The Turks & Caicos Islands Bar Council (“TCIBC”) is the regulatory body for the legal profession in the Turks & Caicos Islands (“TCI”). The TCIBC has authority to review the conduct and competence of attorneys practicing in the TCI, including attorneys in private practice, or employed in a private establishment in the islands, or employed as a law officer in the public service of the islands. The TCIBC can also review the conduct of an attorney outside practice of law if the conduct reflects badly on the legal profession.
We cannot help you with all of your concerns. For example the Turks & Caicos Bar Council is not able to assist in the following matters:
- We cannot provide you with legal advice, you will need to refer your matter to an attorney.
- We cannot intervene in, or change, the decision of a court.
- We cannot intervene in or delve into merits of ongoing legal proceedings.
- We cannot review complaints about Judges.
- We cannot insist that an attorney take a case, remain on or withdraw from a case or do something specific in a case.
- We cannot reduce your fees. If you believe the fees charged by your attorney were not reasonable please contact the Supreme Court Registrar. For more information please visit the TCI Bar Association website at tciba.tc.
- We cannot pay you money or make an attorney pay you money because of an attorney’s mistake. If you believe an attorney has made a mistake concerning your matter you may wish to seek legal advice about your remedies.
