All Ohio attorneys must register with the Ohio Supreme Court every odd-numbered year.

Ohio attorneys are reminded to register for the upcoming biennium by September 1.

Ohio Supreme Court Office of Attorney Services Director Susan Christoff said all attorneys on active or corporate status must register with Attorney Services and pay a $350 registration fee every odd-numbered year. Christoff said attorneys who fail to register and pay the fee by the September 1 deadline or within the late registration period will be suspended. The registration fee has not increased since the 2007/2009 registration period, Christoff noted.

Active and corporate attorneys should expect to receive a packet of registration materials in early July that will contain instructions on how to register and a form to verify the accuracy of their contact information, including a current residence, office, and email address.

Attorneys can register either by mail or electronically. Mailed registrations will be deemed timely if postmarked by September 1, or earlier. Online registrations must be completed by 11:59 p.m., September 1 to be deemed timely.  Attorneys who successfully complete the process will receive confirmation by mail. Those who do not receive confirmation should contact Attorney Services.

To make the registration process easier, attorneys can also click on the “Biennial Attorney Registration” button on the front page of the court’s website. The button is located on the right-hand side of the page and will take the user directly to the Online Attorney Services portal. From there, the user should click on the “Access Online Attorney Services” link.

Attorneys have a continuing obligation to keep the Supreme Court apprised of their most current residence, office and email addresses to ensure registration and other materials are timely received. Attorneys may update their own records online or mail the changes directly to Attorney Services.
