Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The only citation is the NC Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 1.5, which says the attorney can only charge fees that are reasonable based on the work actually done on the case and what is reasonable is based on the attorney's experience and complexity of the case.
