Attorneys are regulated by the State Bar of Texas per the State Bar Act. Clients have certain rights and privileges under the Act. The State Bar of Texas investigates and prosecutes professional misconduct committed by attorneys. Although not every complaint against or dispute with a lawyer involves professional misconduct, the State Bar’s Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel will provide you with information about how to file a complaint if you believe one is necessary. For more information about your rights as a client, you may call the State Bar, toll free, at 1-800-932-1900.
