I haven't even prepped a trial yet.
I actually have enjoyed my time, but anyone who thinks this is a 9-5 government gig will be sorely mistaken.
Could you give an hourly breakdown of a more or less typical day?
An hourly break down is tough but I probably get in around 7:30 and leave around 7:30 w/ 15 minutes for lunch.
Morning docket takes a few hours. But there are just so many little tasks like reviewing discovery, checking if it is complete, ordering whatever is missing, making investigation requests, checking for conflicts, preparing to advise clients, meeting clients, physically organizing the files, reading and answering emails. And that's not including any trials or hearings.
