More facts would be required to analyze this situation.
Attorney fee agreements in which it is foreseeable that the costs and fees to the client will exceed $1,000.00 are required to be in writing. There are several exceptions to this rule, and it is not clear from your post whether you meet those exceptions. (Bus. & Prof. Code, sect. 6148.) http://law.onecle.com/california/business/6148.html
