What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? California
I hired an attorney to represent me in a guardianship case.
We went to court once, and I elected not to pursue the case. The attorney went to court on my behalf and ended the case. That was in August 2008....
Fast forward to April 2009-I called the office and asked for a final bill. Never received one. On July 31, 2009, I sent a certified letter to the attorney requesting a final bill and a refund of the remaining retainer.
To date, I have not received any correspondence back from the attorney. I really just want to get the final bill; although I am curious how much of the retainer was used. I would imagine that if I owed money, I would certainly have received that bill!!!
I was going to give it 30 days-and then send another letter. After that, is it necessary to contact the CA State Bar? I'm not sure what to do after that...
Thanks for any assistance!
