Start with the written agreement you have with the lawyer.
Even if the agreement allows for the full fee to be paid, perhaps it's something the lawyer might be willing to negotiate based on the actual work performed. No harm in asking.

Part of the bottom line to Mr. Faulkner is that you may well have received the right characterization.

I was separated from the Navy for depression, just before I left I was told that I am able to re-enlist if I want to in the future. What type of discharge would this be qualified as? It's been 10 years and I do not have a copy of my dd214 anymore.
You discharge reasons and "quality" are on the DD214 you would have received at the time of separation.
You can apply to the Navy Board for Correction of Records, but keep in mind you are past the three year statute of limitations so have to have good reason for the delay.
If the discharge was less than honorable you can apply to the Navy Discharge Review Board, which has a 15 years statute of limitations.See question
