Doesn't a lawyer have to give a client an accounting of how(and to whom) the client's money has been spent??

Yes is the general rule. The exception is a fixed fee agreement. For example, if you agree to pay me $1,200 for a will, durable power of attorney, and advance health care directive, then the fee agreement and bill do not need to spell out exactly how much time was spent on each activity.
