What does your opposing counsel do that pushes you over the top and just makes you want to settle the case? (Plaintiff and defense answers welcome). Mine: requesting 15 depositions of people that will never be called at trial.

If OC pushes me over the top that makes me less likely to want to settle tbh.

Question about clearing conflicts - I’m in my first few years of practice and I just got an offer to lateral from one big law firm to another. I am in a transactional practice and am currently working on a deal where my new firm is representing the opposing party. I imagine this is relatively common in big law and am wondering what to expect in terms of clearing conflicts - especially as a more junior associate on the matter.

Is life insurance a priority to anyone at the moment, and if so why is life insurance important to you?

It can be impossible to deal with financial losses due to declining health or unforeseen circumstances by not having life insurance. In these cases, the solution to your debts (that can affect the financial stability of you or your loved ones) may fall within the category of life insurance.

I work in insurance. I was working for an Allstate agent and was fired the day after my grandmothers funeral for being “unenthusiastic in our morning meeting”. Now I’m having anxiety searching for a job. I don’t think I want to sell anymore yet every single recruiter I interview with says I should, that I have a “salesperson mentality”. I’m burnt out. Has anyone else felt this way? How did handle it? Is there a different career path I can take or am I destined to sell insurance forever?
