Geoffrey D. Mueller, Esq. Appointed as Panel Chair of the Bergen County District IIB Fee Arbitration Committee

Effective October 1, 2016, Geoffrey D. Mueller, Esq. has been appointed as Panel Chair of the Bergen County District IIB Fee Arbitration Committee. As the Panel Chair, Mr. Mueller is charged with overseeing and resolving attorney fee disputes in District IIB of Bergen County.

As an alternative to lawsuits regarding attorney's fees, the Supreme Court of New Jersey has established the fee arbitration process as a low-cost and efficient method to resolve such disputes. District fee arbitration committees throughout New Jersey are maintained by volunteers, with the goal of resolving, through binding arbitration, disputes over attorney fees. Fee arbitration is impartial and inexpensive, and the arbitration process is typically resolved more quickly than a court case. The fee arbitration process may be less stressful for all involved, since it is less formal and designed to bring matters towards their conclusion in a straightforward, time-saving, and efficient way.
