Use of the JCC/Project Information Sheet is mandatory for any change of address. The sheet is available HERE
It is strongly recommended that for privacy and safety reasons you use only postal mail and an address other than your home address for your business address. (See Setting Up Your Office article in the efficiency series for new panel attorneys.)
IMPORTANT! Remember to notify the court, your client, and other parties if you change your address. (Cal. Rules of Court, rules 8.32(b) [attorney info on pending cases].)
A Note About Private Mailboxes
A Commercial Mail Receiving Agency (CMRA) is a private business that accepts mail from the U.S. Postal Service for recipients, keeps it for collection (usually a private mailbox, “PMB”), or re-mails it to another location with newly paid postage. Customers are responsible for the expenses associated with the services provided by CMRA stores such as Mail Boxes Etc. Additional information about mail services at CMRAs is available on the U.S. Postal Service’s website HERE
If you rent a mailbox space at a CMRA, the CMRA should provide you with the format to be used for the delivery of your mail. If your incoming mail does not comply with the postal service CMRA regulations, you will not get letters from your clients, documents from the courts, or compensation checks from the State.
