non refundable retainer fee
We gave an attorney a non-refundable retainer fee 10/2005 of $10,000. Contract read that it would get us through two estate hearings. No communication from atty. despite attempts. Has met 1 time since then and promised a letter one month ago. Still no communication. Has not requested hearing. No updates. No showing of work done or expenses charged. We do not know status of case. Does not return calls or respond to letters. Can we get our $10,000 back? House devalues as we wait.
