California Lawyers

By: Ken Marlborough

The State of California registers all the lawyers – active and retired – who reside in or do business within the state. If you are searching for lawyers and their contact information, you will likely find one on any of the websites operated by various organizations that supplement the state's list.

You may view details published about the lawyer you are considering under the following topics: Attorney Search; Check an attorney's bar membership record; Bar Exam; Admissions; First-Year Law Students; Registration; MPRE Information; MCLE; Top Ten FAQs; Compliance Card; Online CLE; Attorney Address Change; Attorney Complaints; Insurance Programs; State Bar Foundation; Bar-Member Survey Sections; and Online CLE.

You may also want to visit the websites of the law firms within California. Most of the law firms maintain websites and offer an interactive interface that allows you to search for information, join live chats, or just leave a message. You may also search through their lists of clients just to see how reliable they are.

In the forums, you may search for topics that are applicable to you. Should you need further counsel, contact the law firm and set an appointment. Some law firms do not charge for an initial consultation. They work on incidentals, meaning they do not charge until you have collected on the damages. Besides, on the initial meeting, they also know that at that time, you are still choosing who can represent you the best.

If you are lawyer who has just recently moved to California and if you want to establish your network faster, you should join the State Bar of California. You need, however, to have passed the bar in California to qualify to join the organization. It is also a good way for you to be visible to potential clients or for you to offer pro bono work.
