There has been criticism of attorney Robert Hanlon’s rate of compensation while he is representing Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Andrew Gasser.
As reported before, Hanlon won a case against a labor union in northwestern Indiana.
Now the Magistrate Judge has set his fees in the case.
He charges nothing for the case against Algonquin Township Clerk Karen Lukasik, former Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Bob Miller and Miller’s wife and former administrative assistant, Anna May.
The District of Columbia working with Hanlon on both the Indiana and and Local 150 case is Michael Avakian.
He charges $515/ per hour on the Algonquin Township Road District case, while and the Federal Judge says his rate of $540 per hour was reasonable in the Indiana Ironworkers Union case.
