Fee Arbitration Committee
At no cost to lawyers or former clients, this Committee resolves disputes involving the amount or reasonableness of attorney fees and/or costs charged or to be charged by the lawyer for professional services for the benefit of the former client. Decisions of the Committee are binding upon the parties by reason of the agreement of the parties and may be enforced by subsequent court action. The arguments of the lawyer and former client are received by an Investigator selected by and from the Committee members. The Investigator interviews the parties and summarizes their positions and presents those positions to the Committee in a closed hearing that is not open to the public or the parties. Committee decisions are made by majority vote of a quorum of at least 12 persons including both attorneys and non-attorneys. This Committee does not resolve client grievances.
READ THE FORM CAREFULLY AND COMPLETELY. FEE ARBITRATION IS A VOLUNTARY PROCESS ONLY.
