Navigating the legal world
can be overwhelming.
The Florida Bar protects the public by prosecuting unethical attorneys, and investigating and prosecuting the unlicensed practice of law. We also work hard to assist people who are trying to get information about Florida’s legal system.
For individuals who are unsure if a lawyer has acted ethically or who are dissatisfied and wish to consider whether filing a complaint may be appropriate, The Florida Bar operates the Attorney Consumer Assistance Program (ACAP). ACAP staff, including attorneys, handle complaints and may be able to resolve problems before a complaint is filed.
