To better protect our systems and data, we are improving our security, which includes the implementation of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) in the Lawyer Portal.
Two-step login makes it much more difficult for intruders to use your identity to access systems.
Even if your password has been stolen, the second step in the login process will prevent someone from logging in.
You must complete the new MFA steps to access your Lawyer Portal account.
Decrease the impact of identity theft and compromises to your account.
Use your smartphone, tablet, or landline phone to confirm your login requests.
Get notified if your password is stolen as soon as someone unknown to you tries to log in.
Allow MFA to trust your browser for up to 90 days.
An additional feature of this upgrade is the implementation of the Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR). The setup of this feature requires one extra step in adding a secondary verification method, which will allow us to introduce the SSPR.
SSPR makes it easier to manage your own password in the future.
Note: If you cannot remember your password, select Forgot my password and a new window will open to reset your password. Follow the steps.
This is the recommended method because the app is the most secure verification method.
After you have set up the MFA, you will now add a secondary contact method to complete the Self-Service Password Reset process.
Example: The primary method is your phone number and an email is your chosen secondary method:
All done! You will see a message showing that you have successfully completed the Multi-Factor Authentication and Self-Service Password Reset set up.
You may now log into your Lawyer Portal account.
After entering your username and password, you will be asked to verify your identity with the MFA option (app or phone number).
If you verify through the app:
If you verify through your phone number:
