Question: Are we able to charge the previous owner the attorney fees that we are being charged from the letter he mailed to our attorney without our awareness?
Question Detail: If the previous owner of our company mails a letter to our attorney in regards to our business agreement and our attorney charges us for the receipt of the letter and reviewing it.
Answer: You hired him, haven’t discharged him, he did the work you hired him to do and now you don’t want to pay him? Really? You’re serious? You are seriously asking me this question? Oh boy what would Phil Dunphey say?
If he's still your attorney why wouldn't you pay him for the work you hired him to do? Beyond that I can't think of any reason why, if not discharged, he would not be doing what you hired him to do and getting paid to do it. Can you?
