How many cases does it take to bill XXX hours?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Feb 24, 2017 2:51 pm

This is really for my fellow insurance defense attorneys out there.

My firm expects me to bill 9 hours per day. I currently only have 5 cases. I'm still in my first year here. I'm thinking hitting 9 a day with only 5 cases isn't doable...or am I wrong?

How many cases does it take to get to the 9 hours /day threshold?

Thanks

You could bill 9 hours in one day on one case or bill one hour on 9 different cases in one day it really depends. There's no set number.

Your billable requirement is 2160 a year? That sucks.

Depends on how active the cases are and what stage they are in.
