Background check on an attorney

Recommended Posts

How does one go about getting a background check on an attorney that you are thinking of hiring?   And what if they had an expunged would there be any way to find  out any information on that even if it was in a different state ?

I'm not thinking of hiring an attorney, but there are innumerable companies that will conduct "background checks" on anyone you like.  Such companies are easily found by googling.

"Expunged" typically means that a person was convicted of something but that records relating to that conviction are unavailable to the general public.

As mentioned above there are a large number of companies that will run a criminal background check for you for a fee.  It doesn't matter what state you are the person you are checking is in.

 

Google will find many.

What state is this in? 

 

You probably can check on the state bar association website to see if there has been any disciplinary action taken against this attorney in the past for unethical conduct.

 

You can look up county court case records online for that county to see if he has ever had criminal charges filed against him in the past.
