From the web page of the Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board:
The Disciplinary Board has added a Google Search capability to its website, www.padb.us. The search window, located at the top of the Attorney Information, Consumer Information, and Look Up an Attorney pages (and most pages under those portals), allows a simple search on a name, term, number, or a multiword term, and has some Boolean search capability. The search will locate results on most pages such as the Recent Discipline, Disciplinary Reporter, Frequently Asked Questions, and news items. The Google search feature will retrieve some but not all results from the Attorney Registration database. To assure that users find all available information in the Attorney Registration database, we recommend using the flexible search feature built into the Look Up Attorney page in addition to or instead of the Google search.
It's nice to see a disciplinary system that actually wants consumers and other interested persons to find information about disciplined attorneys. (Mike Frisch)
