CA Bar requires email but what about a website?

California State Bar Association requires all attorneys to provide an email address  in their online state bar profile.  This makes sense for the state bar so they can more cheaply and efficiently bill and communicate with members.  Email use to be optional.  Why not include a field for attorneys to enter their website profile? 

Attorneys at big firms may not have a unique URL to provide but they can provide a link to the firm website and the user can do the rest.  This would allow other attorneys and the public one stop to review an attorney’s qualifications, their law firm affiliations and most importantly, the opportunity to view a photo!

    I agree. It would have been ideal back a year ago with the emergence of al the “lawyer-based” loan modification law firms. Although, the whole idea there was to hide the fact that there was only one lawyer in the “law firm,” everyone else was a foreclosure consultant or some facsimile thereof. I notice that most of the public entity attorneys (DAs, PDs, etc.) will probably be able to get around this rule and they will claim “safety and security purposes,” but the success of the DA and PD relies largely on the fact that they can never be reached. An email would ruin that mystique.

    Anyway, I wanted to share something with you about the California State Bar, if I may. You may find it interesting and I would enjoy your comments and any other comments as well:

    I’ve been championing this cause for over a year and I finally found a niche that might help consumers crack the code of the CA State Bar’s Client Security Fund and get a well-deserved source of restitution.
