Compensation of Administrator and Attorney Reduced by Half

The compensation of a lawyer who served as administrator of the estate, submitted a fee agreement to beneficiaries specifying compensation at an hourly rate, and kept hourly time records with specific descriptions of work was nevertheless reduced by more than half, from $11,165.65 to $5,165.65, when the amount originally billed was almost 75% of the estate and the estate was not complicated. Andrews Estate, 11 Fid.Rep.3d 15 (Monroe O.C. 2020).
