Complaint Mediation Panel

The Complaint Mediation Panel (CMP) of the New York County Lawyers’ Association was established by court order at the request of the Departmental Disciplinary Committee of the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Judicial Department, for the purpose of mediating complaints against members of the bar.  It is not the function of the CMP to determine whether professional misconduct has occurred.  Rather, complaints referred to the CMP are those considered more appropriately susceptible to resolution by mediation or conciliation instead of proceeding in the regular disciplinary system.
 
If you believe a lawyer may have violated the Code of Professional Responsibility, you may file a complaint with the Departmental Disciplinary Committee.
