Only $1,500 Awarded Due To Lack Of Detail.
I think we can say with confidence that Achterkirchen v. Montiel, Case No. A147386 (1st Dist., Div. 2 Mar. 28, 2017) (unpublished) demonstrates what a fee claimant should not do as far as submitting substantiation for a fee petition. There, the requesting party sought an undentified amount for appellate work plus $4,000 for "fees on fees." There was no information on the nature of the appellate work, the attorneys involved, or the attorneys' hourly rates. The trial judge only awarded $1,500 for "fees on fees" based on a lack of detail. The appellate court agreed—affirmed, basic reason: "too skimpy."
