Decision on Reasonable Attorney's Fees

In PATLA news, there is a link to a Decision of WCJ Eric Jones, posted, I think, for the proposition that a reasonable attorney's fee for eminent Claimant's Counsel in Pittsburgh is $250.00 per hour for a senior partner and $200.00 per hour for his mid-level partner or associate. Judge Jones made an unreasonable contest attorneys' fee award. The Decision and Order sets forth his usual detailed and complete analysis of the considerations in awarding these rates.
