As I kept a watchful eye on my iPhone as my partner Brian’s wife Katie started into her 36th hour of labor, I felt a twinge of concern. “How is she handling all that labor?” “How is Brian holding up through all those contractions?”
And then it occurred to me. I quickly picked up my iPhone and sent Brian a text. “Are you sure Katie is not billing by the hour?”
I laughed to myself raptured in my own wit. The more I thought about it, the more I laughed. In many ways, practicing law to a set of minimum hourly billings is like endless labor. You and your client endure the pain of it. But the baby never seems to come.
Congratulations to Brian and Katie who welcome a beautiful little girl into the Traverse Legal Family!
