It wouldn't be great to have a pile of evidenced work and for a curmudgeonly client to have gotten it completely wrong.
Your right, costs are hard to determine in most cases, but this does not prevent and is required.......to provide in writing how much an hour, and other regular charges. Using the "its hard to determine would not suffice" In my view, I think some solicitors take clients for dimwits.
The law is clear, but some solicitors dont adhere to it, build up the costs and file, and then say,,,hey where is my money, no money, no file.
