HELP!! How do you file a complaint about your attorney?

by Susan
(Daytona Beach, FL)

What is the process to file a malpractice complaint against your attorney, when you represent yourself in a case? Does the court get the complaint, that you are currently being represented within? Or does the Bar Association receive the complaint?
Please help direct me in the right direction of how I go about filing a pro se malpractice complaint against my attorney.
Thanks!

Bar Complaint
by: FALDP Staff

Hi Susan,
The first place to go is the Florida Bar. www.florida.org . Depending on the nature of the complaint they may or may not be able to help, but you should probably start with them anyway. The Florida Bar may tell you that they cannot help and that you need to sue in civil court.

Here is a consumer pamphlet on the Florida Bar's site - https://www.floridabar.org/public/consumer/pamphlet020/
