What did they do during the 44.6 hours at their desks? How many clients did they at last recognise as being human, intelligent and right? How many of the hours were merely to create the ground of the charges? Reply Link Anonymous 27 May 2013 at 21:07 You should see the average of US lawyers. They are really working machines.

A chunk of money each year makes the desk a whole lot more tolerable. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
