Complain about a lawyer/attorney

The Law Society of South Africa states that:

"It is part of the function of the councils of the law societies to act in the public interest. The law societies are committed to protecting the public against unprofessional and irresponsible conduct by attorneys and are prepared to investigate complaints which are submitted to them in good faith and which fall within their jurisdiction.

Complaints about attorneys should, therefore, be lodged with the relevant provincial law society.

Send your complaints against attorneys practising in:

  • Western, Eastern and Northern Cape to the Cape Law Society (www.capelawsoc.law.za)
