What is the statue of limitations on being able to bill someone?
I employed an attorney in California. from April of 2000 until Nov of 2005 at which time her services were terminated and I received a final billing showing I no longer owed her money. In October 2006 she said I owe her $9,120.53 for work she did in 2000, 2001, 2002 and a part of 2003 that services that she never to bill me for until now. All other work was performed one week and billed within 1 to 3 weeks. Is it legal for her to submit bills for work that she is now claiming 6 years later? To be clear we are not talking about collection but rather never submitting a bill for six years on some and over three years on the most recent.
