In Connecticut, you should contact the Statewide Grievance Committee at or (860) 568-5157; Fax: (860) 568-4953. If you look on the state website, it will only tell you the CURRENT status of the attorney, not past misconduct. You always want to ask if the attorney has EVER been suspended, disbarred or otherwise reprimanded or disciplined for misconduct. For people in other states, every state is different, but you can always start with your state bar.
