My opinion is that you cannot get the Bar to arbitrate if you were never a client, and small claims court may be the most appropriate forum in which to resolve this claim, see

You can file a complaint with the Bar, see

but if you want to get paid you will probably have to go to Court.

I hope this information is helpful.
