Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am a solicitor.
Sorry to hear this.
Did you enter into an agreement with this client? Verbal or written?
You may write to him that the work has been done and you are entitled to claim fees under the legal principle known as "quantum meruit" (the amount deserved) even if there was no agreement that the money was not refundable and as such, he is not entitled to a refund and that you will defend any claim that he brings against you.
You may read up more on quantum meruit here: https://www.walkermorris.co.uk/publications/disputes-matter-spring-summer-2019/a-quantum-meruit-a-remedy-for-risk-takers/
All the best
You are welcome. Good luck
