I am changing firms. Do I need to establish a new e-filing login and password?

Attorneys shoud not re-apply for a CM/ECF account. If you change firms, your login remains valid. Every attorney is responsibe for updating address and e-mail information in the "Utilities" option of the CM/ECF. It may be necessary to establish a new PACER login and password, assuming that account belongs to your former employer. A PACER account may be obtained at: http://pacer.psc.uscourts.gov/register.html
