Only your correct name may be used on the official register. Your business address and related information are required on the application.
Published Directory Address
The address you supply is considered your published directory address and will be used for State Bar purposes, including all mailing lists and directory listings unless otherwise requested. When you provide an email address, it will be published in the member directory (unless otherwise noted) and used periodically to communicate with you.
If you are currently seeking employment as an attorney and do not have a business address, your residence address may be used for your published directory address. When employment is obtained, you may submit an address change through the State Bar website or by sending a request in writing.
If your published directory address is a post office box, you must provide a street address of your business or residence. Any member can provide a secondary address to be used for Bar Journal, section mailings, and general correspondence (such as refunds and suspension letters).
