If you receive the message,"Service contact is not in your firm.", it is most likely that your Public Service Contact has been attached by opposing counsel.
Example of what a Public Service Contact would look like:
John Doe (123-45) (Your Firm's Name)
To remove your Public Service Contact from a case, you will need to send a request the State for it to be removed. The State has control of the Public Service Contact list. They gather your information from the roll of attorneys.
Follow this link to the state site to request the Pubic Service Contact removal:
There is a rare chance that the opposing counsel created a service contact for you on their own e-filing firm account. (Even though you are not apart of their firm.)
You will see the same message, "Service contact is not in your firm." but the Bar ID number will not be apart of the information displayed.
The simplest remedy is to contact that firm and have them delete your service contact information from their firm's e-filing account.
If it is not obvious who could have created their own service contact for you, just give us a call (866-369-7671) or send us an email (email@example.com). We can help you by working with the e-filing manager and getting that corrected for you!
