Chapter 6. Interpleader - California Code of Civil Procedure Section 386.6

386.6.  (a) A party to an action who follows the procedure set forth
in Section 386 or 386.5 may insert in his motion, petition,
complaint, or cross complaint a request for allowance of his costs
and reasonable attorney fees incurred in such action. In ordering the
discharge of such party, the court may, in its discretion, award
such party his costs and reasonable attorney fees from the amount in
dispute which has been deposited with the court. At the time of final
judgment in the action the court may make such further provision for
assumption of such costs and attorney fees by one or more of the
adverse claimants as may appear proper.
   (b) A party shall not be denied the attorney fees authorized by
subdivision (a) for the reason that he is himself an attorney,
appeared in pro se, and performed his own legal services.
