Where are my construction Engineers/Construction Managers ? I’m currently working for a company that pays me really good. (I believe) I just have 2 years of experience and my salary is 80k with my degree in Civil Engineering. I like working here but usually I feel like just another construction worker (60+/- hours a week). No events, no cool swag and very small chances to develop myself. Should I stay or should I look for another job ? By now I have 3 years of experience and 3 internships.
Should litigation come out of legal or the businesses budget? My understanding is business? Any thoughts here or advice…

How normal is it to be pulled off a trial team because you tell your boss you are moving after trial? I have a trial coming up first week of Oct. This case has been my baby, and I’m going to try it with my boss. I tell my boss up front that, for family reasons, I’ve gotten a new job and will be moving to another city two weeks after trial will likely end. He then gives my trial witnesses to another attorney, but is still going to make me do grunt work. Is he unreasonable or am I?

What would you recommend for a PPC service? Also...who would you recommend for a website? Think that’s something I can build myself? My buddy did it with Wix and it looks great. I want a “click here to pay” feature. Thanks everyone!!!
I'm glad that partner track came out so big law attorneys finally have some media figure to look up to. I was tired of hogging it with better call Saul

What to get for a new assistant for the holidays? She started working with us two weeks ago. Any ideas?
I am a first-year attorney in a 3 person firm (I’m the third). My bosses put me on the PD appointment list to ensure I have work but I absolutely dread court appearances and litigation. I wanted to be a transactional Atty. Over the last 2 weeks I’ve been living in a constant state of panic and (embarrassingly) cry in the bathroom at least once a day due to stress. I’m getting a therapist but am seriously considering leaving the firm with no backup. What do I do?
I just wanted to offer some positivity and encouragement in this last quarter! May the blessings continue pouring in while reducing the stress. As a newer partner, still in the earlier stages of my career, I am grateful for the insight this bowl provides.
First gen lawyer here (not that that really impacts the question/post) but I see all these posts about entering billable time and appropriate descriptions (mostly in big law or other practice areas (Domestic Relations litigation here)). How often do people here run into clients requesting meetings to have their bills explained or refusing to pay certain work? What’s your practice area, and who in your firm is tasked with these explanation meetings?
I tested the waters (currently at $105 base)and got offered a position making $125k base +10% comm up to $500k in atty fees that goes to 15% after half a mil in fees. The work is in first party plaintiff (same field im in now). My boss is desperate. He offered to up my base from 105 to 150 and up my EOY bonus to 10k. 200k base salary guaranteed next year in writing if I stay & named partner. some equity the year after.l if I stay. He is a lunatic though. I’m in south Florida. Thoughts on moving?

Your first year of going solo, what was your overall profit? How much did you spend on overhead and what did that consist of? Practice area? Thanks in advance!!!
Anyone in-house who practices law on the side as a solo or small? Obviously with consent from your employer.
I am evaluating an opportunity to join a small firm (4 attorneys plus staff) as an associate but not on salary. Rather, I’d keep a portion of the firm’s collections on matters I work on, and I can choose my rate for my own clients (and would give a portion of those collections back to the firm). Sounds like in time I’d be able to participate in profit sharing program. Curious if others have worked in a similar situation and what pointers you have.
I am starting my own firm next month. I am very excited and I know it will be a struggle, but this is my time and I will do whatever it takes to succeed. (Questions in comments)
Anyone have a company or person who created their firm's conflict check procedures? Is that even a thing? I'm just feeling overwhelmed with figuring out how I'm going to keep track of it, especially as I grow. With so many things to keep track of as a solo I feel like this is one I would rather delegate.
