contact work at last

At the beginning of this year I signed up to a long list of "contract" attorney firms.
That's basically a temp agency but for attorneys.

At first there was nothing, then I got some really good research and writing projects for a very friendly small firm in Dupont Circle. It was like I was part of the firm, going in every day, sitting at the office desk and working my hours, going home, getting a paycheck on Friday.

Then the cases I was on closed. Sure, there were projects that came and went from them after, but very short things, couple days at most here and there. Great people so I'm happy to keep doing work for them whenever they need the help.

But that's not typical of contract work. Mostly it is document review.
So after seven months on the rolls, another contract firm contacted me in a rush to fill some document review slots. Tomorrow I will begin a three month stint in document review. I don't really know what to expect but given the economy and some big expenses coming up for my home, at least the money is good.
