Nicole Auerbach is one of the adventurous Big Firm refugees that founded Valorem, a genuine "Alternative Billing Arrangements" firm. Here’s a quote from Nicole’s bio:
The billable hour is an antiquated, inefficient and a potentially unethical measure of value provided.
To be named one of the Top 50 Women Lawyers in Illinois in the 2010 edition of Illinois Super Lawyers, Nicole was evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, including verdicts, settlements, representative clients, honors and awards, and other achievements.
So the quality of the best alternate fee firm is unassailable and Nicole’s objective recognition makes her a safe choice in addition to being a wise choice.
BRAVO Nicole – BRAVO Valorem !
Disclosure: I proudly sit on Valorem’s Advisory Board because I believe in what the firm is trying to achieve.
