It’s renewal time for City-County Building Attorney Identification Cards, and the process has gone online. Starting Dec. 20, 2013, attorneys seeking to renew cards or apply for new cards can do so online at https://www.biz.indygov.org/attorneycards/.
The online process will allow attorneys to more conveniently complete the application and provide necessary documentation, including verification of good standing and photo uploading. Upon completion of the online application, cards can be picked up every Friday from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Court Administrator’s Office (Room T-1221, 12th Floor, City-County Building). A government issued photo ID must be provided when picking up the card. Cards issued beginning Jan. 1, 2014, will be valid until Dec. 31, 2015.
The attorney identification cards, which cost $35, are offered as a privilege to members of the Indiana bar as officers of the court. An authorized attorney identification card may be presented to a court security officer at a security screening station, permitting the attorney to enter a secured area without having his or her person or articles automatically subjected to a search. The Court Administrator’s office must be notified immediately if there is a change in status of the attorney applicant, such as resignation, suspension or disbarment from the practice of law, retirement, or if the card is lost or stolen.
