What is the name of your state? New York
i asked my attorney for an itemized bill of the work he has done for me. it took him over a year to provide me with the bill itemized. then only reason this attorney provided me with the itemized listing is because i filled a fee disputed with the bar assoc. then the next day he emailed me the itemized bill. is this attorney in the wrong for waiting so long to provide me with the bill? also i found out in the bill that he over charged me $50 per hour. and it looks like he padded the bill. i asked this law firm to do work for me at $150 per hour. i found out they were charging me $280 per hour for this attorney to consult with a partner of the firm. so now a hour talk with my attorney was costing me $580 per hour. $150 per hour for talking with me and then another $150 per hour plus the $280 per hour to talk to the partner. they kept this from me until i saw the itemized bill.
is it legal to charge for consulting with partner. the attorney petitioned the court to have him removed from this case but will not give me my files so i can have another attorney finish the work. is there any recourse here . do i have to petition the court to get my files????What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state?
