What about pro bono for rural Californians? - California. Impoverished persons living in rural areas are often overlooked in the delivery of legal services, despite the prevalence and persistence of poverty in these areas.

What about pro bono for rural Californians? - California

According to the 2000 Census, rural counties with poverty rates above the national average outnumber urban counties in that category at nearly a 5 to 1 ratio. Of the 500 poorest counties in the country, 459 are rural, and, of the 500 lowest per capita income counties, 481 are rural. Despite this overwhelming need for pro bono services, however, rural lawyers have unique limitations on providing such services. These limitations include conflicts of interest, multi-district registration requirements, fewer support staff, and greater travel demands. Staff-based rural legal aid programs face similar difficulties because they cover a wider geographic region with fewer personnel than urban legal aid programs.

In addition, legal services organizations providing services in rural areas face significant funding challenges. Law Library Justice Foundation: About Us. Grayson law librarian's work published.

Dear Members: On Wednesday, March 6, I attended the regular meeting of the State Bar Board of Trustees along with Carol Ludlow and Terri O’Connor from CALDA, and Kerry Spence from CELA (Cost Effective Legal Access).

CAPA (California Alliance of Paralegal Associations) was also represented at the meeting. The Bar voted to authorize one of its committees to study the creation of the “Limited License Legal Technician”, which would be authorized to dispense limited forms of legal advice. I attended in order to represent CALDA and to provide public comment on this proposal. As we already knew would be the case, nothing was actually implemented on Wednesday’s meeting, as the action taken at this meeting was only to authorize the study of this concept.

As I’ve reported before, you can be assured that CALDA will follow these developments closely and will participate vigorously in the coming proceedings. Kind regards, Ian Duncan CALDA President LETTER SENT TO PATRICK KELLY – February 2013. REPORT A LAWYER. Complaints Against Attorneys 800-843-9053 Complaint FormComplaint form (Spanish version) You should register a complaint with the State Bar if you believe that your lawyer acted improperly but not just because there is some disagreement between you or you believe he or she did a poor job.


For such a disagreement, you should pursue alternative methods of settling attorney-client disputes when available. All lawyers who practice in California must live up to ethical standards imposed by the California Supreme Court and the state legislature. As an arm of the California Supreme Court, the State Bar investigates and prosecutes complaints against lawyers. Depending on the seriousness of the offense, a lawyer can be given a warning, put on probation, suspended from practicing law for a period of time or disbarred (prohibited from practicing law in California).

The bar has limited authority to discipline lawyers for such behavior as rudeness or making a single honest mistake.
