My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Michigan
Good Morning, I am wondering about an attorney bill I incurred yesterday. I talked to this local attorney in his office for 30min one day last week. I brought him all the paper work I have on this "easement issue." There was little or no foot work that had to be done as I have extensive paper work covering everything.
When I got to his office yesterday to pick up my paper work, there was a bill for 250 dollars. He had bill for 1hr and 15min at 200 an hour.
This attorney told me one day after looking everything over that all the power was on my side and that it should be easy to get the corner of my property back from the squatters. The next day he said "Nope, prescribed easement." Like a legal squatters rights thing. Really sad.
So, I went there with one problem , now I have 2. I don't agree with this bill as there was nothing mentioned about fees or being on the clock until I show up to pick up all the paperwork I have on it and there is a piece of paper sitting there with 250.00 due on it. ??? I initially didn't question it but as I got home and thought about it , that can't be right , ?? Is it ?? Don't attorneys tell you up front their costs and when you are on the clock ????
