How Much Do You Charge to Review Michael Cohen's Documents?

In the case against Trump fixer and attorney Michael Cohen, federal judge Kimba Wood appointed Barbara Jones as special master to review the 12,543 pages of papers and 291,000 electronic files (from two phones and an iPad) the FBI seized from Mr. Cohen’s office, hotel room, and home. Ms. Jones reviewed all of them in 6 long days, identified 162 privileged items, invoiced for $47,390, and didn’t even bill for rubber gloves or barf bags.

That’s $700 an hour, because Big Law.

Michael Cohen’s attorneys will finish reviewing the documents on Friday, after which they will quit.
