That evil monster that will quietly eat up your gross collections until nothing is left for you to take home. It’s so dangerous because it’s often invisible. You get peeks of the overhead monster when you see a stack of bills on your desk or somehow lose money doing a case. In this course we’ll expose your overhead wherever it’s hiding, develop systems to keep it in check, and suggest a method for evaluating fees.
