Clients are on one with deductions lately. Apparently paralegals should be doing discovery responses.

I had a deduction claiming that “draft analysis of applicable case law into MSJ” was a paralegal task. However, I’m pretty sure that client had an algorithm that was designed just to cut 1/3 of the bill no matter what so I don’t think it mattered what was put down.

Hello RSM coworkers! I am thrilled to be moving to RSM into a Scheduler roll. I just found out yesterday and want to be as prepared as possible in the next steps.

So here are my questions.

How long does the background study take? I'm guessing admin staff have a study that is faster and less complicated than someone in Tax ect.

When training at home what did you need that wasn't supplied by RSM? My home office is well stocked but I want to be as prepared as possible.

Thanks in advance!

What is the consensus on whether to mention in depo reports to a client that a Plaintiff or witness is attractive? I know its inappropriate, but we can't deny that kind of thing matters to jurors and should be part of any consideration of settlement, right?


I work at a small Midwest ID firm doing mostly MVAs for an Insurance Carrier. Currently have a case where where plaintiff is claiming extensive lost wages from missing tips from working as a bartender/waitress. Place of employment is a strip club, I got a feeling she’s a dancer not a bartender or waitress. But it got me wondering has anyone ran into someone claiming lost wages or revenue from being an OF creator and not being able to crate content due to injury?

Anyone else noticing carriers becoming even more of a pain in the ass lately?


Post your best billing descriptions/narratives:


Anyone have any suggestions for getting a client to cooperate with discovery. We were retained by a insurance company for their insured and he has not returned emails or phone calls in about 4 weeks. Plaintiff’s counsel wants a settlement offer, and discovery responses or they’re gonna file a motion to compel. The company has been made aware of the insured’s noncooperation but they have tell us they’re pulling coverage for us to withdraw.
