The Office of Disciplinary Counsel (ODC) was formed by the Hawai`i Supreme Court to investigate complaints against Hawai`i lawyers as part of the Disciplinary Board of the Hawai`i Supreme Court. The ODC also provides investigative and administrative support to the Lawyers' Fund.
Clients whose complaints about lawyers are not covered by the Lawyers' Fund can contact the ODC for information about how to proceed with a complaint. Ethical issues and violations of the various rules applying to lawyers are the complaints most often pursued by the ODC.
