In cases where both parties agreed to be bound by the result of the arbitration and an award in favor of a client has not been satisfied within three months after it was served upon the parties, the client may apply to the appropriate Georgia superior court for confirmation of the award in accordance with the Georgia Arbitration Code, O.C.G.A. § 9-9-1 et seq.
Upon the written request of a client, the Committee may provide a lawyer to represent the client in post-award proceedings at no cost to the client other than court filing fees and litigation expenses. Alternatively, the Office of the General Counsel of the State Bar of Georgia may represent, assist, or advise a client in post-award proceedings, provided the client shall be responsible for all court filing fees and litigation expenses.
