You mean it's not like Miranda on Sex & the City? Really?!

Thanks for sharing the truth about what it's like for lawyers. I often feel a twinge of "maybe I'd make the big bucks if I just went to law school..." and then I remember my brief legal temping stint (where I "copy checked" boxes of photocopies for 14 hours/day, 6 days/week) and decide NO THANKS! You confirmed all of my worst fears and I'm sorry you have to deal with all that craziness.

I toyed with the idea of becoming an attorney - as in a defense lawyer, you know, fight for the innocently accused. Ah... too many crime/law shows on tv...

:-) Yeah, the non-flexible hours... or flexibly eternal hours... I am grateful for my job when it comes to that.


Girl I can relate to the massive suckage. It is worse when you are mommy tracked and the female partner you are working with isn't and deep down is dying to be and dumps the real sucky files on your desk and bad mouths you to others who might consider giving you something worthwhile. Oh the joy!

Hope you are buying the lottery.


i have the law degree, have passed a bar and am a mommy who decided to stay home for the time being....mostly because husband is in the army and we didn't think we'd be here this long. we thought we'd be moving a few months after i passed the bar. anyways....this totally reminded me of the people i worked for during my law intership days. gah! totally true. i've had both the hovering supervisor and the minimal instructionist. so it's no different once they actually decide to hire you huh?
