  • Bill from Florida lawyer, dispute

    I filed a complaint with the Florida bar about the bill my lawyer send me.
    The Bar decided the bill was okay and declined to intrvene; but I still disagree, is there anything else I can do?

    We had agreed an approx max bill of 7500 dollars and the actual bill was 16,000 +, but he never once told me it was getting that high or I would of told him we have to stop or find some other solution.

    Help!!

    I wish to inform you that there is a arbitration option by Florida Bar. In this case you may contact Fee Arbitration Program Administrator, The Florida Bar for arbitration regarding attorneys fee. You may also file a lawsuit seeking court order for determining amount of fees due.

      Did you get a written fee agreement stating that you were being charged a flat fee of 7500?

      Or did you (like many I've seen) just not understand what a retainer is?
