Book: Double Billing - A Young Lawyer's Tale Of Greed, Sex, Lies, And The Pursuit Of A Swivel Chair

Double Billing - A Young Lawyer's Tale Of Greed, Sex, Lies, And The Pursuit Of A Swivel Chair is Cameron Stracher's searing indictment of the "billable hour" based on the fictional account of a young associate at a large New York City law firm, the fictional Cavanaugh & Crowley.

Stracher's protagonist shares how clients sometimes pay twice for virtually the same service--once by the associate and then again by the partners. Litigants pay their respective attorneys outrageous fees to research and argue the same, narrow points of law based on the firm's credo: "the longer C & C fights on behalf of a client, the more C & C gets paid."
