If you have concerns about the ethical conduct of a lawyer, you can file a complaint, which we will review. If you have a minor dispute with your lawyer, you can ask us for help instead of filing a complaint. If you have additional questions about the grievance process, see our FAQ About the Grievance Process or email your inquiry to intake@wsba.org.
