An earlier blog discussed the need for a definitive list of lawyers and attorneys in the Philippines. That was just a week ago and we contented ourselves with a list of the recent members of the Philippine Bar. But the wonders of technology have allowed us to merge the Roll of Attorneys of the Philippine Supreme Court up to 2003, with the lists of attorneys from the same site from 2004 to 2009, arranged alphabetically for easy searching using Microsoft Excel. The masterlist is by no means an infallibly compete list as it includes lawyers and attorneys who may probably be deceased already or who may not be actively practicing law. Readers may click on the following link for information purposes only, but are encouraged to seek official certification from the Supreme Court of the Philippines or the Integrated Bar of the Philippines if they doubt the credentials of a particular attorney. We are excited about this development, but we have future and rather ambitious plans of coming out with a list of lawyers and attorneys in the Philippines of good standing with both the Philippine Supreme Court and the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, less those who have passed on to final judgment and definitely weeding out those who did not even pass the Philippine bar but who are passing themselves off as lawyers and attorneys.
