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
email@example.com, 206-239-2118 or 800-
945-9722, ext. 2118 or Darlene Neumann
at firstname.lastname@example.org, 206-733-5923 or
800-945-9722, ext. 5923.
