The purpose of the Orange County Bar Association Mandatory Fee Arbitration Program is to resolve fee disputes between clients and attorneys. Clients and attorneys have the opportunity for a neutral arbitrator to decide the appropriate amount of attorney’s fees through an informal, low cost proceeding.
An attorney/client fee dispute can be arbitrated if the attorney has an office in Orange County, or the majority of services were rendered in Orange County.
If you believe you have a fee dispute with an Orange County attorney, you may contact the OCBA Public Services Department at 949-440-6700 x153 or by email.
