Any advice on how to handle this situation at work. The project I am on is behind schedule, but my part of the project is not. So, I have been asked to help my teammates up to speed.

A senior partner from a very small boutique wants me to go and head up a new practice there. I’d come in as a principal, and become a partner in 1-2 years.

Woke up feeling fat, unmotivated and reminiscing about my cushy pre law school job that I left because I wanted “a challenge”. I’m very thankful to have my big law job and the income and lifestyle it provides is nothing short of my dream, but I’m just not feeling it today.
Top five things I can do in my first-ever deposition to make it seem like it’s not my first-ever deposition? I’ve supported litigators as an associate and sat through more than a few depos, but still nervous.

Any of you move from California to a Midwest market and feel like the financial trade off was worth it? I work for the local courts, so I’m not exactly making millions, but I don’t expect to find a corresponding position with similar pay. I’d love to hear from anyone with personal experience.
Anyone want to buy a pair of Hermès NIB size 41.5 Oran Sandals in Gold Piqûres Écrues color (that’s fancy speak for “tan”)? Posting here because they’re ladies shoes and you’re all ladies! My mom died shortly after I bought these so I missed the return window and the cost/benefit analysis of fighting with them on this isn’t worth the aggravation. I have pictures, receipt, everything you would expect and I’m happy to further proof out authenticity.
How do you cope when you are extremely worried about your child’s health, while searching for a new job and dealing with a long list of to-do’s at work? I am unable to concentrate on the work piece and that is exacerbating the stress as I start falling behind on different projects. I love having children but how do you cope being in charge of keeping safe and healthy the most precious thing in your life? It is so overwhelming 😭
How do you deal with the sedentary lifestyle that comes with being overloaded at work and needing to be in front of the computer most days, sometimes into the AM just to get things done? I’ll have a good week where I get to go to the gym everyday, and then 2 weeks of it being impossible, having super late nights, throwing off my sleep schedule and still not keeping up. It’s frustrating and feel hopeless when lack of time is literally the factor, not some excuse
From perpetually sunny place and traveling to interview in snowy winter weather. I have no idea how to dress for an interview in freezing temperatures. Any suggestions on outfits?
What’s the best way to deal with support staff that means well but whose work product isn’t usable? I’ve told my boss and we’re working on a reassignment but in the meantime, I have no reliable help….
Anyone get bad migraines that are debilitating and affect your ability to work? How did you approach this at your office, if at all? I am on medication that has helped immensely but I still occasionally get a bad migraine and I feel weird calling out sick using migraine as my excuse because most people don’t understand it. Any tips/advice?
I’ve listened recently to several conversations about quality of work product issues during WFH. Some people say they have not given feedback (giving someone a pass) because of the need to be kinder and be mindful of personal challenges (childcare etc) and then I read an article/study about how lack of constructive feedback for women is hurting women’s advancement and how important feedback is for develo. I see both sides. Have you changed whether/how you provide feedback?
Need some advice. Have an offer from a firm I love, with partnership potential. Hours are more than my current firm, and work seems more rigorous. Overall, firm is similarly situated. Have a second round with an in house position, decent company. Just had a baby (8 months old now) and feeling guilty about accepting firm position due to the added pressure and greater hours requirement. Any thoughts or advice? Would be greater appreciated.
Returning to the office soon, as a new lateral who has never even been to the office. Lots of celebrations and happy hours are being put on the calendar. I have zero desire to go (I’ve always hated this stuff). Who wants to co-sign my dipping out?
Pregnant/ first trimester in big law. Got informed I should be taking point on some aspects of a major trial, set right around my due date. I don’t want to announce I’m pregnant yet, and don’t want to get pulled from matters so early. But I also don’t want partners to resent that I knew I would be gone for this trial and that I didn’t tell the team sooner, so a different attorney could have taken point from the start (rather than me having to catch someone up in a few months). Any advice?
How do you deal with partners/colleagues who are essentially bullies even when they're wrong?
