Approaching Legal Ethical Issues
Legal Professional Conduct Assessment One
Tony, before you leave I have something else to discuss with you.
What is it now?
I have spent last night reviewing your files and have found a bill for $600, which only makes up about half an hour of work. What is this about?
That is a fair fee, Erin. I spend a lot of time on my files.
That is in no way a fair fee at all, Tony. Our across the board billing rate is $300. How could you possibly think this is not excessive charging?
I believe my time is worth more and this is not excessive charging.
Tony, this is in no way acceptable. It is not a fair rate and it isn't even outlined in our costs agreement. I'm sorry but I will need to mention this to the commission, along with the other problems we have found.
This is completely irrelevant to any other issues. I believe this is an acceptable billing rate and all client were charged fairly.
This is relevant and reflects your large personal expenditure with trust account monies.
That does not matter. This conversation is over. You will be hearing from the commission.
But, I said I would pay the money back.
