Do the arrive Sunday evening, less stress

Depends do you have a family, kid, SO?

I do red eye every alternate week so I can hangout with my friends on Sunday!

Agree with arrive Sunday evening. Hard to be productive after a red eye

Fly out Sunday, consider it a work day, take Friday off.

If it is a 4+ hour red flight, I can do red eyes. I just pop a caffeine pill Monday and I’m good. Especially with the lay flat seats (got exec platinum real quick w cross county flights). But I’m on a project where it’s only 2 hours cause of jet stream so I do Sunday night.

I flew the red eye every week for a year, but I also sleep really well on flights 💁‍♀️

@P2, where they do that at? Most definitely not the slave master, umm I mean PwC I’ve come to know and love

Someone please tell me if I am crazy. I am at a family law firm with approximately 25 attorneys.

Now at my current firm I have a paralegal who really only makes my job more difficult… am I crazy to say that I don’t need a paralegal as I am comfortable operating as a solo and pay me slightly. I’m already pretty much operating on my own anyway. Feel like it’s a win win.

Only 477 went to principal and 430 to interest. My bank says this is because of the interest tacked on through 1/3, and my next bill will calculate from 1/4. But isn’t this still a penalty? With less going to principal, I’m…

I signed up with Hyatt legal hoping to get guidance on estate planning. The law firm just asked us to fill a form and they created the documents. Not to mention they just named the trust after my SO (male) which is another story. My question is who would actually give me guidance on trusts, creating them, funding them etc? Outside of these generic papers?
