Clients’ Security Fund Committee

The Clients’ Security Fund (CSF) Committee, which includes 12 members plus one liaison from the Board of Governors, provides reimbursement to clients sustaining loss due to their attorneys’ dishonest act. The Fund is a fund of grace not of right (per SCR 85).

Typical CSF claims involve issues of personal injury law, bankruptcy, probate/guardianship and criminal issues. Each member can expect to commit approximately 30 hours annually to CSF committee duties, in addition to two half-day meetings each year.  Ideal candidates will have diverse backgrounds in more than one area of law.
