Lawyer Complaints and Discipline

As an official arm of the Florida Supreme Court, The Florida Bar’s Division of Lawyer Regulation protects the public by providing a means to address lawyer misconduct. The Division accepts complaints against lawyers, investigates those complaints, and prosecutes lawyers who engage in unethical conduct.

The Attorney/Consumer Assistance Program (ACAP) is available to persons wishing to discuss their concerns about a lawyer’s conduct. The toll-free ACAP Hotline (866-352-0707) may be able to assist those persons who have a problem with an attorney but are also open to a possible resolution of the problem without filing a disciplinary complaint.

Visit the Unlicensed Practice of Law page to learn how to file a complaint against someone you believe is practicing law without a license.
