My lawyer always asks for money says I owe him more, but never sends a bill. Can I report him? Or is this practice accepted?

He can't ask for money he's not entitled to and put it in writing, can he? Sending bogus bills through the mail is a federal crime. I would be suspect...tell him to send you a complete statement, with a break down of all past and present charges, and what they were for. Tell him you want a statement done with a formal bill everytime. Send it to him in writing via certified mail. I bet you're looking for a new ligit attorney soon...

If it sounds fishy and your gut feeling is telling you something's fishy, research on it. See if they really got the accurate business Liscence or go ahead and report it

The Rules of Professional Conduct require lawyers to provide their clients with an itemized bill for all services rendered. It's illegal for a lawyer to just ask for money.

He needs to give you an itemized bill. What do you need a lawyer for?

If he wants further money for your appeal it is because it will require more time and paperwork. What he billed in the past was for past work paid for the past. Who do you know who works now for a paycheck they received 2 years ago?
