Legal Question in Aviation Law in California

attorney's bridge of contract

My attorney sent me a bill for $12,000. I had no idea I owed him this amount. The contract we signed clearly states that ''Lawfirm will notify client whenever the remaining balance of any deposit applied to attorney's fees incurred by Client, is less than $1,000 or less. Within 10 days after each notification is mailed, Client will pay to Lawfirm an additional deposit in the same amount as the initial one ($8,500). I received a bill from him on 1/8/08 for $1,200. A week later I received a correction of my balance of $12,000.

Re: attorney's bridge of contract

Go discuss it with him. If there remains a legitimate dispute, contact the local bar association for fee arbitration.
