Frequently Asked Questions
I need an attorney. How can I find one?
While the State Bar of Arizona is not permitted to provide any legal advice or referrals to lawyers, you can use the "Find a Lawyer" feature on this website to find a lawyer by name, area of practice or office location. All attorneys who are members of the State Bar of Arizona are listed on the State Bar's website. Check the "activity" information to see if the lawyer has ever been disciplined.
