Does 10 hrs less bring me from 60 to 50, 50 to 40, or 40 to 30?

Ha - I'd say for 70 to 60, two weeks of bench. For 60 to 50 and lower hour totals, I'd probably prefer the 10hr/wk cut.

I prefer both ☺️

Any trial attorneys in here who can speak to hours at trial? The partners who I work for must have some kind of pharmaceutical help, because on a 2 week trial they are expecting everyone (partners, associates, and paralegals) to operate on 1-2 hours of sleep per night and be ready to go and be flawless in court all day, every day. This is my first jury trial so I have no context for knowing whether this is normal or not. I had a bench trial that was a lot of work, but not like this.

Long Post : I have a divorced female friend that I have known for over 15 years and consider as a sister. For the past couple weeks because I was on the bench and bored we talked about an hour+ often, especially when I am walking and need company. My wife went through my T mobile call history and mad because I'm talking to her too often and too long. She knows the friend as well and we all hangout on multiple occasions. Am I doing something wrong here? Or my wife is just insecure?
