Comprueba los antecedentes disciplinarios de un abogado

Aunque no haya realizado nunca una investigación sobre una persona ni se le haya pasado por la cabeza, en ocasiones conviene realizar una pequeña investigación antes de contratarlo.

Cada estado supervisa a los abogados que ejercen en su territorio, las quejas que les han puesto y la vigencia de sus licencias. En los siguientes enlaces puedes conocer los antecedentes disciplinarios de un abogado y si es elegible para ejercer la abogacía y ha sido disciplinado en el paso.
