How Do We Get Trump's lawyers disbarred?

With all the affronts to common judicial procedures, filing suits without evidence, disregarding all legal precedents and for generally being the reasons citizen's distrust the legal profession... my question is simple; but may be complicated with each state's own required disbarment processes.

How do we petition each state to disbar every lawyer who filed one of Trump's failed legal challenges to the 2020 Presidential election?

2. *We* don't; most state licensing agencies accept complaints from clients,

parties to lawsuits, and judges, not members of the public, especially from outside the state, who haven't been directly affected. However, at least one federal judge seems about to do just that. https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.dcd.225330/gov.uscourts.dcd.225330.10.0_1.pdf

4. This judge is considering filing with the bar

Courts are not instruments through which parties engage in such gamesmanship or symbolic political gestures. As a result, at the conclusion of this litigation, the Court will determine whether to issue an order to show cause why this matter should not be referred to its Committee on Grievances for potential discipline of Plaintiffs’ counsel.

5. Thanks for the quick replies

I wasn't sure how bidbarment actually worked, but the answers, so far are informative.

Could the municipal clerks or poll workers file a suit, as many Wisconsin poll workers are paid by the clerks.
As employees of the municipality, who've also taken an oath to the state to serve... could they show some type of damages?
I would think the Dane and Milwaukee County workers have been threatened or defamed by false claims.

6. Gohmert, Dallas lawyer who sued to change election results violated ethics rules for lawyers,

This will be fun to watch https://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/2021/01/04/gohmert-dallas-lawyer-who-sued-to-change-election-results-violated-ethics-rules-for-lawyers-group-says/

A national lawyers group on Monday called for professional licensing bodies to investigate East Texas congressman Louie Gohmert and his attorneys for what it called a “self-evident breach” of ethics rules for lawyers when they sued unsuccessfully last week to try to force Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the results of the Nov. 3 presidential election.

Lawyers Defending American Democracy, a nonpartisan group that says it has the support of 5,000 lawyers across the country, said in a statement that Gohmert, Dallas lawyer William L. “Lewis” Sessions and unnamed other lawyers should be sanctioned for egregious conduct.

They brought a “specious” lawsuit that was “premised on an absurd reading of the 12th Amendment,” which directs the vice president as the U.S. Senate’s presiding officer to open vote certifications from the various states, the group said......

Last month, it called for the state bar of Texas to investigate state Attorney General Ken Paxton and for disciplinary bodies in other states to consider sanctions against 17 of Paxton’s counterparts in red states who sued in the Supreme Court in a vain attempt to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s win in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin.

The group said discipline also should be considered against any lawyers among the 126 GOP members of the U.S. House who supported the Paxton-led suit
