Filing a Complaint
When do I receive the arbitration decision?
Unless the parties reach a settlement agreement, a decision (the "Findings and Award") will not be made at the hearing. Within the time set by the program, the arbitrator's Findings and Award will be mailed to you following the hearing. You will also receive a Notice Of Your Rights After Arbitration form. The award may provide for a refund of fees and costs from the attorney to you, an amount of outstanding fees owed to the attorney, or a determination that no money is owing to either party. The arbitrator may also allocate payment of the program filing fees to either party.
