your entire relationship with your lawyer is governed by the retainer agreement which you signed.

your atty would typically get all his expenses back (right off the top of the total sum), if he incurred any, and then the two of you would split the remaining sum, whichever way you agreed to (he would get anywhere from 25-33%).
