    I’ve worked in the SF legal community my entire career. Six years ago, I suffered a mid-life crisis and left a position I was happy with at a law firm that had served me well (I know this in hindsight) for a long, long time. I’m sharing this with the hope that folks will know there is life after being at the same culture for many years.

    What I now know: You can start over. It’s difficult — the systems are different, the culture and people are foreign — the small task of entering client/matter numbers in infotext is daunting. Where’s the fax machine? Where’s accounting? How do I create and print an envelope? Where’s the printer? It’s hideous to think these cumulative minor stresses can carry one to the brink of a breakdown in a few hours, particularly if you’ve been drafting and mailing pleadings and letters, and servicing your attorney’s and firm practice for hundreds of years (or so it seems).

    As I did, you will survive. Change is hard yet stimulates our primal urge to survive (also learned in hindsight).

    The SF law community is compassionate. We may not have the utmost leverage to negotiate high salaries, but I believe the law community wishes to facilitate soft landings wherever possible. Be advised that anyone looking for a job right now, might not qualify for a year-end bonus, but isn’t that the least of our worries?

    Stryder, thanks so much for your insight. One thing I have heard is that there is usually a (or many) Heller alumni in each port. That is comforting to know. Like being in a foreign country, if you find one person from your home country, that brings some relief. Thanks for the encouragement.

- Don't be a dill weed.

- Treat other people the way you want to be treated.

- Ladies and children first.

- This is a rescue, not a bitch session.

- Help don't harm.

- Save the snarks for the attorneys and Above The Law.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
