Clients’ Security Fund

The Clients’ Security Fund was created by The Florida Bar to help compensate persons who have suffered a loss of money or property due to misappropriation or embezzlement by an attorney.

Follow these steps before filing a claim.

  • Is the attorney currently eligible to practice law? Not sure?
    Use the Find A Lawyer search to determine eligibility status.

The Clients’ Security Fund will not consider a claim against a member who is in good standing and eligible to practice law. Discipline in the form of a suspension or disbarment is a prerequisite to a claim being considered unless the attorney is deceased.
