CIP Portal

We have a portal where we can securely share files with our clients and other parties associated with the case. If a file has been shared with you, you will receive an email notification with the link to the Portal.  It is extremely important that we always have up to date email addresses and phone numbers.  Once you get the email, there, you must create an account to view and download any files that have been shared with you. If you receive an email notification about a portal document and you were not expecting a file or received the wrong file, please contact us immediately so that we may resolve this issue.

To create an account, you need to have at least one file shared with you by our office. You will receive a notification when a file has been shared with you at the email address we have on file. IMPORTANT: For security reasons, you must use the same email address you received the notification at when creating your account. All fields on the account registration page are required and should meet the following requirements:
