On March 9, 1916 a local Bar was organized by 13 attorneys and Judge George H. Buck, the sole Superior Judge of San Mateo County at the time.  The first meeting of 1916 was held at the local Law Library located in the County Courthouse, where the membership of each person was established.  The Honorable George H. Buck was elected president of the San Mateo County Bar Association and held office until 1918.  The San Mateo County Bar Association was incorporated fifty years after its formation on December 13, 1966.

Today, the San Mateo County Bar Association is over 95 years old.  It is a voluntary membership association with approximately 1,400 attorneys.
