One of the sweetest moments in any lawyer’s life is the birth of their child. First and foremost because of the joys of a new baby, obviously. But don’t overlook the more law-specific benefits, like being able to tell clients you’re about to go on parental leave. Witnessing their internal struggle, as they wrestle with competing feelings of knowing that it’s expected they sound happy for you and their actual exasperation at you for leaving abruptly in the middle of their project, is a subtle pleasure. Like writing fake legal tips late at night after your baby goes to sleep.
