Fee Disputes

If you and your lawyer have not thoroughly discussed how much your case will cost, you may not know what to expect on your lawyer’s statement of account. If you feel that your lawyer’s fees are too high or incorrect and you cannot resolve this with your lawyer, you can ask the Prothonotary at the Charlottetown Courthouse to review it. The Society cannot assist with disputes about your lawyer’s fees. The Prothonotary has the authority to reduce the account in appropriate circumstances.
