A: A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. However, ANY attorney would need to know more (such as the terms of your retainer agreement, and other possible agreements/amendments) before offering input regarding attorney fees on your case. If your case involved additional work that was agreed upon, such as preparation and prosecution beyond the state trial court level, that could be a reason for higher attorney fees. Escalation of litigation sometimes also introduces specialist attorneys in some instances, if agreed upon. But that's only general speculation - one would really need to see your file, including agreements and communications. Good luck
