Roster | Application
The Client Security Fund (CSF) reimburses clients who have lost money or property due to theft or an equivalent dishonest act committed by a California lawyer acting in a professional capacity. The CSF is overseen by the Client Security Fund Commission.
The Client Security Fund Commission determines whether applications filed with the CSF qualify for reimbursement under the fund’s rules. The commission also makes recommendations to the Board of Trustees on revisions to the fund’s rules, the methods for reviewing applications and the financial and administrative needs of the fund. The Board of Trustees appoints seven members to the commission, including four lawyers and three non-lawyer public members. The members are selected based on how their backgrounds and experience can contribute to the CSF’s goals.
Time commitment: Six meetings per year
