Legal Question

Asked on: 6/20/11, 4:20 pm

In NYS. I paid a $400 retainer to a lawyer for a traffic summons. No cancellation policy disclosed or fees upfront. I cancelled one week after payment to credit card. Lawyer charged me $100 cancellation fee for "work performed". I made a complaint to the BBB and credit card company. He insists that I owe him this money no matter how excessive, 25% payment for 0.01% work completed. He said it would take 1.5 year. Seems illegal and unethical to me.
