Certificates and Forms

Certificate of Good Standing


Acting with an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our staff, Member Services will be transitioning to remote availability only effective March 13, 2020. During this time, the D.C. Bar will only accept requests for electronic Certificates of Good Standing and have suspended production of all printed Certificate orders. Orders for the electronic delivery Certificate should still be placed online by logging into your member account.

Electronic delivery orders are automatically generated and sent in PDF format via email within minutes.  The documents may also be downloaded for up to thirty days after the order is placed by logging into your D.C. Bar member account online.

If you require assistance logging into your account or have any questions, contact Member Services via email to [email protected] or call 202-626-3475.

We value your Membership and thank you for your understanding.

Certificates of Good Standing Are Now Offered Electronically! 

In July 2019, the D.C. Bar became the first mandatory bar to offer online order and fulfillment of Certificates of Good Standing.  You may now order certificates through your member account and receive an email attachment immediately. We will continue to issue paper certificates with both mail and pick-up options available.  Our new online service also allows you to have your Certificate emailed or mailed to a third-party without any additional phone calls or emails!  Your Certificate will also be available for download within your online member account for up to 30 days.
