Abstract

This essay discusses how much of a lawyer’s embedded assumptions and cognitive errors can come across in something as simple as a time entry on a bill. So much can be revealed about how a lawyer views himself or herself in society and about the lawyer’s relationship with the client that it’s worth examining what we can find when we look at legal bills.

Keywords: professional responsibility, legal ethics, legal bills, timesheets, attorney fees, bankruptcy
