Searchable Index of New Jersey Attorneys Now Online
A searchable index of more than 80,000 attorneys licensed to practice in New Jersey is now available on the Judiciary website, judiciary.state.nj.us, Judge Glenn A. Grant, acting administrative director of the courts, announced today.
“The online attorney index is an important resource,” said Judge Grant. “Consumers can be assured that the attorney they have hired is licensed and eligible to practice in New Jersey. They also can find out where the attorney’s office is located and how long the attorney has been in practice.”
The database includes the date of admission to the bar, the status to practice law in New Jersey, and the county and municipality of the business office of practicing attorneys. Private attorneys, government attorneys, judges and in-house counsel are all included.
To find the index, go to judiciary.state.nj.us and click on the “Legal” tab at the top of the page.
Users may search using the last name and first initial of the attorney they seek.
Attorneys can use the online attorney registration and payment system, found on the homepage of judiciary.state.nj.us, to update professional information.
When a change is made to the attorney's home address or billing address, that change will be reflected immediately in the attorney index. When a change is made to a business address, it is reviewed by Judiciary staff. When approved, the information is available immediately.
