I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Can you tell me a little about your situation? What questions do you have?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Our lawyer charged us 33% of proceeds from our case in sewing Iraq. The Statue by the Department of Justice states that any agreement with a lawyer exceeding 10% is void and unlawful. I contacted the lawyer and he claimed that the Statue does not apply to our case. Whom should I contact to appeal the fees?

Thank you. I'm afraid this is beyond my experience, so I'm going to opt out and let you talk to someone who has worked on these types of cases. Good luck, and I apologize for the inconvenience.
