THE UTAH STATE BAR VISION

Attorneys creating a justice system that is understood, valued, respected and accessible to all.

Public Resources

For the public.

Find a Lawyer

The Utah State Bar created LicensedLawyer.org to connect you with the lawyer best suited for your needs. You can search for attorneys by legal category, legal needs, attorney name, or cost.

Modest Means Referral

As part of the Bar's Affordable Attorneys for All initiative, the Modest Means Lawyer Referral program helps Utahns with modest earnings find a lawyer offering discounted rates to match their incomes.

Pro Bono Assistance

Making the law accessible to all means connecting lawyers with people regardless of financial status. Find free clinics in your city or access the legal assistance database to search by type of law or location.

Consumer Assistance Program

The Consumer Assistance Program (CAP) is unique among the Utah State Bar programs in that it provides fairly quick and non-invasive assistance to both consumers and attorneys involved in minor conflict with each other.

Volunteer

Lend a learned hand.

Wendell Phillips

I think the first duty of society is justice.

The Utah State Bar believes in serving the public and legal profession with excellence and, in turn, having a substantial impact on the world in which we live. Striving for excellence includes volunteering time and expertise to those who are otherwise unable to access the law due to financial circumstances. The American Bar Association states that a lawyer should aspire to render at least 50 hours of pro bono publico legal services a year. We at the Utah State Bar want to help you achieve excellence in your profession and community. That’s why we provide tools to connect you in the legal profession to individuals

who will benefit from your pro bono services. As you volunteer in your community, you make a substantial impact by simply doing good while reinforcing the idea that this is truly a profession that cares about the community. We have the capacity to unbundle services and take on piece of work. Very manageable, effective pro bono service without having to commit whole life to it.
