Ignatz

It would boggle your mind to read this article about the fees that big-time corporate bankruptcy lawyers get. More than 800 per hour for some; 240 per hour for people who (at best) have graduated from law school but have not yet passed any bar exam; millions upon millions for some firms, per case. Read it and weep, or yell, or whatever you feel inclined to do.
