William B. Esq. :

Dear Customer, thank you for using our service. My name is Bill and I would like to assist you today.

William B. Esq. :

While the bar admissions rules for each state are very specific (some states such as California do not have any reciprocity with any other state, while others such as Washington, Oregon, and Idaho have a mutual reciprocity after an attorney licensed in one of those three states has practiced without negative action for a period of 5 years), in general, the admission standards as set (such as what type of accreditation is required) are fairly inflexible. An attorney that works with state bar disciplinary matters would be the ideal attorney to assist you with contesting any admissions issues as they have the most familiarity with the bar regulations as well as the individuals responsible for making these decisions.

William B. Esq. :
