Lake County, Ohio - Bar Association

GRIEVANCE FORM

    PLEASE NOTE: COMPLAINTS AGAINST

    ATTORNEYS AND/OR JUDGES MUST BE

    SUBMITTED IN THE COUNTY IN WHICH THEY  MAINTAIN THEIR OFFICE.

         The function of the Certified Grievance Committee of the Lake County Bar Association is to investigate allegations of attorney misconduct to determine whether or not the attorney has violated a provision of the Code of Professional Responsibility. If the Committee finds probable cause to believe that a violation of the Code has occurred, then the Committee shall proceed with disciplinary action. Disciplinary action involves an attorney's license or right to practice law in Ohio. 

         The Committee cannot give legal advice, provide legal representation for you, or recover or collect monies on your behalf.  The sole function of the Committee is to conduct a disciplinary investigation.

         The Supreme Court Rules also provide that all investigations undertaken by the Committee are private and confidential. This confidentiality provision also applies to the party making allegations of misconduct.

                Print the complaint form, complete all areas, sign the form and mail two (2) copies to the address on the top of the form. If more than one attorney and/or judge is involved in the complaint, please include a separate form for each attorney and/or judge.

              PLEASE MAKE SURE THE COMPLAINT YOU ARE FILING IS AGAINST AN ATTORNEY AND/OR JUDGE WHO MAINTAINS AN OFFICE IN LAKE COUNTY.
