All my hours are average.


Nice try, HR.


10hrs to bill 7 because the partners waste our time with numerous 35-55 min long convos about their personal lives.


If I’m not pushing myself, and relatively focused, I’ll work 10 to bill 7-7.5. If I’m being lazy or unfocused, I work 9-11 to bill 6. If I’m pushing myself, I work 11-12 to bill 8-10.


24 hours


I’m always thinking or dreaming about my cases so I just bill 24 hours to the client each day.


Usually 10 -12 - sometimes more sometimes less (usually more) including non billable tasks. Bill around 8-10.


well I billed 2067 last year, plus let’s say an extra 600 hours of “work”. Let’s go 10.5 “ish”


I work 12 and bill 7 because ID your bills get shredded


Probably 10-11

I know this is a total trap, but I generally work anywhere from 8 to 10 or 11 hours a day. I haven’t had to do the fabled 12 hour day yet but now that the holidays are over, anything is possible.

Work like 10 and bill like 9 or 9.5

on average i bill 8.2-8.5 every day

All of them

I have gotten more than one talking to regarding being overly eager to cooperate with the other side and push towards a settlement. My boss told me that he doesn’t really respect lawyers who “chase settlements.” I told my boss that I was taught only the most factually contentious cases should be tried and the rest should be settled. He said he completely disagreed. I am concerned that my favorite part of the job is off the table. I LOVE negotiating and haggling. Any advice?

How long does someone generally have to make this type of decision? Im a 2018 T14 grad for reference if it matters.

Does anyone know if in a negligent supervision case against a school district if it’s any kind of mitigating factor that there was not enough money for the school to hire more staff?

I know the school is held to the reasonable supervision standard. Is it possible they acted reasonably given the constraints of the limited budget?
