In Re Marriage of Erickson & Simpson (Cal. Ct. App. - July 21, 2006)

I had no idea that it cost this much to get divorced in San Diego. Debra Erickson files for divorce from Dennis Simpson and hires Phillips, Lerner, Lauzon, & Jamra to represent her. They do less than six months of work for her before they're substituted out and then file a motion for fees. Guess how much they ask for?

Over $90,000. That's a heap of change for a partially-completed divorce, huh? Guess their fancy web page (among other things) costs a lot of client money to maintain.

Yet another reason to get along with your spouse.
