Complaints Against  GA Lawyers 
All Georgia lawyers must follow the rules enforced by 
The Georgia State Bar Association
(800) 334-6865. For the rules and regulations lawyers must answer to, click here.

The Georgia Bar can suspend lawyers for wrongful conduct and can even expel them from the legal profession.  For minor grievances such as a lawyer's failure to return your files or phone calls, contact
The Consumer Assistance Program (CAP) or call(404) 527-8759.

    If you wish to file a formal complaint against a lawyer, have CAP to send you  a "grievance form"
 and file it with The Georgia State Bar Association.

Aid From The Client Security Fund
If a lawyer has cheated you, the State Bar Client-Security Fund may be able to reimburse you up to $25,000 for your loss.  To set the process in motion you must first file a claim against the attorney with the State Bar.  Call (800) 334-6865 for more details.
