Who Will Be Working on My Matter at Brotman Law?

Who've Been Working on My Matter at Brotman law? So at Brotman law we have a couple of different tiers of people and tiers is not driven by the value of the people it's just driven by the cost structure for how much those people bill so as a lower tier we have paralegals and we have administrative support staff most of our paralegals bill anywhere between 150 and 225 an hour that's the range that we set for paralegals and that's based on their level of experience above that we have a category for called mid-level associate attorneys they can range anywhere from two hundred and fifty dollars an hour all the way up to four hundred dollars an hour and then we have a senior attorney class that kind of overlaps with that that ranges anywhere from 350 to 525 and I'm at the very high end of that range in terms of our billing so there's nobody who has a billing rate that's higher than mine in the firm so the way that we divvy up work and who's gonna work on matters is largely a factor of who is the lowest cost person that can most competently do the task and we look at competency not only from a can they do the tasks but also who's most efficient to do the tasks so like for example there are tasks that are senior paralegal can do, because she's so good but there are times that I will allocate something to our senior attorney because he can do it a lot faster or in cases of our junior attorneys and our senior attorneys occasionally our senior attorneys will step in to senior projects because they can do them a lot quicker than the junior people can we try and maximize efficiency around here "I try and maximize efficiency with our team" because it makes them happier and we try and have a spread of people working on matters because a lot of tax matters are collaborative efforts so depending on your particular situation you may work with more junior people you may work with more senior people but I can promise you that no matter who you're working with there's always vision there's always transparency and there's very active communication on all of our matters to make sure that they're running smoothly and the most as effectively as they can for our clients.
