$3.3 million of bills reviewed per day for 15 years!

The website of Legal Cost Control includes a brief bio for Richard Hess, Esq. It describes him as having been a “consultant in the legal cost containment arena for 15 years.” My mouse dropped, however, when I read that he has “reviewed over $10 Billion in professional billings.”

Mind reeling, I figured that was an average of $750 million a year, or if he took four weeks of vacation, ten national holidays and the weekends off, he reviewed $3.3 million in fees every day for 15 years.
