Today’s Quote:  Right-Hand Man – or Second Wife?


“If you become his second wife, you are a fool.” ~ Per a legal secretary responding to assistant law professor Felice Batlan’s survey for a paper on the working conditions and attitudes of legal secretaries.

The scariest finding is that 60% of Batlan’s survey respondents said that the role of the law office “second wife” is still alive and well today.
Yet the respondents said they still prefer to work for male attorneys versus female attorneys.
