Lawyers' Fund for Client Protection
To promote public confidence in the administration of justice and the integrity of the legal profession, the Lawyers' Fund for Client Protection Board was established for the purpose of relieving or mitigating a pecuniary loss sustained by any client. The loss may be due to the dishonesty of, or failure to account for money or property entrusted to, any member of the WSBA in connection with the member's practice of law or while acting as a fiduciary in a matter related to the member's practice of law. The Fund is funded by an annual assessment of members of the WSBA by order of the Washington State Supreme Court. Read about the history of the Board.
