Complaints have been made about Grafton Township Supervisor Linda Moore’s attorney John Nelson’s charging $250 per hour.
That’s more than the $185 per hour that Keri-Lyn Krafthefer charged before she was dismissed by a court order from McHenry County Circuit Court Judge Michael Caldwell.
Since Moore’s attorney has won most of the skirmishes and certainly the major points of contention, some might argue that even with his higher hourly rate, Nelson is a better buy than Ancel Glink’s attorneys.
Today, let’s look at the latest bills from both firms.
First, here’s the last three-page bill from Ancel Glink. It totals $10,438.
The billing cycles are different for John Nelson. Below you see two months’ bills, which total $5,070.65. That’s about half as much as Ancel Glink billed for one month. Click on any image to enlarge it.
It may interest some to learn that Krafthefer, no longer township attorney, billed $6,197.50–more in one month than Nelson did in two.
I note that Nelson bills in tenths of an hour, while Ancel Glink seems to bill in quarter-hour segments.
