Your best bet is to go to Fee Arbitration. It goes before a Panel of Two attorneys and one lay person. You can present proofs to them and they determine what is a fair amount of a fee. He can say his balance is anything he wants, but he will have to justify it to the Panel. Filing with Etics will not get you a lower bill, only fee arb. Ethics will actually bounce your case if they realize it is about fees to the Fee Arb Team.
