Phishing Alert: Suspicious Emails Targeting California Licensed Attorneys

Phishing Alert: Suspicious Emails Targeting California Licensed Attorneys

The State Bar of California has learned of a phishing scam targeting attorneys licensed in California and is warning attorneys to beware of suspicious emails.

The recent phishing attempt claims to be from the California Bar Association, which is a fictitious organization. The emails claim that attorneys need to pay a license renewal fee or face suspension and contains links to suspicious websites. This is not an official email from the State Bar and attorneys are advised not to click on the links.

The State Bar encourages attorneys to only respond to official emails from State Bar email addresses (emails ending in @calbar.ca.gov) and that link to State Bar websites (calbar.ca.gov).

When in doubt, attorneys can go to the State Bar of California website directly, www.calbar.ca.gov. Attorneys can also email AttorneyRegulation@calbar.ca.gov or call 888-800-3400.
