Can I dispute my attorney’s bill?

Recently divorced. Signed a contract with my attorney that she would bill me immediately and regularly if I went above my retainer. 2 months after the divorce, I received my only bill for $3200 above the retainer. I also have found many discrepancies in my bill that I can substantiate. Do I have any recourse?

If you can't resolve the matter with the attorney, you can contact the State Bar which may have fee arbitration to try to resolve the issue.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
