Welcome to the LADB

Pursuant to La. Sup. Ct. Rule XIX, Sec. 8, and the Order of the Louisiana Supreme Court dated April 9, 2020, extending the deadline, every licensed Louisiana attorney was required to file trust account information with this office by August 1, 2020. If you have not completed your Trust Account Disclosure and Overdraft Authorization Form, please do so now.

Submit your trust account information by the close of business on September 9, 2020, to avoid the $25.00 delinquency penalty. To avoid being certified as ineligible, submit your trust account information no later than the close of business on Monday, October 19, 2020. If you are certified as ineligible, a reinstatement fee of $25.00, in addition to the delinquency penalty, will apply.

In 1990, the Supreme Court of Louisiana established the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board, a statewide agency to administer the lawyer discipline and disability system. Members of the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board are appointed by the Court. Both lawyers and non-lawyer citizens are appointed to serve on the Board. Board members volunteer their time in service of the mission of the Board.

The primary purpose of the discipline and disability system is to protect the public. To accomplish this purpose, the agency investigates complaints of lawyer ethical misconduct and makes recommendations to the Louisiana Supreme Court when discipline is warranted.
