Required, Modified Notice of Client's Right to Fee Arbitration Form Now Available
The California State Bar Board of Trustees has approved modifications to the Notice of Client’s Right to Fee Arbitration form. All attorneys must send this form to their clients prior to or at the time of initiating a lawsuit or other proceeding to collect fees (Bus. & Prof. §6201(a)). Use of any other form, or incorporation of the same or similar language contained in the form on independent stationery or in the body of a letter from the attorney to the client is not legally acceptable
as a substitute.
The modifications became effective March 7, 2013, but the previously approved form can be used until July 1, 2013.
