Disputing Legal Fees:

Overview FAQs Articles Locations

Professional negligence against a solicitor or lawyer is a serious matter. Legal practitioners have specific obligations under the Legal Professions Act in respect of their billing practices. Unethical conduct in relation to fees is not taken lightly by the Legal Services Commissioner. Assessment of fees is available at the Supreme Court and is a matter of right for clients of legal practitioners. It must be said however that these rights have limitation periods and if a client believes that he has been overcharged, or if there is some perceived anomaly with the bill, action should be taken as soon as practically possible.

A solicitor who has been accused of professional negligence should not treat the allegation lightly. A liability in defamation law may also arise when an individual makes such accusations. This can have very serious consequences (see our section on “Defamation” for more details). Essentially, whether a person is an accused lawyer or a person accusing the lawyer, legal assistance should be obtained so that the matter does not develop into a complex and risky affair.

If you require assistance with dispute involving legal fees, you may wish to contact our office by telelphone on (02) 9233 4048 or email us at info@navado.com.au and make an appointment to see one of our solicitors in our Sydney office. By appointment, we can also make a time for you to see one of our lawyers in one of our branch offices. Please peruse our "Locations"  tab for a complete list of our branch offices.
