Lawyers are scared of anything that reduced billable hours because they have built an entire business model of paying for time spent, for effort, not for results.
Lawyering should be an intellectual task with a defined outcome, not a repetitive task. Lawyers should be paid for the benefit they bring, not how hard it was. Remember the old consultancy joke:
A client has a very complex machine that does not work. A consultant is called in, and he looks at the machine for a few minutes, and draws a cross on it in chalk, saying "Hit it here with a sledgehammer". A worker hits the machine with a sledgehammer and it functions perfectly thereafter.
The consultant sends his bill to the client: "Consultancy on machine repair: $50000".
The client angrily rejects this, demanding a breakdown of the work done to justify the preposterous consultancy fee.
The consultant responds with "Placing chalk cross on machine: $5 Knowing where to place the cross: $49995".
Lawyers are trying to provide a justification for their fees that is not "Because I am smart and know the law" when that is why you are hiring them. You should not be paying extra for people to do mechanical tasks.
Good lawyers should come out well. Legal assistance, paralegals, secretaries, etc will come out badly. Re-think taking that "paralegal training degree" at degree mills like the University of Phoenix - it will be even more useless in future than it is now.
