There is no standard rate. It depends on the experience, the firm size, the nature of the work. $125.00 would not be unreasonable.

You just can't let this drop can you? This is the fourth question about this attorney's practices. You must seem to her like a client from hell. In another question you said she charged $150/hr for paralegal work. That is not out of line.

There's no standard rate, and each firm is different. Whether the paralegals have credentials also affects their rate.

Disclaimer: Please note that this answer does not constitute legal advice, and should not be relied on, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it is impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue. This answer does not create an attorney-client relationship.
