Law Firms Save $100,000.00 for Each Legal Assistant Laid Off

The National Law Journal is reporting that law firms save about $100,000.00 for each legal assistant laid off, and about $250,000.00 for each attorney let go. A chairman of a major law firm, who asked to remain anonymous, said his firm has cut legal staff. “What we’re going to try to do is reduce secretarial-to-lawyer ratios,” he said. “We haven’t gone as far as we think we can go.”
