The prosecutor’s office records indicate that the lawyer had initiated criminal proceedings against his client, whose defense he had agreed to defend. He said they had agreed to pay a fee of Dh25,000 in the event that the judgment was given in favor of his client.
According to their contract, the lawyer defended his client in the court of first instance. Since the judgment was not in his client’s favor, he appealed the judgment to the Supreme Court. However, the decision of the court was consistent with the previous decision.
When the lawyer asked his client to pay his fees, the defendant refused, blaming the lawyer for the failure of his case.
Since the plaintiff was unable to reach an agreement with the defendant, he was forced to file a lawsuit against his client.
The court ruled in his favor and ordered the defendant to pay the attorney a fee of Dh 10,000.
