Bar Counsel’s Office is in need of new fee arbitration panelists. The Idaho State Bar’s Fee Arbitration Panels review matters submitted to fee arbitration by clients disputing fees charged by their lawyer. Panels are held in various districts and are formed as needed. If the filed dispute is for $2,500 or less, it is assigned to a one lawyer panel; if the filed dispute is for more than $2,500, it is assigned to a three-member panel including one non-lawyer.
If you are interested in volunteering as a fee arbitration panelist, please contact Melody Smart.
