Disciplinary Board Of Pennsylvania Makes Address Change Process Easier For Attorneys
(Lemoyne, Pa.) - The Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania announces an improvement in the way Pennsylvania attorneys submit address changes. Now, attorneys are able to change their address by visiting the Web site, http://www.padisciplinaryboard.org/attorneys/change-address-request/, and submitting the form online.
By providing attorneys with the ability to submit the information electronically, the Disciplinary Board is simplifying the process for attorneys, keeping up-to-date with current technology, and remaining cost efficient. Should attorneys not want to submit the information online, they still have the option to print and mail the form. The Disciplinary Board requires all address changes to be reported within 30 days of moving. In a four to six month period, the Disciplinary Board processes about 7,000 requests.
To access the form, attorneys are required to enter their attorney ID number and the last four digits of their social security number. For those using the online forms, information is submitted immediately.
“We are continually finding new ways to enhance the communications and administrative functions for attorneys and consumers. We are excited to provide a method that’s efficient for everyone involved,” Joe Farrell, Executive Director of the Disciplinary Board said.
