Public Resources & Services

The VSB continues to provide essential services to Virginia’s lawyers and the public. However, we continue to keep the health and safety of lawyers, employees, and the general public at the forefront of our actions. The office will remain closed to visitors who have not made prior arrangements until further notice. 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. In order to ensure prompt receipt and review of complaints the Virginia State Bar encourages the public to submit bar complaints online. Find a list of updated processes for commonly used Bar services. Keep up to date on current COVID-19 orders. Keep up to date on Governor Northam’s Executive Orders.

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.
