Member Service Spotlight: Dispute Resolution Committee

The NH Bar Associationís Dispute Resolution Committee is designed to handle, first on an informal basis, those disputes against or between attorneys that do not rise to the level of an ethical violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct. Examples of such disputes include those where an attorney is not returning phone calls, is not keeping the client informed as to what is happening with their case, is making excuses why their case is taking so long, will not relinquish a clientís file if the attorney has been dismissed, questions and/or disputes involving fees, etc.

Volunteers are assigned to disputes filed with the committee and are available to assist in a resolution, either informally or more formally through mediation or binding arbitration. Mediation can either be by phone or by meeting. All dispute resolution assistance is voluntary.

All inquiries and proceedings are confidential and all communications between the Association, the parties and the mediator(s) or arbitrator(s) shall be privileged and not subject to discovery or production in any other forum or for any other purpose.

For more information, visit the MyNHBar dashboard and look for the Dispute Resolution Committee Link under the Member Services and Benefits tab.
