Corinne A. Tampas

Even though I am an attorney, my family's construction firm hired outside counsel in a dispute we had about seven years ago.

Imagine my reaction when outside counsel charged us her rate of $250/hour to stand at the copy machine to make copies of discovery requests made by opposing counsel. When I confronted outside counsel re her fee, she said that her legal assistant was out sick that week and her fee was $250/hour no matter what she did.

Not only did she not get paid for the copies, but I found considerable savings after going through the remainder of her charges. ..... This is the sort of thing that makes the public simply hate lawyers.
