greedy lawyer


Dear Experts/ Lawyers,

Sometimes back, I submitted 10,000 cash to a lawyer for some legal work and emailed my documents. Rest 15,000 was to pay after service/work. Total fees was 25,000. I submitted and told lawyer that I will give date of proceedings bcz some points were not clear at my end. i kept the proceedings hold at my end. Finally, due to some reasons that purpose of that legal work had to be withdrawn and I asked for my money back which was 10,000. But lawyer is not refunding the amount. I asked the lawyer that you can take some amount like 1000 for the consultation and conversation I had over phone and rest refund to me. But the lawyer said the whole money, 10,000 he will not refund. 

Can anybody tell me that i should I do? Is not the lawyer becoming greedy. He did not do any efforts. Only I had telephonic conversation and sent my documents and money. After that nothing he had to do. But still not ready to refund my money. I have receipt of bank which I transfer the cast through.

Pls advise.

The question arises here as to how the effort of the advocate can be measured and the nature of work youhave not described here.

Dear Kapil Gupta Ji,

 

I said that I just emailed my documents and deposited money and I asked lawyer that he has to wait when i will give him date. i will confirm when he has to start proceedings. But i had to withdraw it and for that he is not refunding my money. Total agreed amount was 25,000 and 10,000 i paid in advance. But without any proceedings how can he keep my money!!!

Dear Balkrishan Ji

 

I am ready to pay amount for consultation/ conversation over phone. Does any such consultation cost rs. 10,000 ???? even an MBBS degree holder charges max rs,. 500 for consultation. But what about 10,000. Is he not betraying people like me by grabbing big amounts without any work? 

 

Shame on such work!!! Do not you think that any taken money without any hardwork/ efforts/ knowledge is called "Din Dahade Dhokha Dhadi"??

 

 

If you have any words which can help me in this regard, pls do that. Would be so thankful.

In the such  matter in which the image of profession and due amount of consultation etc

I think it is delibrtaed lacumae on professional body i.e. Bar Councils of having some standard parameter/norms of charges for handle cases and charges at difference stages of matter depend upon the standing of lawyers in profession etc both in the interest 0f Image of lawyers and Clients

 

I think some standard of practice, should be for  strict complaince by Legal professionals at least for image of professions, non complaince and no standard provide the facilities to miscreant/dishonest  professionals   though these cases are is an exception

Dear Ramesh Chand Ji,

I agree with your opinion!

Of course, some standard should be implemented on professionals practices. Particularly professionals like, Lawyers, Doctors, Consultants etc. Because, otherwise people like me and you would be in problem and our hard earned money goes in wrong hands this way.

Thanks

there is any drafting work too or not? consultatiom fee can not be fixed, its depend on the lawyer, some of lawyer are charging 10 lakh rupees as consultatiom fee too, its depend on the case and lawyer, so it will be better to settle the matter amicably.

I fully agree with Nadeem saheb, but point is that some modelity should be invoked at Bar council Level

so that people not get cheated / overcharged/not get service after apyment/refund for excess charged without work done fully by some unprofessional lawyer not concerned with thier ethics by that people shall have confident to approach Lawyer as per rating etc by bar council, it is be also in benefit of Lawyers

Thanks
