Attorney Guidelines

Find a Local Lawyer near You

Attorneys are subject to a great deal of rules and regulations.  A licensed attorney must abide by the laws of the state in which he or she practices, as well as any rules set up by the courts in his or her county. 

Some lawyers also receive special certifications issued by their state for particular areas of law, like criminal, family, wills & trusts, and personal injury. 

It is helpful to understand the Court systems attorneys operate in so you can protect your interests and limit the attorney fees you pay.
