Dispute over Legal Fees
If you dispute the fees paid to or charged by your lawyer and you attempted to resolve the dispute without success, you may submit a fee dispute petition to the Lawyer-Client Fee Dispute Resolution Committee. There is no cost to submit a petition.
If the Committee decides your dispute is appropriate for arbitration, an informal hearing will be scheduled to determine the reasonable value of the lawyer's services. The arbitration panel's decision is binding and enforceable in court.
