My law firm doesn’t have associate attorneys. We’re all “Members,” meaning that the typical angry partner/terrified associate relationship doesn’t really exist.
That is great for many reasons, but it stinks for a few others. For instance, I don’t always have a set of hands ready, willing, and waiting to do my overflow legal work. Also, I don’t really have a mentee or protege.
