What is the Mandatory Fee Arbitration Program?
Clients have the right to have a neutral party - "an arbitrator" - hear fee disputes with their attorneys. The arbitrator determines whether the fees and costs charged by the attorney are reasonable for the services provided. The Mandatory Fee Arbitration Program provides an opportunity to have a volunteer arbitrator resolve attorney fee and cost disputes between clients and attorneys through an informal, low-cost alternative to the court system.
