What’s the latest you’ve ever been to a court appearance? Covered for a colleague of mine today and was 15 mins late 🫣. To my defense though - the opposing party called me right before I was leaving my place to ask me questions about the stipulation agreement, which both parties signed 30 mins before the appearance. Plus, I live an hour away from the courthouse. Still I was embarrassed that I was late and obviously mortified. Case settled though!

I was asked my salary expectations in a first round interview and think I shot myself in the foot - gave too narrow of a range and started lower than I realistically want/think I deserve/would make it worth it to leave my position. How do I go back on this and ask for a higher range? Is that even possible?

First time Dad and my 15 month old keeps running up the stairs at my in-laws place and they keep encouraging it. Stairs are almost 10 inches high with nothing underneath and I’m worried that he might slip and fall in between the stairs. My FIL is a bit of a know-it-all and keeps insisting it’s safe and I don’t agree. What do I do? Don’t want to fight the entire house full of people about this and kid enjoys it too much and cries a lot if I/we prevent him from climbing

Senior associate considering an in-house role but am not sure about how conflicts play into the equation. The in-house role is kind of my ideal job (sector counsel) and I’m really excited about it. However it’s at my biggest client’s biggest competitor. Both are Fortune 100 companies. My client provides maybe a quarter of my work and I am regularly adverse to various sectors/businesses of the new company for my big client and a few other clients. This feels like a no go. Thoughts?

I live in an apt unit right next to the gym. When people use any of the weight/press machines they let the weights slam down full speed. It’s super loud and startling.

These activities occur multiple times throughout the day/evening, but the weights slamming down is the worst. I ask the folks using the gym to be more mindful. But is there a good way to get my LL to do anything?

I also know, sadly, that doctors don’t always follow up on things they should, or overlook things, hence med mal claims. Should I alert my client to this and have him follow up w/his doc, or stay in my lane??
