Looks like SkaTTTen's attempt at paying an above market bonus last year to a few overly compensated 25 year old baby lawyers was a desperate attemp to hide the fact that they are obviously a firm on the decline. Today, we hear of yet another major partner fleeing the firm. This comes on the heels of the dissolution of the entire staff attorney program. Working as a contract attorney in that dump is just as perilous. For sure, Clutch is still paying an above market rate of $40 + an hour, but on the other side of the building, Kelly is filling with the rafters with a bunch of new recruits who will be earning less than $35 an hour. No doubt the new group is being brought in to replace the old guard."
