Most big firms—most offices or workplaces even—-have their own versions of touchy-feely bra-checking partners.
I fear my job is on the line. It’s not my fault the rainmaker thought I had the experience of a fifth or sixth year law firm associate
I feel a great deal of loyalty to the partner, but I am concerned about the future of the law firm, and more importantly, my job.
Honestly, what’s wrong with my Ford F150? And if I have to get a new car, what’s best for a youngish associate who thinks he’s moving up?
I am really very content with my job as a seventh year associate at a megafirm—I’m happy just plodding.
Should I spill the beans and ‘fess up to lying to the partner or try to maintain the charade temporarily then let it die?

What do you think are my chances of getting a job at a New York firm like Wachtell or White and Case? Honestly.
I’d rather be flipping burgers and serving up McFlurries from the drive-thru than practicing law.
Is there a tiered system of document review, like going to law school or being on law review?
