If you think your lawyer's bill contains an error or something you didn't agree to, contact the lawyer immediately and try to resolve the discrepancy. But, if your lawyer's bill is accurate, but you just cannot afford to pay it, contact your lawyer to see if you can make arrangements to pay over time or agree on some other accommodation (e.g., asking your lawyer to postpone work temporarily until you can get the bill lower). However, if you cannot reach an agreement about how to handle the problem, the lawyer may be entitled to stop working on your matter or withdraw as your lawyer.
