Resources at the State Bar – New Jersey – California

The New Jersey Judiciary Web site posts a list of “attorneys who have not complied with the mandatory IOLTA program” and are therefore ineligible to practice law. According to this notice issued by the New Jersey Supreme Court lawyers remain on the list until they comply. It’s an extensive collection of names.

The California State Bar pamphlet, What Should I Know If I Am Arrested?, provides very basic information on rights and procedures in the arrest process. The counsel, “If you are arrested for a crime, particularly a serious one, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible”, is not hard hitting, and the document is unlikely to get into the hands of the ones who need it before the hammer falls. But maybe you could pass it along to defendants so they’re better prepared for the next arrest.
