Question & AnswerHow do I complain about my lawyer’s bill?
1. Talk to your lawyer
If you think your lawyer charged too much, you should talk to them first and try to resolve the problem before asking for an assessment. Most lawyers want to solve problems before they become complaints. You may be able to talk about ways to reduce your bill or agree to a payment plan.
If the lawyer works in a law firm with other lawyers, talk to a more senior person at the firm. For example, you could talk to a partner at the firm about your bill.
