i retained a lawyer a year ago for $5000. other than coach me on the questions the grand jury would be asking me, i ve gotten 3 letters of correspondence on my case from him, maybe 6 phone conversations also. ive received an application and order of dismisal of charges and arrest warrant from iowa district court for the county in which i live pursuant to rule 2.33(1) submitted by the county atty for reasons:to allow law enforcement to continue with the investigation to better prosecute the case. my question is do i still need representation since charges have been dropped or can i dismiss his services and insist on a itemized bill of his services hes provided thus far and insist on recovering the remainder of the monies i put up front for his minimal services put towards my case??
