What if I think I have an ECF account, but don't know my login and password?

You may check to see if you have an ECF account by going to our web page www.mad.uscourts.gov and clicking on the 'MA-Federal Bar Search'link under Re-Registration menu on the Attorneys page. Search for your name there, and if found, contact the ECF Help Desk at 866-239-6233 or by e-mail at ecfhelp@mad.uscourts.gov - to have the login and password reissued to you.
