Not. Not reasonable. Not reasonable to question a new associate’s hours until at least a year has passed.

I think the standard accounting format is the expectation that you will bill 3x your salary. If you’ve billed your salary, and have 2/3 of the year left, sounds like you are on track. We’re the firms expectations communicated before you accepted the offer? What are they questioning you about? If it is an issue that you are exclusively working on the files you brought and not devoting enough attention to the other files, that could be the issue and may be reasonable under the circumstances. But from a purely numbers perspective, seems you are on track. Good luck!
