About the Bar

Clients’ Protection Fund

The Clients’ Protection Fund Board makes monetary awards to people who have suffered financial losses because of the dishonest conduct of Virginia lawyers. The fund is managed by a fourteen-member board appointed by the Virginia State Bar Council. Board members investigate all petitions from clients for payments from the fund. The board hears each petition and determines the amount of loss.
