Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
are you asking about controlling your own lawyer fees?
The lawyer fees should be subject to an engagement agreement. Lawyer should issue invoices showing time, rate and hours worked, and service performed. You can direct lawyer not to do work you didnt authorize and contest fees you deem unreasonable. Most lawyers will compromise the bill in this situation not wanting to risk being sued.
Let me know if that is clear, thanks.
Kindly rate me positively.
