    Answered . The California State Bar's website allows you to look up certain information about attorneys, such as whether they are currently licensed to practice law and whether they have a public record of discipline. Go to, and then click on "Attorney Search" to search for an attorney by name.

    In addition, most reputable attorneys these days have websites. Review a prospective lawyer's website carefully, ask lots of questions during an initial consultation, and ask around to find out that attorney's reputation in the community.
