The Clallam County Bar Association is a nonprofit professional organization in Clallam County, Washington. Lawyers in Clallam County, on the north Olympic Peninsula, including Port Angeles, Sequim, and Forks, are members of the Clallam County Bar Association. These attorneys formed this local bar association to:


    • Improve the administration of justice;
    • Encourage the availability of legal services for all members of our community, regardless of the financial ability of the client or the popularity of the position to be advanced;
    • Promote professional competence and ethical conduct of lawyers;
    • Increase public understanding of the legal system;
    • Enhance service to the members of the Association, including opportunities for professional growth and satisfaction in practicing in the legal profession;
    • Manage efficiently the work of the Association
