Hello:

I can answer your first question quite easily. If the attorney did not do any work, he cannot collect his fee. Your best option would be to write him a letter and send it certified mail, explaining that you will not be paying his fee because he didn't do any work. If he presses the issue, you can open up a dispute with the Idaho state bar, or file a grievance against him. They can help you navigate this dispute with him. He could in theory send your bill to collections, but in general, given the high cost of doing so, for $800 I don't think it's likely.

In order to answer your other question, I'll need you to start a new question, as Just Answer's policy is one question per open question.
