What’s the worst thing you’ve seen happen in a deposition?

I once had a client who took a bathroom break during a deposition. About 30 minutes after we went back on the record, the police knocked on the conference door. Apparently my client had gone in the bathroom and relieved himself all over the floors, sinks, etc. This was a shared bathroom in the opposing counsel’s office so police were called.

My boss keeps taking digs at my salary, bringing up how I’m paid highly. I don’t know his salary but I suspect we’re paid similarly which may upset him. Any advice on what to do?

Scared of making a change. Feeling way too comfortable at a big (in size) agency, but with an offer from a way smaller shop — salary would be above average and better job title. Cont.

Need advice - GC process initiated earlier this year but the law firm told me they are not able to proceed with my case after they knew that I have transferred service line before. They said I need to have 4 yr exp in my current SL, which I won’t be able to satisfy until the final year of my H1b. Anyone in the same boat? Is jumping ship my only option? TIA!
