I recently sought legal advice over a contract being terminated. I gave all the information I had already researched to the lawyer. She told me she didn't know about business or commercial law but she would give me a quote for her to research the matter. I then received an $800 invoice for a 20 minute consultation and a letter telling me what I had already researched myself. I questioned the invoice saying I was promised a quote first but they are persisting saying $800 is a modest fee for an initial consultation. Can I dispute a charge from a solicitor? Where do I go to address this lawyer behaviour? I hope you can help me as they are threatening my credit rating now with taking me to court and saying that the bill will end up as $2000 with all their admin fees, court charges, etc.
