I received a verdict that was overturned on appeal. The court, while granting the appeal, stated that it would consider awarding attorney’s fees on my behalf after the case was reheard.
At the end of the case, my attorney would not petition the court for payment of attorney’s fees and he is now suing me for the balance of the money I owe him.
Won’t his actions prohibit him from collecting his fees because of his failure to petition the court for their payment?
Thanks for your help.
