$1.2 million divided by $600 per hour (2,000 hours), divided by 40 hours per week gets you 50 weeks of fees at $24,000 per week. ain't bad work if you can get it.

The price of justice, but for whom? The big boys pay sometimes 10 times this rate to defend their interests.

$62 an hr........hahahahhahah. You would be scraping the bottom of the barrel for $162. When Lawrence outsourced attorneys to fight WalMart they paid $600 an hr.
