CASES REMAINING WITH ATTORNEY AND FORMER LAW FIRM
 
 
 

This form is to be utilized to ensure the Clerk’s Office is notified when an attorney changes law firms. This form exists strictly for the purpose of ensuring accurate CM/ECF noticing. Nothing herein shall be construed to alter the practice regarding proper substitution of counsel in individual cases.

Upon filing of the first Motion to Substitute Counsel, Notice of Substitution of Counsel or other document regarding the change of firm/representation, this form shall be prepared and submitted, if applicable.

All cases associated to the Filing User’s account must be updated, even if the case is no longer active. A representative of the former firm must sign this form and provide the name, mailing address, phone number and e-mail address of another attorney who will take over the cases listed below. To obtain a list of cases associated with the user account, please contact the helpdesk.

Please Read - This form is intended to be used when an attorney is taking cases to a new firm and cases are remaining with the former firm. However, if all cases are moving to a new firm complete the All cases remaining with attorney form OR if all cases are remaining with the former firm complete the All cases remaining with former law firm form.

All areas of this online submission form must be completed in order to be processed. Areas left blank or unanswered could result in a delay or possible rejection.
