Small Firm Attorney not Entitled to Same Fee as Big Firm Attorney
Would you sacrifice six weeks of revenue for six years and instead, spend those six weeks toiling pro bono for a snowball’s chance in hell of victory before the United States Supreme Court? Small firm lawyer Alan Gura did.

It seems that there is a caste system in some parts of our legal system.  This decision seems to suggest that a hard-working attorney in a small law firm is not entitled to the same compensation as typically allowed for attorneys in large law firms in cases where excellent results are achieved.
