Dear Mr. Carpenter:

When we retained your services, the fee decided upon was $12,000.00 dollars to be paid in six equal installments. The head of my payroll department has informed that the invoice she received from your office states that we owe you a balance of $16,000.00 to be paid in six equal installments. As this is not what was agreed upon, we are withholding payment on the account until the situation is resolved. Please call us immediately and explain this discrepancy in the billing amount.

Yours Truly,

To Sanford & Blake Law Firm:

On July 19, 19–, Webster’s Winery retained your services concerning a land title dispute. At our initial meeting, you seem committed to our case, and assured us that you would give us your close attention.

Since that time, we have heard from you only twice, and the most detailed conversation was with the paralegal who works for Mr. Blake, rather than Mr. Blake himself.

We realize that lawyers are busy people, however, as we have paid you to retain your services, we do not feel it is unreasonable to expect you to also be busy with our case in addition to your others.

Please call us immediately. If we do not hear from you by Friday, we will retain another law firm to handle our case.

Sincerely,

Dear Mr. Cotter:

Today, during our pre-trial hearing, the lawyer assigned to the case became verbally abusive towards the attorney representing the prosecution. We learned later that these two attorneys have a disagreement of a personal nature.

While we can understand that personal dislikes occur between attorneys from time to time, we felt that it was most improper for them to be displayed during our court action. The attorney in question is there to represent Mr. Knighton, not himself.

We are not conversant with the legal technicalities involved in being assigned another lawyer at this point in time. Indeed, such an option may no longer be viable. If this is the case, we would suggest strongly that you advise our attorney to adopt a more professional demeanor while representing us, or else we will be forced to go elsewhere after this trial to have our legal needs met.

Sincerely,

Dear Ms. Baker:

Our litigation was scheduled to go to trial today at 2:30 p.m. However, the junior partner representing us never appeared. Needless to say, this caused the procedings to go less than smoothly.

To say that we are unhappy with this turn of events would be a drastic understatement. Please call our offices at once.

Sincerely,
