Most states use the American Bar Association Standard Rules of Professional Conduct.

Some states have a preamble to the rules, which gives you more violations to change them with.

The Rules of Professional Conduct are broken up into different categories.

Some folk will bar grieve every attorney in a firm or district attorney's office for failing to restrain the violating attorney.

If the violating attorney is not a partner, bar grieve every partner in the firm for failing to properly supervise the violating attorney.

Most states have a form to use. Other states you can do a bar grievance as a letter.

Fill in your information and information about the attorney.

There is a section to tell your story. Make sure you list each of the Rules of Professional Conduct that the attorney violated.

On each bar grievance, only put one bad thing the attorney did. Each bad thing hte attorney does will probably violate several of the Rules of Professional Conduct.

Only send one bar grievance at a time. Every few weeks sent in another bar grievance.

Once you file a bar grievance, they become secret until the bar decides to prosecute the attorney.

If an attorney or anyon else complains or asks you if you filed a bar grievance against him, call 911 and ask that the attorney be arrested for witness intimidation for failure to keep the bar grievance secret.
