Legal Question

Asked on: 8/10/12, 3:34 pm

Can I sue an attorney for charging more in fees than the amount of my claim? My claim was for $4,000 and I have now paid them over $7,000. Missouri has a statute (Rule 1.5 stating ... "lawyer shall not ... charge an unreasonable fee ... factors to be considered include ... amount involved and the results obtained." This is not good practice but is it illegal? thanks, Tim
