I am getting a 18500 offer from insurance on my 2013 Honda CR-V that was recently considered total based on some frame damage. It has super low 63k miles.
Worth taking it in to carmax for an offer to see what I would get for it?
If I decide to keep and privately sell the car to carmax or someone else. the insurance offer would be 12500 (6k lesser)
Worry the effort?
Originally bought for 26k in 2013. Thx all.

How much do freelancers ACTUALLY make? Like if I’m coming from a sophisticated firm with 5+ years of experience and want to bill myself out to firms to do diligilence, securities reporting review, etc. - how much would that make me per hour, approx? 100? 150-200?
Putting in my notice tomorrow. Could not have come at a worst time. I’m the last associate left in the group (4 partners now).

Been a patent prosecutor for the last 6 years. Kind of burning out on patents. I like them, just not all day every day doing basically the same 2 projects over and over. Any advice for someone looking to transition to a more general counsel type of role? I have some experience in other IP areas, business entity formation, and contracts, but nothing in securities, M&A, or litigation.
Is it a redline, or blackline? I know what Google says but my practice experience says otherwise.

So i just heard that the partners i work with are switching firms. I literally did work with two partners who are both leaving and most likely the firm is not going to keep the associates who works for them after they leave. I have an option to move with them on a transitional 3 month basis, but it would be terminated after the 3 months. I am really not thinking straight, please give me your thoughts, advice, leads if your practice is hiring!

How many of you are screamed at by your boss? I'm at my first private firm after working in government and recentlybgot screamed at at work for my first time since high school. It sucked, but my coworkers' casualness about it surprised me- one said all law firms feature rage screaming at least occasionally. I'm not going to leave my job over it, but it would have been a HUGE deal at my old gig and I'm trying to figure out how industry normal this is.
