California State Bar permits virtual law practice provided "all ethical obligations are met."
Just published State Bar Formal Opinion
provides the ethical framework for the delivery of virtual legal services in California. In anticipation of this important decision and the growing use of internet based legal services, LMIC will be presenting a series of online seminars by nationally recognized authority Stephanie Kimbro. Notably, Ms. Kimbro's work is referenced on the first page of the Opinion. These cutting edge online seminars will be complimentary and available for all of our members this October. In the meantime, if you are providing virtual legal services, make sure you are in compliance with this Opinion.
