Volunteer Custodians Needed
The WSBA is seeking interested lawyers as potential ELC 7. 7 volunteer
custodians. An appointed custodian
is authorized to act as counsel for the
limited purpose of protecting a client’s interests whenever a lawyer has
been transferred to disability inactive
status, suspended, disbarred, dies, or
disappears and no person appears to
be protecting the clients’ interests.
The custodian takes possession of the
necessary files and records and takes
action to protect clients’ interests.
The custodian may act with a team of
custodians and much of the work may
be performed by supervised staff. If
the WSBA is notified of the need for a
custodian, the WSBA would affirm the
willingness and ability of a potential
volunteer and seek their appointment
as custodian. Costs incurred may be reimbursed. Current WSBA members of
all practice areas are welcome to apply.
Contact Sandra Schilling at sandras@
wsba.org, 206-239-2118 or 800-945-
9722, ext. 2118 or Darlene Neumann at
firstname.lastname@example.org, 206-733-5923 or
