Every practicing attorney, in every area of the law will deal with a fee dispute at one time or another in their legal profession. Once an attorney is made aware of a disputed bill by a client, he has several choices. He can attempt to settle the dispute or demand payment.

In some cases, clients will take the offensive and file a complaint with the Disciplinary Committee with the Appellate Division. The matter now has become more serious because of the potential penalties the attorneys can face. It is important to answer the complaint in a timely manner. Perhaps, there may also be ways of settling the matter before a hearing needs to take place. The correct path is determined by the specific facts of your case.
