What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? CALIFORNIA
We hired this lawyer to fight my dad's case. He responded to email/questions i asked but didnt have to do anything in this case because my dad got alternative program by the DA and case got closed. The lawyer wont refund even a portion of the flat fee or the extra money he charged for closing down the case/file. The case is already closed. Moreover he never updated anything to us, i always kept him up to date with whatever happened with the case/case worker. I believe i am entitled to a refund of the fee, if not entirely, a portion of it. I was very naive and didnt know about this web! he had us believed that the case would go to court and he would have to represent. as my dad was a first time offender, he got the diversion class and community service. i have 2 small kids to take care of and on limited budget. I dont know how to get some of my hard earned money back. please help.
