My lawyer was representing a total of 5 clients (including myself). We all had to be in court on the same day. He charged me for 7 hours of his time as "Appearance in Court". We were in the court building only 5 hours. The actual amount of time on my case was 1 hour. He also charged me for travel to/from the court house. I feel that the travel and court appearance costs should be split among his 5 clients.
