Anyone who is seeking legal representation for their California criminal defense matters wants to have a very qualified lawyer fighting for them. One way the State Bar of California is trying to help consumers in making an informed decision is their recent decision to post “online” all prior attorney disciplinary history on the State Bar of California website.

What this means to the consumer looking for the most qualified lawyer to help them in their case is that you will now be able to see both completed disciplinary cases as well as “active pending” matters that a lawyer is facing with the State Bar.

Criminal defense lawyers can be disciplined for many reasons. They can be found to have acted incompetently in a prior case. They can be found to have unfairly taken advantage of a client or clients in prior cases.

They can be found to have taken money from clients that they were not legally entitled to.

Before hiring a lawyer or law firm to represent you it is vital you seek out all information that can help you make that important decision. You can go to to seek out all information about any lawyer in California you are considering retaining to assist you.

At Wallin and Klarich we pride ourselves in having NO LAWYERS as members of our powerful legal team that have any state bar discipline of any kind with the State Bar. The reason for this is due to the fact that prior to adding a highly qualified lawyer to our legal team we do an intensive search of their backgrounds and also of their prior legal knowledge and experience. This is one of the many reasons Wallin and Klarich has received the highest possible rating by Martindale Hubbell, the only recognized rating system for lawyers in the United States. Feel free to go to the State Bar website and look up any of our highly qualified legal team and you will see that none of our criminal defense attorneys have ever had any prior or pending state bar disciplinary matters. This is a major accomplishment when you factor in that Wallin and Klarich has represented close to 100,000 clients in time of need.
