Attorney Fingerprinting

March 28, 2018

Fred Thiagarajah

The California State Bar is attempting to pass a new rule whereby all attorneys must get re finger-printed to obtain any criminal information required by state law.  As it stands, all attorneys are required to report the following circumstances to the State Bar – any felony indictment or information, any felony conviction, any misdemeanor conviction committed during the practice of law or where a client was the victim and any misdemeanor conviction involving a crime of moral turpitude, or an attempt / conspiracy / solicitation to commit such crime.  Common crimes of moral turpitude include any crimes involving honesty, such as theft and fraud, but also sex crimes and crimes of domestic violence.
