Phishing Attack Targeting Bar Members

It has come to our attention that attorneys in other states are receiving e-mail phishing attacks that appear to come from their state bar or bar association that may, for example, indicate that a complaint has been made or disciplinary action commenced regarding the attorney or the attorney’s firm, or that the attorney is late in paying dues or fees. Although we have not yet heard of this happening in Virginia, please be aware that these potentially malicious phishing attempts are underway so monitor your e-mails carefully.
