We paid attorney up-front to an agreed to amount based on services that included going to trial and estimated witness costs. We did agree to pay for additional cost if original payment was exhausted. The case lasted 14 months after agreement. We NEVER were told we exhausted our original funds, nor did we EVER receive any billing statements along the way. Now, we just got a final bill that requires 85% more than our original agreed to amount.
