« Nonprofit Elections Group Hires Patton Boggs to Lobby for Paper Ballots | Main | The Morning Wrap »

August 20, 2012



Yeah I know what you are saying Lulaine. Attorney financing and fees can be hard pill to swallow for some clients, assuming it is all just going to the lawyer driving his Jaguar he bought because he over-bills. But you make a great point, attorneys and firms have a lot of overhead that is easy to overlook. Still, who wants to give lawyers anything resembling the benefit of the doubt? :)


The fight over attorney fees and paying them can get very messy. People look at the fees sometimes assume its greedy lawyers looking to cash in on their clients. Attorney fees go to many things like research, staff, travel etc. Sometimes its used as a leverage against defendants to pay less like the city did or damage the relationship between plaintiff and attorney.
