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. In general, binding arbitration agreements are not enforceable if they were entered into before the dispute arose.
