What should be done when an attorney leaves the firm?

When an attorney leaves the firm, both the attorney and the firm need to consider the
implications to the CM/ECF noticing system. For those cases that will remain with the attorney, the attorney needs to electronically file a Notice of Change of Address in all pending cases they have with the Court.

For those cases that will remain with the firm, the firm needs to electronically file a Notice of Substitution of Counsel or a Notice of Change of Counsel to ensure that the Court docket accurately reflects the proper attorney of record and that the new attorney of record is properly set up to receive email notifications.
