A: The good news is that all attorneys in Texas must provide the client with a Retainer in writing.

The retainer should state the amount of the fee and whether or not the fee is a flat fee, monthly fee or other kind of fee structure.

If you gave any attorney payment they must account for it upon request. So if you paid an attorney $7,500.00 you can demand a copy of your retainer. If not given to you, you can either ask the TX bar association to help you get your money or see a different lawyer, who is legitimate, and they can call or write the attorney to clear things up for you.

Good Luck!
