Hey folks. I am planning on freelancing 30-50 hrs/week in 2023 as Art Supervisor with 8 years experience in pharma to eventually replace my full-time job. Currently building out my website/portfolio and planning to have it done soon. Any advice for a beginner? What is a fair rate?
What has been the hardest part about starting a business? Marketing or tech setup? Or both?
I think I’m lost or I have lost everything. Nothing makes sense. F me. When it hasn’t been your day your week or even your year, or life no one will be there for me.
Is there an instant ramen/noodle brand that uses genuinely whole wheat?

I've been using Asha since they marketed theirs as the healthy option but turns out...

I’m an associate at a boutique firm making under market with 1950 hours req. While I absolutely love the people I work with, and I can handle the hour requirement, the work I actually do is just not my cup of tea (abt 80% insurance defense). I’m hoping to lateral to a bigger firm with lockstep or close to lockstep comp and generally more resources/better mentorship opportunities in the business lit./commercial lit. space. Any tips for going about successfully making the switch?
What are some alternative jobs for JDs/lawyers? Editorial stuff? We know how to write. Idk (other than teaching and politics)
Any jobs out there that don’t require independent / analytical thinking? Really burnt out from thinking and would love to switch to a more routine position. Yes this is partly imposter syndrome talking.
I’m a first year associate (I have been here a month and a half), what am I giving for Christmas to others in the office and who should those others be? Thanks in advance!
Any recommendations on relocating to Hawaii? I am registered for the Hawaii bar but currently based out of Los Angeles and practicing in California as a licensed attorney.
Any tips on leaving a firm “correctly”? Was about to go “of counsel” with my firm of 6 years, but then another firm whose partners I really respect (and personally like) offered me a partnership position. I predict my current bosses will *flip* (cut off file access immediately, try to beat me to calling my clients, etc.), so how do I set myself up for a successful transition?
Has anyone transitioned from a case smart attorney position to an associate at Littler? Elsewhere? Is it feasible ?
Nothing like the named partner who you *know* is actively opposed to associate salary increases (despite living in a market where the COL has significantly risen and outpaced general inflation) telling you about how annoying it is to winterize her 4 mega luxury sailboats she has on her waterfront dock. 🙄
Curious to know what other firm's bonus structures are, particularly those with 1900 billable requirement and below. Trying to figure out if my firm's structure is the norm or if the associates are getting screwed.
Just verbally accepted an offer to become the newest partner at a much bigger firm in town after 5+ years slaving for a smaller firm that told me they would only “let” me be of counsel (and pay rent equal to my current salary) or stay an associate. So long, late nights with no bonuses! Adios, screaming phone calls out of the blue! WOOOOO!!!!!!!!
Trying to make the move to in house but most of my career has been litigation in various areas of law. I am trying to pick up some transactional work to get more experience. I am a quick learner and have no doubt I can move into more in house areas but it’s so hard to even get an interview to explain. Very few entry level jobs when I graduated and now can only get jobs in the stuff I don’t want to do anymore.
I have created a bowl for those who want to know more about their potential new firm - ask anonymously and hopefully someone within the firm will respond! Or we can help find the right person for you! Bowl name is biglaw offer - see you there!

Tips for becoming more independent as you progress from junior to midlevel? I am starting to be put into the position of just having to handle things including drafting and could use some advice from others.
Moderately jealous of all these new first year lawyers posting their swearing in ceremonies with judges they clerked or interned with. I got sworn in by our paralegal wearing at the coffee station because my partner scheduled a CLE I needed to assist with during the ceremonial event. Womp.
Congrats everyone! This week was terrible with omicron, schools closed, backlogged work from the holidays, general malaise from two years of a pandemic, etc. It might have been the most difficult week of my career so far. But, we made it. Kudos to everyone. Here’s hoping that next week is better.
Hello! I just accepted a position in Pensacola, Florida. I'd appreciate any insight about the town, housing, vibe,etc. If you guys could share pros and cons please. TiA!
