Hello, this is MarcInLaw and welcome to JustAnswer. I will be the lawyer working with you today and I will be happy to advise you to the extent possible on this platform. I will review your question and I will be back with my answer shortly. You will get notified when my answer is ready therefore there is no need to wait online. You will have a chance to request a call. You will see an automatic prompt. Please feel free to request it but do not feel obliged to do so. Please do note that my response is not instantaneous but I will always aim to get back to you on the same day with my answer, or request more information, if appropriate. Lastly, please note that our discussion on this site is for general information purposes only and do not replace any legal advice you might need, and does not create a lawyer-client relationship. Thank you for your patience whilst waiting for my answer.
I am sorry to hear about this. Can you please let me know if you have any email/letter confirming the fixed price arrangement?
Good. Then you can simply dispute the invoice on the basis of your agreement and inform that you may involve the SRA https://www.sra.org.uk/consumers/problems/report-solicitor/
He is entitled to charge for his time, but again, £400 seems a bit stretchy.
No problem. I hope all goes well. Many thanks for using our service.
