Fee Arbitration Committee

Mission Statement

The Fee Arbitration Program is a free, voluntary program for resolving fee disputes over $500.00 between bar members and their clients, or under certain circumstances between bar members.  Both client and attorney must agree to the arbitration for it to proceed.  The files are processed in-house during the initial stages and then assigned to Fee Arbitration Committee Members to oversee, review, and appoint fee arbitrators to hear cases - they often serve as the arbitrators themselves.  Arbitrators hold fee arbitration hearings and issue awards in Fee Arbitration matters assigned to them during the committee year.  The Committee consists of 60 or more members and each member works independently on the matter(s) to which he/she is assigned.  The decisions of the arbitrator(s) are final and binding, and are subject to only limited appeal through the superior court system under the Arizona Revised Statutes.
