Legal Fee Disputes Attorney Serving New York City
The feelings of frustration and confusion that surround the legal process can quickly escalate into disputes around fees and billing. If you have questions or concerns regarding fees, it is wise to contact an experienced attorney to learn more about your options.
At The Law Office of Krim & Krim, P.C., we hear several different types of questions about legal billing, including:
Were these charges padded by unnecessary billing?
Did my lawyer charge an amount that was unethical?
How long should a process take compared to how much I was billed for?
Call to Schedule a Free Initial Consultation
We have an in-depth understanding of the legal billing process and we can examine a client's records to make a proper determination if there was inaccurate billing. We can tell if your lawyer was spending more time on tasks than is reasonably needed. It is possible that you were overcharged, and we will work to reduce the bill to a reasonable amount, if anything.
We can also look to see if there are technical defects in your fee agreement. Items such as a release or a waiver of the ability to challenge fees might exist. We will help you navigate your paperwork and advise you on the best course of action.
Defending a Fee Dispute
As in any disagreement, fee disputes have two sides. We also have experience defending clients against lawyers seeking payment of fees. In many situations, a client can feel as if the attorney did not perform in a satisfactory manner. As a response, the client might decide to withhold payment of the attorney's fees. The lawyer has the option to sue the client for payment of fees. If you are being sued to pay legal fees that you believe you do not owe, contact our firm for a free consultation.
