Re: Senior Associate

I’ve not worked at a firm that had that designation. There are places that have like 15th year associates who they don’t even have the decency to let call themselves “counsel”

*bills 20 hours over holiday weekend to “Draft S-4.”* Tomorrow will you still be drafting or will you have moved on to the “review and revise” stage? I like to switch to review and revise after it comes back from the senior associate/partner with comments. It’s a personal stylistic choice and I onl...

We got married in August 2018, do we have to file as married filing separately to allow her to continue on PSLF? As Nony said, no, it doesn't matter for PSLF. However, you should file separately...

Is it misguided to spend my first year paying off this 80k as aggressively as possible (hopefully in a little over 1 year), and spend the rest...
