I am sorry to hear this;both oral and written contracts are legally binding but with oral contracts it is usually a proof/evidence issue; however copies of court transcripts or witness' statements (affidavits) can help prove the oral contract existed.

An attorney is expected to act with integrity and if there is a fee dispute or other issue the client can file a complaint here:

Also, the client can sue for damages in small claims-information here

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
