Attorneys and their staff with questions regarding ethics issues and the Rules of Professional Conduct can contact the Office of Bar Counsel for informal guidance during any business day. The phone number for the State Bar’s ethics hotline is (702) 382-2200 or toll free (800) 254-2797.
Each day, a State Bar attorney is assigned to take calls from Nevada-licensed attorneys and lawyers from other jurisdictions with questions about the legal profession in our state. Although the Office of Bar Counsel makes every effort to return all calls by the end of the day, our attorneys try to take calls as they come in or, if a message is left, to call back within an hour.
If you have an urgent question, such as a situation which is occurring in court at that moment, and you are referred to our attorney’s voicemail, please feel free to hang up, call back and ask for immediate assistance. Our office assistants will try to find another attorney to handle your question immediately.
