Locating Attorney Files


When an attorney transfers their status or resigns their membership, they have an opportunity to inform the Oregon State Bar where they will leave their client files.

If you would like to inquire about the location of files for an attorney who is no longer active, please submit your request using the link below. You will be prompted to provide your name, email address, and the name and bar number of the attorney. If you are unsure about their bar number, please use our member directory to obtain that information before submitting your request. We will be unable to respond to your request without this information and incomplete submissions will be deleted.

Please note, the Oregon State Bar does not maintain a list of prepared wills or the names of attorneys who may have prepared a specific will.
