If you assume 4 weeks total of vacation it works out to 70.8 billable hours per week. If we round that up to 80 hours that's 15 hours per day 5 days a week and 5 hours on Saturday or 13 hours a day 6 days a week.

I have a feeling this guy doesn't take all his vacation time.

"I've been billing 3,400 hours a year for the last seven years," he says.

Holy Crap!!!!  :o

You just hit on the reason there arn't more (insert group here) at Wachtell.
You appear to be saying that, generally speaking, only whities are workaholics?
When you have somebody dying because they are poor and black or poor and white or because of whatever they are ... that erases everything that's great about this country.

DBgirl, how come everything anyone says has to be translated to some racial statement by you? I don't think anyone would want to work that many hours, just as the previous poster suggested.

Thanks :) I know some people think that I am a troll because my opinions are really opposed to most peoples' on here, but I don't mean to start stuff, just here like everyone else, and I do care to find out what others' opinions on things are.

So where are you off to law school?
