Need to find out if an attorney is admitted to the Southern District?
A question was posed to me this morning, how to find out if an attorney is admitted to the USDC, Southern District….
Here is one way to do it:
You will need the attorneys last name and their bar number. If you don’t have it, look them up on Florida Bar first (http://www.floridabar.org). Once you have the two pieces of info, go to http://www.flsd.uscourts.gov/website/attyadm/barlookup.asp and enter it there.
If the attorney is admitted, it will tell you something like: __________________(name) has been a member of the Southern District of Florida general bar since xx/xx/xxxx.
If the attorney is not admitted, it will say: Please be advised that you do not appear on the roll of attorneys admitted to practice before the United States District Court, Southern District of Florida.
You can also speak to the USDC Southern District’s Admissions Clerk by calling 305-523-5265 and choosing Option 6.
