Given the current climate of police shootings, especially against those fleeing from police, this seems like dangerous advice. So let’s take a closer look at where this rule comes from and what it means
Gabriella Khorasanee, Team Lead of FindLaw’s Direct to Consumer team, admitted she “hated” working for “Big Law” in her otherwise beloved home city of New York. So she left the firm and pursued her interest in fashion instead, founding a women’s streetwear line that was sold in Paris and featured in various media outlets.
Khorasanee never returned to Big Law, but has found a nice balance here at FindLaw.
Associate Online Ad Trafficker Yuka Fujikawa also appreciates the work-life balance at FindLaw, having worked for an advertising agency in Tokyo, Japan that demanded exceptionally long hours.
“Working in Tokyo was the craziest experience,” the Japanese native recalled. “I remember going home after midnight every day; but somehow, I enjoyed it.”
