The State Bar was the target of a ransomware attack on the evening of Monday, September 30. The attack disabled all of our computer servers. The State Bar did not pay the demanded ransom. We are making significant progress recovering and restoring our computer systems.
As of October 16, our websites are operational. We are once again able to accept grievance complaints filed online.
If you filed a grievance complaint, fee dispute, authorized practice of law complaint, or Client Security Fund claim, or if you submitted any supporting materials online between September 28, 2019, and October 5, 2019, to ensure the State Bar received it, please refer to this link: click here. This only applies to information and documents submitted to the State Bar online during this timeframe.
The State Bar website may occasionally be out of service while we continue the recovery process. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.
