Order Description:

Course outcome addressed in this Assignment: PA253-4: Apply ethical rules concerning client fees and law firm billing practices. GEL-7.5: Evaluate ethical rules applicable to field of study. Instructions Penny Paralegal works for the law firm of Wright & Honour, LLP. Penny must record her time daily on a time sheet. Most of Penny’s tasks during the day can be billed to a certain client. However, Penny also performs other tasks that cannot be billed to any specific client, and this non-billable time must also be recorded on her timesheet. She does not have to record breaks or her lunch hour on the timesheet. Penny is required to have at least 9 billable hours of work completed each day. Penny is allowed to bill travel time to the client. On 11/14/14, Penny spent a lot of time doing online shopping—instead of working- and did not meet her requirement of 7.5 billable hours by the end of the day. In order to meet her billing requirements, Penny decided to add time to the tasks she was able to complete on 11/14/14 and recorded these hours on her timesheet. This timesheet was submitted to her supervising attorney and included the following information: Penny’s Timesheet Form Attorney Honour reviewed Penny’s timesheet and was very upset with the way it was completed. He told Penny that she had incorrectly billed her time for the day and asked her to re-do the timesheet accurately and in accordance with the Model Rules of Ethics. Please use this link to access Penny’s timesheet and complete it accurately. You are to provide a one paragraph description of what Penny did wrong and outline which Model Rule(s) of Ethics was/were violated. Please note that the firm bills time in 6 minute increments, so, for example, .1= 6 minutes, .5=30 minutes, and 1.0=one hour, and so on. Time that cannot be billed to a specific client must be documented on the time sheet as non-billable time, listing “Wright & Honour, LLP” as the client. Make sure that your time accurately represents the tasks and specific time actually spent on each task throughout the day!
