Instructions For Requesting Attorney Certificates

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Attorneys who are registered to use the Court’s electronic filing system must now e-file all requests for attorney certificates.  The required fees must be paid online at the time the request is submitted.  If you are not a registered filer, submit a completed “Request for Attorney Admission Information” (Form G-63) and the required fee to the Clerk’s Office as directed in the form.

Four different types of certificates may be requested:  a Certificate of Good Standing, a Certificate re Search for Grievances; a duplicate Admission Certificate; and a Verification of Admission.  Duplicate admission certificates will be sent by U.S. mail within four weeks; all others will be emailed to the requestor within three business days. 

Step-by-step instructions for electronically submitting a request for each type of certificate are provided at the following links:
