Stationeries, taking calls, reading e-mails, writing e-mails, taking phone calls from other parties, photocopies, discussing billing questions, transferring of case to another staff member, etc. Anything and everything that required human activity was billed to me. I engaged them for a partition of a property co-owned with my aunt Annie Yeo (Carlsbad/San Marcos, CA). The amount sought was $16k. The legal cost was $16k. In short, my net return was zero. Prowse charged nearly $400/hour for his services. He billed 6 minutes for reading an e-mail, costing $40. Multiply that by number of e-mails over the 10 months my case lasted. That alone is enough to not recommend him or his office. You can find other attorneys that can provide quality service at lower costs.
