    Great interview. Boy do I have a lot in common with your subject – right down to growing up in Detroit, graduate studies at U of M, coming to Chicago to work, and thinking of law as (gasp) a business. I really like your blog in general. Oh yes, and the point was that I have a longstanding feud with the billable hour. I’ve written about it and today am hosting a webinar about it – see the post on my website if interested. Keep up the great work. I think we are connected on Twitter too, right?
