Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Sorry to hear this.
I would suggest that you lodge a formal complaint about the way your matter was handled and offer to pay what you think is reasonable.
The firm should have a complaints policy which you may ask for.
If they do not resolve the fees to your satisfaction, you may complain further to the Legal Ombudsman https://www.legalombudsman.org.uk/
All the best. Please leave a positive rating.
