Mission Statement

The Special Committee on the Resolution of Fee Disputes oversees the Fee Dispute Resolution Program in order to: provide an avenue, other than litigation, for the expeditious and satisfactory resolution of fee disputes between attorneys and their clients through mediation and uniform arbitration proceedings; and to foster trust and communication among attorneys and clients.

The committee works to establish FDR committees in each judicial circuit and provides training sessions for those committees. Additionally, the committee collects and records data regarding circuit committee activity; and develops and implements awareness strategies among the public and the legal profession.

The committee's work may include other specific assignments or requests in its general area of responsibility from the bar's officers, the executive committee, or council.
