NEW JERSEY STATE ATTORNEY ID CARDS

The New Jersey Attorney General’s Office in conjunction with the New Jersey Sheriff’s Association is offering a State Attorney ID Card to any attorney who is licensed to practice law in the State of New Jersey.

The Sheriff’s Department in each county is responsible for issuing the New Jersey State Attorney ID Cards to licensed attorney’s who live or practice in that respective county. These State Attorney ID Cards are recognized in all 21 counties in New Jersey.

These State Attorney ID Cards are issued from the county vicinage where the attorney lives or maintains a law office, however if your county sheriff no longer offers this service and you are located within a reasonable distance to Burlington County, the Burlington County Sheriff’s Department will offer the NJ State Attorney ID Card to out of county attorneys. The card provides identification that the bearer is a licensed attorney in New Jersey, and is accepted in all 21 County Courts Complexes by each County Sheriff’s Department, who provide security screening at each of their respective courts buildings.

In Burlington County, applications must be submitted through the Burlington County Bar Association office, located at 137 High Street in Mount Holly. You do not have to be a member of the Burlington County Bar to submit an application. A $25.00 fee applies for the 5-year Attorney ID card. The Bar Association Office will then fax the approved application to the Burlington County Sheriff’s Department, Community Services Unit office, located in the Burlington County Office Building at 49 Rancocas Road in Mt. Holly. The attorney may then make an appointment to have their Attorney ID Card made, by calling telephone number 609-265-5432.

Applications are available online at the Burlington County Bar Association website by going to: www.burlcobar.org/

or you may fill-in/print out the following NJ Attorney ID Application.

Call the Bar Association office at 609-261-4542 to make an appointment to submit your application and $25.00 fee, or simply mail the application to the Bar Association Office with payment. (Note: The Sheriff’s Department will not accept payments or process the applications directly)

This card will NOT allow the attorney to bypass security screening. However certain counties may have special attorney entrances, if the Sheriff’s Department in that vicinage has the ability to provide one. This card may also be required to gain entrance into secured chambers areas.

Please see map below of the Burlington County Courts Complex showing the Bar Association Office and the Sheriff’s Department locations for obtaining your Attorney ID Card.
