/or she’s just as at fault for or more so than me. See comments for more.

Last week, I've voluntarily put in some overtime to craft an amazing project I am working on. For the love of the project, and because I feel it will be good for my career. While talking with some people a few days later, someone told me: "By doing that, you are helping to maintain a system where hard work and occasional overtime is expected of everyone." It led to an insane lecture about my work ethic. Is that person right? Should I feel guilty about doing that?

I have a junior associate working with me on a case. I try hard to be cognizant of giving plenty of time, being available for questions, and explaining the assignments thoroughly at the outset. This associate doesn’t do the work they are assigned, but is always trying to do things no one asked them to do that don’t actually help. I’m all for empowering junior associates but it’s getting frustrating. Any advice? I don’t want to throw the associate under the bus.
