There are a few personality types that are universal to any significantly sized law office:
Overachiever – When told to jump, they ask “how high?” on the way up. It’s even worse when they are in charge. Always expects everyone else to be just as motivated.
Ostrich – Keeps their head down, avoids trouble, gossip, conflict and extra work. There for the paycheck and nothing more. Kryptonite: Being asked to stay late or work on the weekend.
Douche – Always ready to take credit for other people’s work, or throw a pointless wrench into someone else’s work. Never seems to be around when hard work is required. Able to perform under pressure, but only when given no other choice.
Geriatric – Should have retired 20 years ago, but keeps hanging on. Has little to no grasp of modern technology or methods. Usually has some random hidden talent that prevents them from being forced out, like a photographic memory or incredible bowling skills.
Useless – Worse than the Douche, can not or will not perform even the most simple tasks, yet somehow remains employed, probably due to blackmail, nepotism or willingness to perform sexual favors.
Grouch – competent, but not particularly pleasant due to overwork, a personality disorder or both. Will help out with projects, but begrudgingly and unhappily.
Martyr – At first eager to take on work, subsequently manages to twist reality to appear as though it was a far larger burden. Will do their utmost to instill a sense of guilt (after the fact) for helping in a time of need.
