Peer Review Committee

Mission Statement

The Peer Review Program deals with complaints about attorneys that do not rise to the level of an ethical violation.  They are referred to the program internally, from the Lawyer Regulation Office or the Attorney/ Consumer Assistance Program.  The matters are reviewed in-house and then assigned it to one of the Peer Review committee members, who contact both the complaining party and the attorney in question to counsel the attorney and resolve the matter.  The attorney's participation and cooperation are voluntary, but this is often an effective method by which the State Bar can help an attorney adjust his or her behavior and avoid further complaints.
