Once you have set up an account with a service provider, you will enter your attorney as a Service Contact. If you have a firm account, the firm will have already set up the firm attorneys as service contacts. Here are a few important notes about Service Contacts:
Service Contacts can be included on the Public Directory of Service Contacts. The Public Directory can be used by anyone who wishes to select a contact from the list to serve electronically.
When filing to a case, be sure to select all attorneys of record as Service Contacts connected to that case, including the attorney submitting the filing. Attorneys of record are not automatically connected to a case as a Service Contact.
You may add opposing counsel to a case as a Service Contact by finding that attorney on the Public Directory of Service Contacts. If opposing counsel does not appear on the Public Directory, you must serve conventionally.
You cannot remove an attorney outside of your firm as a Service Contact in a case. You can elect not to serve that contact on a particular filing.
If an attorney withdraws from a case, they must remove themselves as a Service Contact on that case if they wish to stop receiving service in that case.
