The Lawyers Complaints Service investigates complaints on the conduct and service of lawyers, law firms or employees of either. You can also talk to the Complaints Service to find out if you have grounds for a complaint and how best to handle the complaint if you want to make one.
Some lawyers specialise in specific areas of the law whilst others can provide more general services. You can use the information and tools on our website to get a better understanding of what sort of lawyer you need to engage for your specific circumstances.
For people who are not practising lawyers, care must be taken to avoid giving the impression that they are a practising lawyer. Otherwise, there is a risk of committing offences including holding out as a lawyer and using a misleading description.
