Availability Notice of LACBA’s Attorney-Client Mediation and Arbitration Services (ACMAS)


During these times of uncertainty, we all must make sacrifices for the sake of the health and safety of our community. Please know that our first priority is to ensure arbitration and mediation services are available and offered in a safe environment. The Attorney Client Mediation and Arbitration Services (ACMAS) will continue to process arbitration and mediation requests and answer questions related to attorney-client fee disputes. These processes can move forward by submission of papers or by teleconference. We will, however, be operating with limited access and some processes may be delayed. Note, until further notice, we will not accept in-person delivery of documents at our main office, which is closed to the public.

If you need information, forms or rules, you may call us at (213) 896-6426 or access them here.

You may submit a request for arbitration online here.

In addition to accepting the request for arbitration online, we will accept the Client’s Petition for Arbitration by fax at (213) 833-6718 or by U.S. Mail.
