Legal Question

Asked on: 1/17/12, 11:05 pm

I was referred to an attorney through a referral service from my employer. As a customer of this referral service I was to get 25% off of my hourly rate from the attorney. After all the billing and payments were made and case concluded. I realized that I did not receive the 25% discount off my billing. I brought this to my attorneys attention, and my attorney realized that not only was I not given my 25% off. My Attorney realized that all my invoices were billed incorrectly due to a problem in there billing systems. My attorney then re did my entire bill (which resulted in much higher fees), deducted 25% off of the new amount, and is attempting to give me a refund. Is this an ethical practice? Would fee arbitration be a waste of time?
