The Society will assess and/or investigate complaints and refer serious matters to the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal.

Complaints to the Law Society must be made in writing.

You can lodge a complaint against a lawyer using the Complaints Form

Before lodging your complaint, please read the Complaints Guide

All complaints should be addressed to:
