    He said 0.1 hours for each response, so he can only bill for each email he receives back to the chain. He can't ethically charge (maybe the legal ethics make it okay but I couldn't ethically charge) 10 hours of time for one reply all email. He can stay super late to get extra billable hours though.

    All of this is moot as no client with any sense would pay their attorney for such nonsense.

    Dude, you'll never survive your second year if you're actually spending separate blocks of real time for each billing entry. There ain't enough hours in the day.


    Basically what otc said. But yeah, I see the confusion I created with "response". I meant each outgoing email (that is, each message in the "reply all" batch.)

    And -- "Ethics? Are we talking about ethics?"

    I basically skipped my second year. I decided to go right to partner.

    Pretty impressive spambot action in this forum this afternoon. I had to scroll to page 3 just to find this thread--or any thread that wasn't spam.

    Why, do you know any white women that are likely to date him?

    Oh I don't doubt that there will be some, even though everyone knows where that train is headed.
