The importance of vetting California attorneys
How choosing experienced and ethical lawyers can impact the outcome of your legal case
A California bar-certified lawyer referral service is an important resource for finding pre-screened and reputable attorneys in California. Unlike self-serving lawyer marketing, a referral service is unbiased and provides free lawyer referrals based on verified information about California attorneys, including their qualifications, experience, and areas of expertise.
When working with vetted California attorneys, you can be confident that they understand the legal system and have the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively represent your interests. They will be able to identify potential issues, develop strategies to address them, and anticipate and respond to the opposing party's actions.
Similarly, working with an ethical attorney can help ensure that your case is handled in a fair and honest manner. Ethical California attorneys will always put their client's best interests first and will not engage in any conduct that could be considered dishonest or deceitful. This is important when protecting your rights and interests in a legal case.
Choosing the right attorneys is crucial to maximize the chances of a successful outcome in a legal case and establishing trust and confidence in the attorney-client relationship.

Our certification with The State Bar of California
The State Bar of California is the regulatory agency for California lawyers in charge of admissions and discipline. The State Bar is not a lawyer referral service and cannot give any legal advice or direct anyone seeking a referral to a specific attorney or conducting an attorney search for a specific case.
As a certified lawyer referral service, 1000Attorneys.com - California State Bar Attorney Search is controlled by statute (Business & Professions Code section 6155 and State Bar Rules Title 3. Programs and Services. Division 5. Providers of Programs and Services. Chapter 3. Lawyer Referral Services).
Most legal directories, attorney networks, or client-lawyer matching platforms found online are not certified. Often, these legal platforms and lawyer directories are agencies advertising on behalf of a pool of lawyers who share the high costs associated with marketing their services (always read the fine print at the bottom of the site). Therefore, any attorney who pays to be listed can set up a biased and self-serving profile.
"Our certification ensures that clients are referred to experienced, insured, qualified attorneys who are committed to serving clients with efficiency and integrity"
Our certification also protects the public by establishing minimum standards that each participating attorney must meet. It also serves the public by supporting activities to provide affordable legal services.
