Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
The contract I signed with the attorney did not allow her to do this. Can I demand she release my money? I put a $2000 retainer down on the divorce proceedings and my attorney, never sent me a statement showing the charges on my account. When the divorce became final my attorney told me I had a $6,900 bill I would have to pay before any of the money from the house would be released. So I paid her the remaining money. I am going to lodge a complaint with the bar association about her but right now I just want my money.
