Quick Feedback

As a more senior attorney, one of your opportunities will be to mold the next generation of legal minds by providing critical feedback to junior associates. It can be hard to find time to give detailed feedback in a day filled with seemingly endless client emails and other demands. If you find yourself in this situation, please remember that you have to make as much time for feedback as you can, even if it is only a few moments.  Even a quick office drop-by to give quick feedback goes a long way for those who see you as a mentor. In this spirit, one day I dropped by the office of a young associate and said, "You were doing great on the project until you started drafting the documents and interacting with the client." I left right after that because I had a lot to do.
