This is a humorous and sarcastic blog written by a paralegal in a mid-sized law firm in a mid-tier market. The goal is to share some of the pitfalls and foibles encountered in my own day-to-day experiences. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with comments. Complaints, not so much :)

The Burdens of Competency
Lately, it seems I have been given an ever-increasing share of the workload, despite promises to the contrary by Useless Office Manager ("UOM"). Apparently UOM doesn't have the spine to tell the attorneys how busy I am and how not-busy some of the other Paralegals are, and that they need to transfer work to them. As a result, they keep shifting work to me. Apparently because they think I'm the only Paralegal in the office who can do the work. I know that isn't true, but UOM apparentl doesn't have the balls to stand up for the Paralegals.
