Regarding fees charged by lawyer


My father hired an advocate for cases related to property in 2010. The advocate has now been appointed as judge and has left the cases. He charged Rs.67000 as fees when he was hired. Now he told us to hire another advocate and refused to refund any amount. My father passed away last year. We feel that he is taking advantage of the fact that we are not much familiar with legal procedures and legal knowledge. What should we do now?

Ask his Junior Advocates to do your case, if they are perfect as of you. Or else give the brief to another advocate of your choice. But it is not correct to argue with him.

Pursue and persist.

There are gentlemen that would arrange another competent lawyer or agree to refund on pro rated basis.

Thanks. Sir, What is 'pro rated basis'? What should we say to convince him to refund on pro rated basis?

The fee was probably charged till the judgment is passed.

How much work has been done till date and at what stage now the case is etc.

 

The new lawyer that you will hire can also guide you.

 

Remain gentle, amiable, and convince.
