There are a number of attorneys who report that they are not receiving notices of court orders and hearing dates. It is important that you properly e-file your appearance to receive notices.
If you are starting a new case or are filing an appearance, you must be sure that you have added yourself to the case correctly in order to be listed as the lead attorney on your case. And you must also make sure that you are listed as a service contact in that case. If you do not properly file, the appearance the document itself still shows up on the case summary. However, you will not be added as counsel of record and will not receive notices.
We have asked the clerk's office to try to catch these errors and add the attorneys to the record. Ultimately, the responsibility is on the filing party to properly enter their appearance. Here you will find a link to an online tutorial demonstrating the process.
