Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
Regrettably, if you did not dispute the bill within the 20 days after your received the bill as stated in your Fee Agreement with your Attorney, that meant that you did not have any issue with the bill and thus, it is unlikely that the arbitration for fee dispute would be in your favor.
I am so sorry that I do not have better news for you.
All the best,
There could be an exception if for medical reason or something similar you were unable to review the bill within the time stated in your Fee Agreement and after the medical emergency was over, you reached out to the Attorney about your concerns with the bill.
If I emailed said, " you told me no charge, but you charged $xxx " this could be dispute?
Response 1: Yes,
Or need to pick clearly which charge?
Response 2: No, you do not have to. Your objection would be fully noted. Then it is up to the Attorney to get back to you and address your concern.
