How can you file an ethical complaint against a lawyer

Lawyer's Assistant: What province are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

New York State

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not yet

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Well, I was part of a collective bargaining union. Both management and the Union inappropriately entered into an agreement that required substance abuse counselors to acquire a certification to continue their employment without negotiating the terms or making the counselors aware of this agreement until after the fact. The union organizer was reprimanded for his role in entering into such an agreement. The case was presented in a 3rd Step Grievance. The attorney who is also the vice president of Human Resources presented the case for management. The same attorney was a key witness for management at the Arbitration hearing. At that hearing, the attorney presented fraudulent written evidence and perjury himself to affect the hearing in favor of managements.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment "at will," union, full time, or part time?

Union

Good afternoon. If you feel there was misconduct, you can file a complaint with the committee and have the attorneys actions look into. Here is the link below.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
