1 Extra on top of Attorney's fee on Tue Feb 25, 2014 9:14 am


Arresto Menor
Hello, need you advice once again.

We sold a piece property left behind by may late dad. In the process, we hired a broker and a lawyer. The broker offered his services not just for the selling of the property, but also for the processing of the estate tax.

We paid the lawyer upfront. Through the course of the sale, we met around 2 or 3 times with him and the broker. He made sure all papers were in order and none worked against our interests. I believe he did his job well.

Now that the property is sold, he sent feelers that we give him a little more extra. Honestly, I was a bit taken aback and wasn't expecting it, knowing he was fully paid already upfront.

Is this "standard" practice? Will I be remiss if I don't give him something more on top of the Attorney's fee? What are the implications of I don't give him this extra?
