Complain about a Lawyer
If the barrister you want to complainabout is acting for you, you must contact the Legal Ombudsman.
The Legal Ombudsman is an independent organisation.
It deals with complaints about the service provided by all types of lawyers in England and Wales.
The Legal Ombudsman can decide whether or not the service you received from your barrister was satisfactory, and can:
award compensation for poor service;
consider whether the fees you paid, or have been charged, should be reduced; and
decide whetheryou should receive an apology.
However, they can normally only do this after you have made a complaint to the barrister’s chambers(their office).
The Legal Ombudsman can give you more detailed information about making a complaint.
The Legal Ombudsman will assess your complaint to decide whether it:
relates tothe service you received from your barrister;
is made within 6 years of the problems arising, or within 3 years of you becoming aware of the problem;
or concerns a potential conduct issue.
TheLegal Ombudsman cannottake disciplinary action against a barrister.
So if your complaint relates to the professional conductof a barrister, they will refer the relevant parts of your complaint to us to consider.
You can contact the Legal Ombudsman:
By phone: 0300 555 0333By email: email@example.com
Through the website: www.legalombudsman.org.uk
By post: PO Box 6806, Wolverhampton, WV1 9WJ
If your complaint needs to be referred to us, you do not have to do anything.
The Legal Ombudsman will let you know if it has referred any issues to us,and we will then contact you to confirm this.
