What is the Preferred Browser to use with Portal
What is elevated access?
Elevated access allows the District Clerk’s Office and/or County Clerk’s Office to grant specific user groups access to an increased level of information. Currently, this applies to Attorneys with increased access to Party Information including the ability to see all attorneys on a case, not just the lead. Other groups with current elevated access include Justice Partners such as Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson, Office of the Attorney General, Department of Family Protective Services, Medical Examiner’s Office, and others. Access levels and roles are controlled by both the County Clerk’s Office and District Clerk’s Office.
As an attorney, when I search by my name, I see no cases.
As an attorney, to see all cases or hearings it is best to search with bar number, removing any leading zeros when searching with a bar number.
Is a separate request for elevated access required for County Clerk’s Office and District Clerks Office?
Yes. Each Clerk’s Office works independently and may have different rules, qualifications, or business uses for elevated access.
