If I myself dismissed attorney are there fees that I might be responsible for? Can I have a copy of my file furnished by attorney ? Hours billed? or flat fee for services?
Workers' Compensation Lawyer
To the extent that your former attorney performed valuable services, you can't get out of paying an attorney's fee by filing a dismissal form. How much of a fee will be something that you will either negotiate with the attorney, or will be decided by a judge based on the amount of work done and the results achieved. You are the legal owner of your file. Your former attorney is entitled to keep a copy of it, but the file belongs to you.
