Holding Lawyers Accountable In Breach Of Fee Agreement Matters
Attorneys are required to memorialize their engagement with clients in almost every instance. The attorney-client fee agreement must contain certain information, including a description of the work the attorney is going to perform for the client. When lawyers fail to adequately perform their work for clients, they can be liable for breach of the fee agreement. This claim will often allow the client to seek reimbursement of fees paid to the lawyer, a remedy which is generally not available in a legal malpractice case. Klein & Wilson regularly represents clients suing their former lawyers for breach of their fee agreements in high stakes cases and has recovered millions of dollars for clients in these claims.
