Can I sue my lawyer for over charging? Yes. You should require your attorney provide you
with a written fee agreement prior to hiring the attorney. As a Chicago Legal
Malpractice Attorney, I’ve seen many cases where the charges are inconsistent with an
Request that your lawyer provide an explanation for the charges, and correction of
any errors. If you continue to feel unsatisfied, contact the state bar association. Some bar
associations offer free arbitration services for settling attorney/ client disputes. If the fee
dispute remains unresolved, you may want to pursue a legal malpractice action
against the attorney based upon fraud, breach of contract, or other theories of liability.
