The Attorney Grievance Commission (AGC) is the investigative and prosecutorial arm of the Michigan Supreme Court for allegations of attorney misconduct. The AGC serves to maintain and promote the integrity of the Bar and to protect the public, the courts, and the legal profession. The AGC has jurisdiction over all attorneys licensed to practice law by the State Bar of Michigan and attorneys otherwise permitted to practice law in the State of Michigan.

In exercising its investigative and prosecutorial powers, the AGC strives to promptly and efficiently hold attorneys accountable for their misconduct or determine that the allegations do not merit formal disciplinary action. The basis for AGC action is a violation of the Michigan Rules of Professional Conduct and/or limited applications of the Michigan Court Rules.

The Attorney Discipline Boardis the adjudicative arm of the Michigan Supreme Court for matters in which the AGC has initiated formal proceedings.

The AGC does not have primary jurisdiction over the Michigan Judiciary. Complaints regarding Michigan judges should be sent to the Judicial Tenure Commission at:
