    • Hi Elizabeth. We indicated in our sponsorship post they don’t write policies in California and encouraged those who are in CA to check out Lawyer’s Mutual Insurance in CA. You can find the link in our CO-OP.

    • Elizabeth – I sincerely apologize for any frustration caused by this situation. We pride ourselves on our service and being clear & transparent. As Susan mentions, we will update our information on Solo Practice University to make it more clear, and look for ways to make it even more clear on our site.

      For any other potential applicants interested in applying, please visit the following link for a list of the states where we are registered:

      In addition, the front page of our online application lists the same registered states:

      Again, and to your point Elizabeth: we will make this more clear in all areas where you may be inquiring about ALPS. Should you, or anyone else, have questions of any sort I am happy to talk with you directly.
