Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Do you have any evidence of the original flat fee, such as an email or receipt marked "paid in full"?
Are you online with me?
Thank you for the additional information.
An oral fee agreement is enforceable, but it is more difficult to to prove the terms.
You can demand the attorney comply with the flat fee agreemet and, if refused, you can file a disciplinary compliant with the state bar.
