Fee Dispute Committee

The Fee Dispute Committee is a voluntary mediation panel that hears disputes between clients and lawyer members of the Wilkes-Barre Law & Library Association regarding allegations that the lawyer over charged the client for work performed by the lawyer for that client. After a review of the matter, and an opportunity for the parties to be heard, the Committee makes a non-binding recommendation to the parties in an attempt to resolve the dispute.
