Customer Question

a client asks for his file to be picked from his old lawyer, I called the other lawyer and he said something like his fees have to be protected but sent the files anyway, I didn't say anything about what he said about his fees. He couriered the files but with an invoice of 8000.00 what shall I do?

If you challenge the fee you can get this reviewed by the Law Society. This can be done through their complaints service which you can find at http://www.lawsociety.org.nz/for-the-community/lawyers-complaints-service. That site has the contact details so you can raise any issues about the fee and the service. Is that what you need?
