Legal Question

Asked on: 3/18/10, 8:27 am

My mother's estate is readyto be closed. However, my attorney is now charging me $10,000 in addition to the $8,000 retainer I have already paid. I went before he Judge on an ex-parte motion and the judge suggested the attorney lower the fees a bit and put a lien on the properties (which are completely paid off.) The attorney adn I later met and he agreed to do this but advised he would not lower the fees and would give me two months to pay off the $10,000 in full or he will begin charging interest in the amount of 4%.

Is there any way I can move to close this estate or does it have to be my attorney and can I later challenge the fees.
