Grievances And Complaints
Arnold & Clifford LLP, is a Columbus, Ohio, law firm that also serves the Cleveland, Cincinnati and Dayton areas. We focus on trial practice for both individuals and corporate clients, in both state and federal courts, including client grievances and complaints cases.
It is not uncommon for disputes to arise and emotions to flare throughout litigation. When a client feels mistreated or neglected, he or she might file a complaint with the bar association or the Office of Disciplinary Counsel. These grievances need to be addressed quickly.
Client grievances can range from simple neglect of communication to severe malpractice resulting in a negative case outcome.
These client complaints can be based on numerous complaints, including:
- Not returning calls
- Not returning letters
- Misusing client funds
- Missing deadlines
- Mishandling of evidence
Unfortunately, many clients can argue that these actions resulted in direct damage to his or her case. We strive to aggressively defend lawyers against these complaints. Our depth of legal knowledge and our strict adherence to ethics and professional responsibility allows us to effectively advise and represent clients no matter how complex the complaint.
