ATTENTION ATTORNEYS: If you already have an EDNY e-filing account, please do not request a new one through Pacer. If you are attempting to link your ECF account to your Pacer account and do not know your ECF login and password, please call the court at 718-613-2285 (Brooklyn) or 631-712-6010 (Central Islip).

 

1.  In order for an attorney to apply for admission or to file in the Eastern District of New York, you must Obtain your own individual PACER account or upgrade your existing PACER account.   Each attorney MUST have his/her own individual PACER account.  If an attorney does not yet have an individual PACER account, the attorney must create one.  To register for an individual PACER account, go to www.pacer.gov and click on 'REGISTER'.  PACER accounts issued prior to August 11, 2014 must be upgraded, go to www.pacer.gov, 'Manage My Account', and login with the attorney's current PACER credentials.   Attorneys who work part-time for a Government entity such as Corporation Counsel and currently have two CM/ECF accounts (to keep their private practice and Corp Counsel e-mails separate) - you will need two separate PACER accounts. 

2.  Apply for Attorney Admission - Attorneys may apply for regular admission to the Eastern District of New York, or may apply for pro hac vice admission on a particular case in whole or in part.

3.  CJA Panel Attorneys - CJA Panel Attorneys will need only one PACER account for filing and viewing in NextGen.  If you have a separate exempt CJA account now, those exempt privileges will need to be added to your individual upgraded PACER account. 

4.  PACER Administrative Accounts ('PAA') - To help manage attorney accounts and have individual accounts centrally billed, Law Firms may centralize PACER billing through a PACER Administrative Account (PAA).   To register for a PAA, please visit:  https://www.pacer.gov/reg_firm.html. If you have questions about PACER, click HERE for a list of FAQs

5.  LINK your PACER account with your Legacy CM/ECF Account. 
If you are an attorney who does not intend to file in NYED you do not need link or request an e-filing account.
