OK, i ahve prepared my info for the fee dispute in NJ. Where do i file it?
I live in Bergen Country and the court is located in Hackensack. But the letter that i found presumably says that i have to file it in the couty where the attorney that i am disputing the fees from is practicing law.
The attorney was working in NJ and no moved to Philadelphia, but his old law firm is in NJ.
Paris Ackerman & Schmierer LLP - office is in Roseland, NJ 07068. THe case that i tried is in Bergen Country where this attorney represented me. Please advise where exactly i have to file the fee dispute.

Was the fee paid to the firm? Was it paid for work he did in the name of the firm, while he was a partner or employee?

If the fee was paid for work he was doing when employed by the firm then the dipute should be filed in the county where the firm is located.

I am but i would rpoefer not to pay the $60. Yes he was employed by the firm and the retainer states the firm letter head and his name just recoreded as one of the attorneys participating in the representaion.

So it would be a county where the Roseland, NJ 07068 is located?
