When you hire a lawyer, you should expect professional and ethical behavior. The duties of lawyers to their clients are explained in the Rules of Professional Conduct, which all lawyers must follow. The responsibilities of clients are explained in "The Attorney-Client Relationship."
Complaints about lawyers are investigated by the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel, overseen by the Supreme Court of Missouri. Instructions on how and when to file complaints can be found on the Chief Disciplinary Counsel's website.
Fee disputes can be handled at no cost to clients through the Bar's Fee Dispute Resolution Program.
