If you have a conflict with another lawyer or staff, and you’re looking for outside help to resolve it, the CBA Member Dispute Resolution Service (MDR) has volunteer lawyer/mediators available to talk through the problem with you in complete confidence. They will help you decide whether or not it’s a Law Society matter, give you suggestions for how to handle it, and even intervene as a mediator if both parties agree.
