Preventing Double-Billing Errors
Padding a bill or double-billing a client for the same charges are serious errors, which may result in disciplinary action and penalties. Research your state’s bar rules of professional responsibility regarding billing and locate a case from your state that discusses attorney discipline or sanctions for billing errors.
After sharing your findings with the class, identify the procedures a law office should take to prevent double-billing errors, including at least one (1) source outside of class materials. Be sure to properly cite your sources and to summarize the case in your own words.
