My mom hired an elder car lawyer right after my dad's 3rd stroke when she was told he was now a quadriplegic and bed ridden. She wanted help assuming she would need to apply for Medicaid and be made legal POA. She paid the lawyer $8,000 up front, which was the full fee for both services. Since then, all the work has been on my mom. She's been spending hours obtaining documents, going to the court house for documents, filling out piles of papers for the lawyer and spending money sending the lawyer piles of documents certified mail. Seems like the lawyer has done nothing except call my mom and ask for more documents. The POA portion of this has been completed, but my mom decided to bring my dad home and take care of him herself since there were #1) no nursing home beds available and #2) selling her house to qualify for Medicaid was not possible. So the Medicaid part of this is no longer needed. She would like to get a refund from the lawyer for Medicaid services not rendered. The lawyer has not done much on that front anyway except ask my mom for documents and sit on there tail waiting for it. Can my mom reasonably expect to be refunded part of her $8,000?? Thanks.
