Lawyer hours don’t add up
Is it because I graduated in 1968 with math, English and communication skills that I don’t understand the new math?
Seems to me that two lawyers hired at a total of $865 an hour expect to work for 52 hours and, “The contract states that the fees and charges shall not exceed $20,000.” My math says they can only work for 23.12 hours before they hit their monetary limit. So, are the remaining 19 hours going to be pro bono or not worked? ‘Splain me, Lucy.
Even if it was just the $480 per hour, 52 lawyer hours equates to $24,960.
Then again, maybe Oak Harbor didn’t teach me as well as I thought.
If I show my work do I get partial credit??
