My question relates to legal practice in the state of: Virginia
The lawyer that I hired told me that she will be representing me at a General District Court and at a Circuit Court. She asked for a flat fee of $2500 each. She accepted the check for $5000, but didnít sign a contract with me.
Later she sent me a representation confirmation letter where she states that retainer is not refundable. The letter is not clarifying what kind of services I will be provided.
I feel like something is wrong here. What should I do? Should I ask her to sign a contract with me ASAP?
