Add Yourself to the Public Service Contact List

The Texas Supreme Court issued an order in June 2016 requiring that all Texas attorneys provide the State Bar of Texas with an electronic service email address for use in the statewide e-filing system and for other important communications

Go and provide the email address you would like to use as your electronic service address. Electronic service addresses will be active for the efiling system on October 1, 2016 and will only show those addresses in the public list. If you do not update your electronic service address by that date, then your preferred State Bar of Texas email address currently on file with the State Bar will be used as your electronic service address.
