NALFA hosts a podcast series on attorney fee issues. In a special podcast, "NALFA Podcast No. 6: NALFA Honors Bruce R. Meckler", NALFA honors the work and legacy of founding member Bruce R. Meckler. Hosted by Terry Jesse, NALFA Executive Director, the podcast shares thoughts and memories from his peers and fellow NALFA members. The podcast also reflects on how Bruce helped shape the legal fee analysis profession.
Bruce Meckler passed away in November 2016. Meckler grew up in Maryland and attended Bradley University in Peoria and John Marshall Law School in Chicago. He began his legal career as a prosecutor in the Cook County State Attorney's Office then went to Pope & John before co-founding the firm that merged with Philadelphia-based Cozen O'Connor. He served on the management committee and national board of directors at Cozen O'Connor. He conducted more than 500 legal bill audits involving more than $5 billion in legal fees.
“Bruce Meckler was one of the pioneers of legal fee analysis and one of the nation’s top attorney fee experts. At NALFA, we want to honor that legacy. He was widely respected by his peers and colleagues from across the legal fee analysis field. As one of the founding members of NALFA, Bruce not only supported our CLE programs, but he helped shape and establish our Best Practices in Legal Fee Analysis, the professional standards of legal fee analysis," said Terry Jesse.
