Another Nail in the ABH Coffin

The New York Times reported last Saturday that “lawyers paid by the hour are less qualified and let cases drag on and achieve worse results for their clients, including sentences that average eight months longer.”

In my view this is one more nail in the coffin of the Almighty Billable Hour and is a derivative of my now semi-infamous quote from my recent podcast, “If you suck at what you do, bill by the hour.” To that, let me add, “If you have been indicted, get an attorney who does not bill by the hour!”

Thanks to Tom “Bald Dog” Varjan who sent me the link to the story.
