Fee Dispute Committee

The El Paso County Bar Association Fee Dispute Committee will arbitrate disputes between attorneys and clients involving legal fees. This is a free service, but both parties must agree to arbitrate.

To submit your case, send a packet to the Bar Association with copies of the disputed bill/invoice, along with any information that you think help proves why your bill is wrong. Include a letter stating which fees you are disputing and why you are disputing the fees. Your packet will be forwarded to the Committee Chair who will contact you about your dispute.
