It is very simple, pay the legitimate legal dues and get a no due certificate and engage an another advocate.

Assuming that majority of Lawyers are upright citizens the queries below are in case there is an exception to teh above assumption
What is the measurement of Legitimate Fee of a Lawyer?
Laywers mostly never issue reciepts for the payments recieved by them so how does one prove that he had paid to the lawyer?
Since there is normally not any agreement between a client and teh Lawyer, how does any dispute between a lawyer and a client get resolved?
Does it summarise to that in order to buy peace the client has no option but to succumb to the legitimate or illegitimae demands of a Lawyer/

This is alway sthe problem. Pay by cheque, insist on a receipt and upfront agree the costs - in great detail.
If he is not giving a release and demanding more money that what was agreed, go an make a complaint against him at the bar council.
Lawyers who treat their hapless clients like they are a money-tap, give the rest of us a bad name.

Actually I am a Social Worker and try to help out people trapped in situations where our Institutions have no or very costly solution to the problems faced by masses
Here also it is a case of a hapless widow who had to sell here property to pay the lawyer but she has no reciept of even a single penny!
