Warning: Potential Email Phishing Scam Targeting Bar Associations’ Members
State bar associations nationwide are reporting that their members have been receiving false notifications indicating that a disciplinary action has been filed against them. The emails appear to have been sent from the association’s office of bar counsel or their local bar association.

ALL correspondence from the Kentucky Bar Association’s Office of Bar Counsel (OBC) regarding the commencing of a disciplinary action will come via the U.S. Post Office. The OBC never uses email to send notice to a member of a disciplinary proceeding.

We suggest that you delete suspicious emails IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT open these emails or click any links. Doing so could result in your computer or device being exposed to a virus. We ask that our members be careful and diligent in regards to this matter.

If you are unsure about an email or a website, please contact us at (502) 564-3795.

KBF Logo Annual IOLTA Compliance
It’s that time of year! Every Kentucky-licensed attorney MUST certify their
compliance under SCR 3.830, which governs IOLTA.


SCR 3.830(13) requires EVERY lawyer admitted in Kentucky to certify their compliance with or exemption from the rule on or before September 1st of each year. The Compliance Certification Form is available on the KBA’s secure website at www.kybar.org/ioltacompliance. Attorneys either provide their Kentucky IOLTA account information or certify their exemption from participating in the IOLTA program. Exemptions are enumerated in SCR 3.830(14). Firms with multiple attorneys are encouraged to submit a single online form on behalf of the firm and simply attach a listing of all of their attorneys. For additional information about the Kentucky IOLTA Fund, including answers to frequently asked questions, visit kybarfoundation.org/iolta.
