Attorney's flat fee
I have agreed and paid an attorney a fixed amount for sponsoring my brother from a foreign country. This attorney is now giving me a run around and it has been impossible to get in touch with him. I paid another attorney who specialized in this field, had him checked out my case and he said nothing has been done. My questions:
1- Can I fire the first attorney and get at least some money back? If so, how?
2- I was advised that it is not legal for any attorney to charge a flat fee in the state of california, is this true?
