  •  as soon as you have more than one lawyer (6+ / 0-)

    the bills go up exponentially.  Every bit of work done by an associate ( paid  low wages ) is billed by the partner at full pay.  then each of the lawyers needs to "consult" with all of the others to say what he has done.  So each hour of billable time becomes multiple hours of billable time.   The crank turns and turns.  And that is how the Port Authority gets billed millions...

    AS a physician, imagine if I got to bill for talking to my colleagues to tell them what I did or was plannig to do for the patient- in addition to billing for what I actually did.

    As my father used to say,"We have the best government money can buy."
