Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality
Access to Justice and Legal Costs: Discussion (Resumed)
Dr. Brian Doherty:
A decision is made as to whether the complaint is admissible under the scheme of the LSRA Act. The complaints that we can informally resolve and determine are those related to inadequate service or excessive costs. Complaints of misconduct are dealt with by the complaints committee but if they are determined to be of a serious nature they are sent to the legal practitioners disciplinary tribunal.
