Legal Question in DUI Law in California

I hired a lawyer to fight a dui case for me and he lost. He did not provide great service and was never there to answer questions for me, I was unsatisfied with his service. We never signed a legal document. Am I obligated by the law to pay for his services? Can he sue me for this?

An attorney client relationship is created only upon execution of an engagement letter or retainer agreement hiring me or my firm.
