How to edit your directory profile

See all IllinoisLawyerFinder help videos

IllinoisLawyerFinder is the ISBA's new online, public-facing member directory. Unique profiles for all ISBA members (except judges and government attorneys; see below) are included at no cost, and members' names and business information is viewable by the public unless they choose to keep it private (see below). 

The public can go to and search the directory to find an ISBA member to serve their legal needs. The new directory is part of a national, online public lawyer directory, which also includes members of the State Bar of Michigan, the Ohio State Bar Association, and the Indiana State Bar Association.

    1. You have the option to choose: (1) Directory Profile Viewable by Public; (2) Directory Profile Only Viewable by Other Lawyers; and (3) No Directory Profile.

Judges and Government Attorneys
