After introducing myself by name, calling me another woman’s name until I “earn” my name. Also “fat meat tube” to me and one of my consultants because he didn’t think we went to the gym enough.

Yeah, I have seen many who are mixed black and white and look Indian. India has many diverse people and color variations. Expect to be looked like that more and do not get frustrated. The good is that you may not face discrimination in many groups and countries.

Same experience except 18 and asked to see my id when I said I was 32...... we were really close so it was kind of a joke.

Client staff mentioned I had a voice for radio after walkthrough. Client chimed in “face, too”.

Thinking about bringing in other solo attorneys to my practice. I'm thinking about charging them 25% of whatever they make. In exchange, they would get all the clients that come in (which is a ton), legal assistant, receptionist, free rent, and free office expenses. They basically would be running a solo practice with zero overhead.

Is 25% fair? Thoughts?
