Lawyers sue for “excessive” fees

One of my clients forwarded this story to me. It is quite scary to think that someone could be charged over R400 000 for what he is informed is a relatively “simple” divorce process. Irrespective of whether these fees are excessive in the circumstances (they certainly seem like a lot!), this case is a good example of why it is so important for attorneys to explain their fee structure up front and for clients to make sure they understand the fee structure and what the costs could be.
