The Idaho State Bar provides a Lawyer Referral Service both online or by calling (208) 334-4500. You will be asked about your unique situation and matched with an attorney who handles your kind of case. The fee for a referral is $35 unless the cases are personal injury, medical malpractice or workers' compensation which receive a free referral. After the initial consultation, any further fees are to be negotiated between the lawyer and client.
A grievance against an attorney must be submitted in writing, unless prior approval is received in special circumstances. The Complaint Form Packet is available online in PDF format. If you are unable to open and print the PDF version, contact Bar Counsel's Office to request a copy by mail.
