Q: I have just started as a first-year associate at a D.C. firm, and I am already looking to leave. It turns out that promises that were made in the interview (salary, benefits and workload) were just that — promises. It turns out it was just a line they pitched to get me in the door. Now, I am making $10,000 less than promised, and I am not working on the cases I was told I would work on. To add insult to injury, I have not yet received my bar results, so even conducting a job search would be pointless.

Any advice? Please help.
