ENHANCEMENTS AVAILABLE SEPT. 14 WITH MORE FEATURES COMING THIS FALL

Effective September 14, attorneys may opt for a higher tier of subscription services available from the Court’s new Advanced Attorney Portal. The $100 cost recovery fee (annual subscription) per attorney opens exclusive access to an Advanced Attorney Portal option that saves time and makes your jobs easier:

WHAT’S NEW: Activate a $100 annual subscription to the Advanced Attorney Portal (Effective Sept. 14)
My Cases: Access all your cases for which you are the attorney of record.
My Documents: View all your electronic case documents.
My Calendar: Track your upcoming hearings in the next six months.
My LACC: View upcoming hearings reserved for remote appearances and click on the video link for
easy access (hearings updated daily).
My Delegee(s): Authorize delegees to access case records on your behalf. *IMPORTANT* Attorneys and delegees must sign an agreement, that among other provisions, acknowledges that sharing user accounts with multiple individuals is prohibited. Delegees must register for their own Attorney Portal user account. Delegation is on a case-by-case basis; only the
delegator can renew access.

Sign up now! See below for instructions.

STEP ONE – IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY DONE SO, CREATE YOUR COURT IDENTITY ON THE NEW ATTORNEY PORTAL. IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A COURT ID, GO TO STEP 2.

  • At the Attorney Portal link (https://my.lacourt.org/attorney/#/), create your Court ID. It’s a one-time process.
  • Your Court ID is a single sign-in credential that gives you access to basic features of the Attorney Portal and all features of LACourtConnect (LACC). Each member of your office can also create a Court ID, so they can schedule remote appearances on your behalf.

STEP TWO – USE YOUR COURT ID TO SIGN IN TO THE ATTORNEY PORTAL.

To activate the features of the Advanced Attorney Portal, use your Court ID to sign in (see upper right-hand corner of the Attorney Portal Welcome Page.) After you sign in, your Display Name is visible in the upper right-hand corner, confirming you are signed in.

STEP 3 – VALIDATE YOUR BAR NUMBER TO UNLOCK ACCESS TO SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES.

Validation as an attorney is necessary if you want to take advantage of subscription services available through the Advanced Attorney Portal. To date, thousands of attorneys already have validated their identity! (Note: this step is not required to schedule remote appearances).

After you have signed in with your Court ID, click the blue Validate button:

An agreement document then appears. Check the box to indicate you agree. Enter your bar number. Click the “Send Verification Code Button,” and look for the code in the email inbox you used to register with the State Bar of California. Copy the code from the email and enter it in the Verification Code box. Then click “Verify.”

STEP 4 – PAY FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TO ACCESS ADVANCED ATTORNEY PORTAL FEATURES

After completion of the verification process, you will be prompted to pay for your annual subscription. Enter your credit card information and take advantage of the My Case, My Calendar
and other optional features designed for attorneys!

See details in the next section on additional subscription-based enhancements planned this fall.
