On August 18, 2010, the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Nevada appointed Partner Robert Schumacher to the Las Vegas Panel of the Fee Dispute Arbitration Committee. The appointment is for a three-year term effective August 2010.
The State Bar of Nevada's Fee Dispute Arbitration Program is an informal, free program designed to resolve fee disputes of $250 or more between attorneys and clients. Fee Dispute Committee members volunteer as impartial arbitrators and determine what the reasonable fees should be for the legal services performed. If all parties agree, mediation services are also available as an alternative to an arbitration hearing.
