With a guilty plea, you don't have a true right to appeal. There are certain issues you can ask for what's called "leave" to appeal. The Attorney Grievance Commission does not determine malpractice; they determine attorney ethical issues.
I was looking at title vi information but as far as I know that framework is mainly for programs that accept federal assistance not so much referring to the employees of government offices.
