Non-Refundable Fee Must Be In Writing In Tennessee

The Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility has issued a public censure who represented a client charged with criminal offenses. The attorney charged a non-refundable fee of $9,000 but did not put the agreement in writing. When the client discharged the attorney and sought a refund of a portion of the fee, the attorney refused.

The board stated that, since January 1, 2011, non-refundable fee agreements must be in writing. (Mike Frisch)
