Does the court charge an annual attorney registration fee?


Yes. Effective November 1, 2020, the court began charging a triennial fee of $45.00.  This fee is applicable to all admitted attorneys (excluding government, public defenders, and pro hac vice) who have been admitted for at least three years.  The renewal fee will be charged every three years from the date of admission or three years after the last renewal payment.
