Thank you for your follow up.

Are you planing to maintain your PA Bar license active and also comply with PA CLE requirement?

No I want to appy for retirement certification.
Lawyer: Alex J. Esq., Attorney at Law replied 2 years ago

Thank you for your follow up.

An attorney can switch his/her PA Bar membership into inactive status upon requirement and here is the link to PA Bar website that explains the process:

http://www.padisciplinaryboard.org/newsroom/rules/2009/0616.php

While an attorney who puts his/her license in an inactive status would remain a member of the PA Bar, however, the member would not be eligible to practice law in PA, while the license with PA Bar remains inactive.

I wish you the best of luck!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
