Filing a Complaint
Can my attorney require me to participate in mandatory fee arbitration?
The program is generally designed for a client to be able to require their attorney to participate in fee arbitration. However, an attorney may require the client to participate if the client and attorney have a signed agreement to submit fee disputes to a mandatory fee arbitration program. Any agreement that requires binding arbitration, however, will not be enforced against you by the program, and you will not be required to participate in mandatory fee arbitration.
