Overview of Electronic Services for Attorneys’ Designated FilersConnecticut Judicial Branch e-services
Attorneys registered with the Statewide Grievance Committee and law firms which have obtained a law firm juris number may designate authorized individuals to file case initiation documents on their behalf. A designated filer will have a UserID and a password for use in accessing E-Services to maintain the designated filer’s account and to file case initiation documents electronically in the Superior Court on behalf of the attorney or law firm. Any electronic transactions conducted by a designated filer will be presumed to have been authorized by the attorney and/or law firm whose juris number was used by the designated filer to conduct the electronic transaction.

 

Electronic Services Designated Filer Application Process

A new designated filer may be authorized by the creation of a new designated filer account or a designated filer may be authorized from the list of existing designated filers whose accounts have been already created by other attorneys or law firms. If the designated filer already exists in the system, the attorney/law firm will add the designated filer as an authorized designee.  

  • Designating someone who has not been previously designated:
    • To designate someone who has not been previously designated, the attorney or law firm must create an account for the person;
    • The attorney/law firm must enter data, including the name, address and phone number of the person to be designated.
    • Upon submission of the designated filer application, a confirmation will be displayed on the screen indicating that the designated filer has been authorized to file on behalf of the attorney/law firm and a system-generated password and UserID for the filer will be displayed. This system-generated password and UserID should be provided to the designated filer. 
    • The new designated filer must log in and complete/update the information to activate the designated filer’s account. At the first login, the new designated filer will be required to change the system-generated password.   The password must have:

·          8-10 characters (A-Z);

·          With at least one number (0-9); but

·          No special characters (@, #, &) may be used.

     

  • Designating someone who has been previously designated:
    • To designate someone whose account has already been created by another attorney or law firm, the attorney or law firm must add a designated filer from a list of existing designated filers.
    • The attorney or law firm must locate and select the existing designated filer from the list of active designated filers.
    • The electronic signature of an individual attorney is required to certify the authorization of the existing designated filer.
