In most states ethics complaints against attorneys are handled by the state bar. I suggest you call them or visit their website to learn the procedure for filing a complaint and what time limits exist.

If I were on a bar committee evaluating ethics complaints, if years had gone by before the complaint, I would wonder why. However, this last paragraph is just speculation on my part.
