For those who practice defense litigation that is not insurance defense, do your clients constantly appeal your billing? Or is that just something that's so common in insurance defense?

My practice is 70% defense litigation that is not insurance defense. The very few times clients have an issue with the bill, my boss shows them the pre-bill and the cuts he made for them. That usually satisfies them


I know this wasn’t exactly your question but…. As a client, I don’t appeal the billing. I just change the bill/don’t pay if it’s something administrative or excessive or clearly double billed. It’s on the client to appeal to me if they don’t like the adjustment. Most of the time the adjustments are things the partner should have caught and written off. I do know which associates bill for asinine things and not so secretly hold a grudge against them for it

No, like 5 different .1’s that all clearly happened at once and could have been billed as one logical activity of reviewing docket activity ( parenthetical to list all filings reviewed)

3rd yr litigation associate in midsize LA firm. Completely burnt out, overwhelmed, and it’s been seriously affecting my health (and my ability to have a baby).

Are there any alternatives out there with my experience level (practice is primarily employment and business lit) that isn’t litigation, but still pays well (like $180k+)?
