Request a Certificate of Good Standing
All requests for certificates of good standing, both with and without disciplinary history, are processed through the State Bar’s Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel (CDC). There is a $25 fee per certificate provided.
The CDC no longer accepts faxed or emailed requests for certificates of good standing. All requests may now be ordered either by regular mail (see instructions below) or through the State Bar's new online system by clicking here.
Please allow up to 5 to 7 business days for processing of your certificate. If you are still uncertain as to what you need, please contact this office at (877) 953-5535, ext. 1350.
If you are a law firm requesting certificates for 10 or more attorneys, please email the State Bar of Texas directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions on what is required to place your request.
