Resolution of Legal Fee Disputes Program

The Resolution of Legal Fee Disputes Program allows lawyers and clients with a dispute over the fees incurred for legal services to find a solution to their problem through mediation and/or arbitration, rather than litigation. The dispute resolution process is free, informal, and impartial. Either side may initiate the resolution process. In the case of mediation, a volunteer attorney experienced in mediation techniques will help bring lawyer and client to a mutually satisfactory settlement. In the case of arbitration, a hearing panel comprised of three volunteers (two attorneys and one layperson) will decide a case based on written and oral presentations from both sides.

Find out more about the program and filing for dispute resolution below. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the pamphlets, download a free version here.
