KBA Committees and Sections
The mission of the Fee Dispute Resolution Committee is to assist lawyers and their clients in resolving disputes relating to fees if requested to do so by either the lawyer or the client, if both agree to have the dispute resolved by the Committee. In 2012, the Committee received eleven new disputes from either attorneys or their clients, through October 31. This year, in addition to our normal business, the Committee focused on prior changes to the Rules of Professional Conduct relating to non-refundable retainers, and how those changes impact the fee relationship between attorneys and their clients.
Fee Dispute Resolution Activities
The Fee Dispute Committee meets every month on the first Wednesday of the month at the KBA Office at 12 noon.
