Filing a Grievance
If you believe that an attorney has acted in an unethical manner and is in violation of the New Hampshire Rules of Professional Conduct, you may file a grievance. When filing a grievance, you are asked to include the following information:
- the name and address of the attorney;
- a brief description of the legal matter which gave rise to your grievance;
- a detailed factual description of the lawyer’s conduct;
- the relevant documents that illustrate the conduct of the attorney or, if you are unable to provide such documents, an explanation of why you are unable to provide them;
- what proof is to be provided, including the names and addresses of witnesses, to establish a violation of a disciplinary rule;
- the date(s) of the event(s) you describe.
There are two ways to file a grievance:
- You may complete and submit the electronic form below. A copy of your grievance must also be sent to the attorney about whom you are filing a grievance.
- You may write us a letter, which includes all of the information noted above. Your grievance letter must be signed under oath, and a copy of the letter and enclosures must be sent to the attorney about whom you are writing. Click the following to view/download an oath form that you must sign and a Certification of Copies Form. Both of these forms need to be completed and included with your letter when you submit it to this office. A copy of your grievance must also be sent to the attorney about whom you are filing a grievance.
