Did a Lawyer Overcharge You? Did Another Professional's Negligence Result in Losses to You?

Just as a doctor owes a patient a standard of care acceptable to other members of the medical profession, so, too, does an attorney owe a standard of care to clients. You as a client deserved counsel and representation rising to an acceptable standard. You also had the right to a fair fee arrangement. You can sue a lawyer for charging you too much or taking a retainer and not delivering services as promised.

Are You Involved in a Conflict Over Legal Fees With Your Attorney?

One key aspect of an expected standard of care in law practice is honesty and transparency over legal fees. You had the right to know before retaining your lawyer or law firm how fees would be determined in terms of one or more of the following:

  • Hourly rates
  • Contingency fee percentages
  • Flat fees
  • Retainers

When you paid or agreed to pay legal fees by one of these methods, you expected to see appropriate value delivered for the money. When this did not happen and a direct complaint to the attorney did not straighten out injustices, you as the client may have cause to file a legal malpractice claim or lawsuit.
