Fee arb trainings slated for September and October

Three training sessions for prospective and current volunteer attorneys who arbitrate attorney-client fee disputes for mandatory fee arbitration programs through the Monterey, Solano and Kern county bar associations and the State Bar will be held in September and October. The Monterey training is Sept. 24, from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.; the Solano training is Oct. 2, from noon - 3 p.m.; and the Kern training is Oct. 15, from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.
