PART 137 FEE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROGRAM

Today I will be a Part 137 arbitrator.

Administrative Rules of the Unified Court System & Uniform Rules of the Trial Courts Part 137 is the New York State Fee Dispute Resolution Program, which provides for the informal and expeditious resolution of fee disputes between attorneys and clients through arbitration and mediation. In accordance with the procedures for arbitration, arbitrators shall determine the reasonableness of fees for professional services, including costs, taking into account all relevant facts and circumstances. Mediation of fee disputes, where available, is strongly encouraged.
