Solo and Small Firm


Welcome to the Solo and Small Firm (SSF) Section of the California Lawyers Association.  The Solo & Small Firm (SSF) Section, originally organized in 1987, provides a forum for solo and small firm practitioners, both specialists and those with a general practice. According to our Bylaws, “small firm” is defined as 5 or fewer attorneys. 

We represent the largest demographic of attorneys in the State of California: solo and small firm practitioners. All are welcome to join as members of the Section. The Section is led by an Executive Committee and provides in-person education, webinars, self-study articles, publications, resources, and affordable state-wide advertising and sponsorship opportunities for solos and small firms.
