In California all fees over $1,000 are required to be based upon a written understanding. Also, all attorney fee disputes are subject to resolution – a requirement that the attorney first offer to resolve the dispute in binding arbitration before a state or local bar association. The determination on arbitration is binding on the attorney, but not the client. Under no circumstances will the courts condone unreasonable attorney fees.
