I was planning on getting a divorce. I hired a lawyer and gave him a retainer fee of $2,500. However, a couple of days later I told him I changed my mind my husband and I have been married a long time and we are going to try and work it out. He told me this happens all of the time. He said he didnít file anything and he suggested I wait and he would hold my retainer. He said if after a few months I still didnít want the divorce he would give me my retainer back. After a few months I was not going to get divorced and I asked for my money back. I had to call him several times and I even went to his office. He told me he would only return $500. This was ridiculous. He didnít work on the case at all. I could understand if he needed to keep $300 but even that is too much. His consultation was free and he didnít do anything with the case. I was going to file a small claims lawsuit but I am worried he will just know how to work the system and I will be given the run around. I would have to do this pro se because I donít have the money to hire another lawyer. Do I have a case and can he keep filing something to prolong the case in hopes I will give up?
