To file a complaint against an attorney, contact the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel by calling (303) 457-5800, or toll free (877) 888-1370.
When you call, please have the following information available:
- Your full name, address, and phone number.
- Attorney's full name, registration number, address, law firm, and phone number. (For assistance with this information, use attorney search.)
- Date of occurrence and date of your awareness of your attorney’s misconduct.
- Court location and case numbers (if you have a court case).
When you call the office with a complaint, you will be connected to the central intake division, which is the first step of the complaint process. A non-lawyer investigator in the central intake division will ask you questions about your complaint. The intake investigator may not provide legal advice or give you an opinion about your complaint. Rather, your complaint will be assigned for investigation by an attorney in the central intake division. All of the attorneys working in the central intake division have extensive experience in the practice of law.
Either the assigned attorney or a non-lawyer investigator will contact you about your complaint as soon as possible. Because of the number of complaints filed with the office, a delay of several days is possible.
Please do not file a complaint in writing before contacting the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel by telephone. You will be informed if written information is helpful in evaluating your complaint.
