I was told this before. I will look more deeply into DC’s requirement.

after three years? DC, MD, IL, Arizona.After 5 years, Texas, Colorado. These all have various guidelines on other requirements, but don’t require reciprocity.


Thank you! I’ll look into these states more deeply.

DC and then once you’ve been practicing for 5 years you can waive into like 45 states.


Saw this same question posted on Reddit recently



Got it. Thanks for telling me!


No where

That’s what I thought.

Hi All,

I will be joining LTI as a PMO shortly. Had few questions, are they offering any asset like laptops, headphones etc. as they are still on hybrid model, if yes, will be handed over to the employees or owned by company itself. Also, what's the average hike an employee gets in a year.

Your reply would be highly appreciated


hardest week I’ve experienced in my career (25) and I just can’t stop crying. It’s too much pressure and I don’t know how I will get through this. I worked until 9pm+ every night this week and at this point I see no balance between work and personal life. I understand there’s good days and bad but this week was insane. Im scared Im going to get fired for not being good enough and I know I’m unhealthy mentally. It’s also impacting the relationships in my life. No question just venting.

Rising second year attorney looking to lateral firms into a different type of practice area in my same city, does anyone know of any recruiters that they can recommend to help the search in Florida?


Hi, not licensed in Florida but I am hoping this bowl can help me out. My old college friend filed a case in Miami pro se. I am not helping him out but he asked me how long he has to respond to the other party’s motion to dismiss. In my state our state civil procedures dictates a response time but it appears in Florida it doesn’t? The only info I can find is on the judge’s individual webpage’s that states a response has to be filed before the hearing date? Am I missing something?
