Our family quoted a local attorney for what it would cost for a very serious charge (rape). The lawyer told us what his retainer would be (2,000) and then said if we went to trial it would cost between $4,000 to $6,000. Jury trial is still two months away and we've already reached six grand without the expert witnesses. We have not signed the fee agreement he keeps shoving in our face. My beleief is that he never thought we would actually go to trial, but regardless if he had told us it would cost double this we would've shopped around. Do we have any legal ground to stand on as far as the charges that continue to accrue when we were already given a grand total??
