Question: First Year Staff Attorney at Large NYC Firm Seeking Advice
Attorney Career Question: I'm a new staff attorney at a large litigation firm in NYC. Aside from my summer clerkship and some document review jobs after graduation, this is my first firm job. My firm's policies seem shrouded in mystery ex: there is an "unspoken" billable hours requirement, there are no set performance reviews etc. The associate in charge of my case is overworked and really snappy - and thinks I am the world's biggest idiot. The other staff attorneys all started a few weeks earlier that I did -so I'm really the newest kid on the block. Any advice so that I'm not the last one hired and the first one fired??? HELP!!! Thanks so much!
