Frequently Asked Questions: Lawyers
Is there a fee for a lawyer to be specially admitted to practice in the court's bar?
Yes, $150. For other requirements for special admission, see Local Rule 2.02.
How can I obtain a certificate of good standing with the court's bar?
To obtain a certificate of good standing, visit the clerk's office in any division or mail a request to the clerk's office in any division. You must provide your full name, bar number, payment of $19 for each certificate, and, if the request is by mail, a self-addressed, stamped return envelope. If no self-addressed, stamped return envelope is included, the certificate will be available for pickup at the clerk's office. The clerk's office can usually provide a certificate on the spot if you request it in person. If you request a certificate by mail, the clerk's office usually takes 48 hours from receipt to mail it to you.
