The membership directory of the PWCBA is accessible online through a series of searchable indexes which allow members and non-members alike to search for a member of the PWCBA by last name or by firm name. Select the last name option, fill in the blank with the attorney’s last name and the search will return the attorney’s name, firm name, city and zip code. Then click on the attorney’s name and full contact information will be provided. Additional information such as law school attended, year licensed, practice areas of law, states licensed in, professional affiliations, and special training or services provided by the attorney, may also be available. Direct links to attorney websites are also provided when available
Select the firm name option, fill in the blank with the firm name or any portion of the firm name you know, and the search will provide all the attorneys listed with the firm. Again, click on an individual attorney’s name and additional information will appear.
Search the directory.
For those PWCBA members who prefer to have a full membership directory available for their use, the PWCBA produces an annual membership directory
that is made available in electronic format to members in good
standing, and to select court services personnel. Directory
listings include members’ photos where available, and may include the following helpful information for each
attorney: name, address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses
and web addresses, law school attended and year licensed, special
services or training available through the attorney's office,
legal professional affiliations, states licensed in, and areas
Another helpful feature of the PWCBA membership directory is an index by practice area of law, contained in the back of the directory. The directory is a benefit of membership and is
intended to facilitate communication within the Bar and to promote
member-to-member referrals. To obtain a copy, contact the PWCBA
As an attorney and counselor at law, clients
come to you seeking advice on a variety of issues. You may find
in the course of working with a client, that their needs go

which is available in hard copy or on line. This "Quick
Guide" provides the names and phone numbers of selected
agencies that provide frequently requested human services in
Northern Virginia. To order your personal copy of this helpful
reference guide, call 703-642-0777. To use the guide on line,

The PWCBA maintains a Listserv. All members
in good standing of the bar are eligible to participate. To
sign-up, simply email a request to email@example.com,
and the list administrator will add your email address to the
You are encouraged to use the PWCBA Listserv
to share practice pointers, communicate about court procedures
(particularly for venues outside Prince William), seek and make
referrals to colleagues, and generally network. The bar will
also, from time to time, post messages on the Listserv.
Your e-mail address will not be made available
by the Bar to outside persons or entities and will never be
used for commercial purposes.
To post a message, send an e-mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Your message
will be sent to everyone on the list.
To reply to a message, to the person who sent you the message by selecting "reply." This is the preferred method of responding. If your response would be of interest to the entire listserv, select “reply all” and your response will be sent to the entire list.
To unsubscribe, simply send a message
to email@example.com with the
word "unsubscribe" typed in the subject line. You
will automatically be removed.
Those choosing to use the service should
keep a couple of points in mind:
First, any e-mail message can be forwarded
or copied to anyone else, member or non-member, friend or foe.
Members should use good judgment and discretion in making postings.
There should be no expectation of confidentiality in postings.
Client identities should be protected and nothing of confidence
should be revealed.
Second, users should reply privately to postings
unless the nature of the issue would tend to be of benefit to
the membership generally. The listserv should be viewed as a
resource and not a chat room.
Third, the Bar assumes no responsibility for the content of messages posted by individuals.
Finally, this is a relatively new service.
We are learning by doing. Please be patient and let us know
of any suggestions for improvement or concerns about the service
by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
