Our certification with The State Bar of California
The State Bar of California, as the regulatory agency responsible for admissions and discipline of California lawyers, is not authorized to offer legal advice or make direct referrals to attorneys for specific cases.
In contrast, 1000Attorneys.com - California State Bar Attorney Search is a certified lawyer referral service governed by statutory regulations and State Bar Rules.
While many legal directories, attorney networks, and client-lawyer matching platforms are available online, most are not certified and may promote lawyers who pay for advertising without meeting the required standards.
Our certification ensures that clients are referred to experienced, qualified attorneys who adhere to high ethical and professional standards. Additionally, our certification serves the public by establishing minimum requirements that participating attorneys must meet and supports efforts to provide affordable legal services.
The importance of hiring vetted California Attorneys
Ensuring ethical and professional legal representation
Hiring vetted California attorneys is crucial to ensure legal representation that adheres to high professional standards, which in turn protects the interests and well-being of clients. This is especially important given the high number of disciplinary actions taken against attorneys in California.
According to the State Bar of California, in 2021 alone, opened 15,715 cases against attorneys in the state for violations of the State Bar Act and the Rules of Professional Conduct as well as complaints against
non-attorneys for the unauthorized practice of law (UPL). Such disciplinary actions are taken in response to ethical violations, misconduct, and other forms of unprofessional behavior.
❝ For example, in 2020, an employment attorney was disbarred for embezzling over $1.3 million from clients, and in 2019, another personal injury attorney was suspended for one year for failing to properly supervise his law firm's trust account. These examples demonstrate the serious consequences of unethical or unprofessional behavior by attorneys. ❞
By hiring vetted, top-rated California attorneys, clients can ensure that their legal professional has a track record of ethical conduct and adherence to professional standards. Attorneys in our network have been thoroughly screened and evaluated by 1000Attorneys.com. This process also ensures that clients are matched with the best local attorneys with ample experience related to their legal issues.
