I’m actually in the Ventura/SB area, but lived in LA for 6 years until a few months ago. Couldn’t find decent paying work in LA but found a great gig here. 1) 12 attorneys, 2) 1500 hours annually, 3) $130k, 4) 10% origination bonus which will amount to about $15k, 5) excellent quality of life/no weekend work, 6) $200k debt, 7) single. Enjoying the central coast much more than LA but have considered making a move to LA big law to help pay down debt faster.

I put my 2 weeks in and I literally have no billable work right now. Are they watching my billables? Can I just chalk this up as part of my "unlimited" vacation time? I'm available if needed, but also working remote, so could get away with doing bare minimum, I think.

I’m staffed on a case going to trial in a few weeks, and another associate is also on the case. We’re both mid levels.

How is this possible? I can’t see myself having time to do any assignments of my own if I have to review the all of other associate’s work.
