Honestly, I'm sure they know who I am by now. :?

I doubt they're really gonna take me to court, it's probably just a scare tactic. In reality, I'm not that worried. I'm just glad I'm no longer working there because the last straw was a disbarment type situation.

Did this firm come up in interviewing with subsequent firms? Is everyone there a citizen or is it kind of a harbor for those who need visas? I could see the latter facilitating the firm's taking advantage of its employees.

I highly doubt Tina browses TLS in that prison camp of a firm where they take your phone so Anon associate should be safe.

Thank you for the answers anon.

Thank you for answering my question about the chairs! My butt hurts just thinking about sitting on those for 12-hour days.

As another poster or two mentioned, I'm also curious to hear what the pay is like.

Why did I take this job? Because I'm poor and unemployed. Living in NYC by myself is tough. Especially when you've got law school loans stacking up along with rent, utility bills, and just the general cost of living.

And like I pointed out earlier, red flags didn't appear until I started the job.

I obviously didn't expect my first attorney job to be so shitty. Pay was very low but I like I stated, I needed money. But after this ordeal, I rather beg my parents for money than to work for a place where disbarment is a huge possibility.

Looking back, I should have been more picky and wary. Oh well, lesson learned.

people are just ragging you OP. i certainly don't think less of you for having worked there. a job's a job. hopefully that future jobs get better from here (pretty much has to).

how much was the pay?
are you an asian woman as well? are there any non-asian women that aren't the featured partners?
how long did you last/how long do ppl last?
where did they advertise?

According to google, the Shotkin guy is or use to be Of Counsel at Mintz & Fraade.

Google "Mintz & Fraade JDU" if you want to see an interesting thread...
