Fee Dispute Resolution Program

This program is offered as a public service by The Missouri Bar. The program is designed to assist clients who question the amount or reasonableness of a fee charged by their lawyer for legal services. While only clients may file the complaint petition with the program, lawyers may suggest this program to their clients as an alternative to resolve disputes over fees. Participation in the program is voluntary.
