Very good point!If she is having a lot of rush jobs, sounds like she needs some time management classes. That is not cost effective. Had she been willing to offer you more money, she would not be having so many rush orders. Sounds like there may be more poor business management on the attorneys part than anyone knows.

I worked as a "non-trained" LNC while I was working full-time as a nurse before going to law school in 1998. As I recall, I made around $40/hr for case chronologies. I don't use LNCs often, but when I do, they typically get $85-100/hr. One nurse once told me that her hosptial would buy the nurses lunch if they would do chart reviews! I reminded her that the only way to keep LNC salaries reasonable is to demand reasonable salaries. Good luck!
