Most circuits around Florida have set up local professionalism committees to review complaints against lawyers, but only a few have actually received any complaints, according to reports filed with the Supreme Court’s Commission on Professionalism. The Bar’s Attorney Consumer Assistance Program (ACAP), though, has around 250 complaints pending about unprofessional actions by lawyers, and has fielded more than 1,600 inquiries about lawyer conduct that may include professionalism issues.
