Question by  nhoffer (27)

I'm disputing my lawyers fees and have to go to arbitration. What should I know?


Answer by  Darry (3853)

You need to have clear-cut and documented reasons for disputing the fees. If you do not have a reasonable claim they will not find in your favor.

First of all, have your facts in order and have any evidence ready for any of the fees you dispute. Don't just go with your emotion. Arbitration is better for you since there are less rules & restrictions to be aware of.

You should have at your disposal detailed records of meetings, phone calls and letters to your attorney with a clear explanation of why you are disputing the fees. Rest assured that the attorney will have plenty of evidence to support the manner in which you were billed. The more prepared you are, the better your arguments will be.

You should have agreed to the fees before any work was done, but if you have not received what you were promised, you can dispute the service, not the cost.

WE can discuss with the lawyer to decrease the Fee. We have the right to request the lawyer about the arbitration.
