If the lawyer charged me 400 dollars to make some paperwork for a property and then just cause I finished paying it in less than a year she wants to charge me another 250.oo is that right? or is she trying to scam me? she took a whole month to give me paperwork but yet she doesnt want to give me a discount, then when I see the paperwork i noticed she made some mistakes and I told her about it and she asked me to return the papers to her so she can fix her errors and now I got to wait some more. It was only two pages and she took forever! What should I do?

  • is there a written agreement or interest included with your fees? like other person said, get a second opinion or call the bar association.

  • Is she charging you per hour? I know the couple of times I used a lawyer, I was required to pay a retaining fee and when that money was "used" up, I had to pay more.

  • Lawyer fees around here are by the hour,175.00 for some.Each page of work they do is a charge too.If you took longer to pay than first agreed,yep you will pay more.They add intrest and other charges too.

  • i didnt take long to pay infact i paid nefore the paperwork was even made! and it was only two pages which she didnt even give me the pages till a month later the to top it off she made a big mistake! and I had to waste more gas in taking it back to her so she can fix it and now i gotta wait another month since she takes her sweet ass time!
