Mr. Hrodey's statement reminds me of a case I did albeit great competition
by local PIs for a District Attorney in ..../Florida.
I had to locate a witness in France, name and old address given. Not long
after I had the new address and telephoned the DA that I had located the
witness of an automobile accident in ..../Florida.
He asked me what was my charge. I stated the fee which I thought was very
reasonable, but I was in a good mood: weekend looming.
He accepted readily, then as an afterthought he said: How long did it take
you to find the witness?" I replied: "Do you know the TV attorney Matlock".
"Yes" he answered and laughed. "Well", I uttered, "he is not paid by the
hour but by his expertise". The DA laughed even lauder and said: "OK, OK,
send me your report and bill."
Nice weekend from Germany

I attended a meeting of the WI state association a number of years ago.
One of the presenters was from the State Public Defenders office. I
rarely do criminal defense work and would probably NEVER do it for the
PD. At the time and this was probably less than nine years ago, they
were discussing the problem with the state pd being slow to pay. They
were paying these guys $18/hour and $0.21/mile in those days (by
comparison, IIRC, I was billing $80/hour and $0.40 or $0.45/mile) and
the rub was that they had to wait in excess of five months after
submitting their bills and having them approved by the court to get
My solution was simple - take Nancy Reagan's advice and "Just say no!"
