Illinois Has More Lawyers to Serve You

Information released by an Illinois regulatory agency indicates lawyers aren’t in short supply in the state.

The Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission says in newly released data there are now just over 91,000 registered Illinois lawyers. The data includes numbers of registered lawyers through most of 2013. It says their overall numbers rose 2 percent from the year before.

The ARDC also reports it docketed just over 6,000 investigations in 2013. That’s a 5 percent decrease from 2012. More than half of the grievances lodged had to do with allegedly poor attorney-client relations.
