Legal Fee Dispute Information

Helping clients and lawyers resolve differences concerning legal fees

The Legal Fee Dispute committee will attempt to resolve disputes between clients and BCBA member attorneys. However, this is a voluntary process and not mandatory. If the responding party does not agree to participate, the Committee will close the case. The Fee Disputes Committee does not have any legal authority to require a responding party to participate in this program. If the responding party does not agree to participate, you may wish to pursue your remedies at law.

A client may initiate a request for legal fee dispute committee consideration by submitting the Client Fee Dispute Form (below) and mailing to: 

The Butler County Bar Association
Attn: Fee Dispute
240 South Main Street
Butler, PA 16001

No phone calls.  No electronic submissions.

Under the Constitution of Pennsylvania, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has exclusive jurisdiction to oversee the conduct of lawyers. The Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania receives and investigates complaints.
