For Attorneys

The California State Bar approved Mandatory Fee Arbitration Program of the Sonoma County Bar Association handles fee and cost disputes including claims of return of non-earned prepaid fees. Mandatory Fee Arbitration operates under the authority of the California Business & Professions Code sections 6200-6206.

Before a California attorney can proceed to the courts to collect fees and/or costs, they must deliver a “Notice of Client’s Right to Arbitration” either before filing suit or concurrently with the summons and complaint.

If you have been notified by this office of a client’s request to arbitrate a fee dispute with you, you should respond to that request using an “Attorney’s Reply to Client’s Request for Arbitration” form.
