the answer is that it depends on the circumstances. The nuances vary by state, but generally, an attorney is prohibited from entering into an agreement for, charging, or collecting an illegal or unconscionable fee. The unconscionability of a fee is ordinarily determined on the basis of all the facts and circumstances existing at the time the agreement is entered into except where the parties contemplate that the fee will be affected by later events. Factors that are considered in determining the conscionability of a fee typically include things like the amount of the fee in proportion to the value of the services performed and the amount involved and the results obtained.


If the fee that the immigration law firm collected is unconscionable, consider contacting your state's bar association to file a complaint. Best of luck.
