Q: I work at a Biglaw firm, and I am also a minority female junior associate and feel as if the firm I work for is trying to push me out. What I mean is that there is a certain type of junior associate in my class that is sought out by partners. These associates are always busy and always have work from myriad of partners for no substantive reason. I have worked with these associates before (we are in the same class), and their work is quite lacking, and the questions they ask me are quite elementary, yet they are chosen over me and the other minority associates time and time again.

I have talked to other minorities, and our experiences are the same across the board.
