Filing a Complaint
May I ask for fee arbitration if I want a refund of fees I have already paid to an attorney?
If you are seeking a refund of attorney’s fees that you have already paid, you may request Mandatory Fee Arbitration any time as long as your request is made within the applicable time period allowed in which to bring a civil action seeking judicial resolution of a fee dispute. To preserve your right to arbitrate, you should file a request for arbitration promptly.
