Public Resources & Services

The VSB continues to provide essential services to Virginia’s lawyers and the public. However, we have taken steps to keep the health and safety of our members, employees, and the general public at the forefront of our actions during this rapidly changing situation. Accordingly, many in-person services will be reduced or suspended. The VSB office at 1111 E. Main Street is closed to visitors. If you need to reach a staff person, please send an email or call the appropriate contact person.

We strongly urge the use of electronic communication to assist us in providing services to protect the public. Read more. In order to ensure prompt receipt and review of complaints the Virginia State Bar encourages the public to submit bar complaints online.

As part of our mission, we provide residents of Virginia access to legal resources, such as legal aid, financial recovery due to dishonest lawyer conduct, and educational materials.

Protection Fund

The Clients’ Protection Fund reimburses persons who suffer a financial loss because of dishonest conduct by a Virginia lawyer whose license has been suspended or revoked. The Fund is a remedy of last resort for those who cannot obtain reimbursement from other sources.
