Filing a complaint against a lawyer
The primary mission of the Barreau du Québec is to oversee how lawyers practice law to ensure protection of the public. The Barreau du Québec oversees the professional discipline of its members and their adherence to ethical standards, and assesses their competence as well as the competence of those aspiring to join its ranks. This mission is carried out through the Bureau du syndic, an independent department of the Barreau tasked with receiving complaints from citizens and conducting investigations when necessary. At all times, you can reach out to the Barreau if you have any concerns about the conduct of a lawyer.
