What is the Consumer Assistance Program?

The Mississippi Bar's Consumer Assistance Program (CAP) helps people with questions or problems with Mississippi Attorneys.  When someone calls or writes The Mississippi Bar to complain about a Mississippi lawyer, the Consumer Assistance Program responds to the inquiry and attempts to identify the issue.  Many issues can be resolved by providing information, contacting the attorney, or suggesting ways in which to resolve the dispute.  The general public is usually provided with a Request for Assistance form to contact the Consumer Assistance Program, but the form is not required as CAP responds to all phone calls and written correspondence sent to The Mississippi Bar offices regarding complaints or inquiries.
