Hello. While a bar grievance is a disciplinary matter, any claim for monetary damages would probably fall under a civil malpractice claim. You can hire a local attorney who specializes in attorney malpractice claims to help you analyze the potential merit of your damage claim and to bring a civil malpractice suit against the attorney if the facts merit a case. Because your ex hired the attorney, a malpractice claim would most likely have to be brought by your ex.
