Novato, CA (PRWEB) September 15, 2008
One Legal LLC, the pioneer and leader in online court services, today announced the expansion of its online court filing service to eight additional states. One Legal now offers next-day filing with any court of general jurisdiction in Idaho, Kansas, Maryland, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and Washington using OneLegal.com. This first-of-its-kind service simplifies the state court filing process dramatically by enabling litigation professionals to file documents, pay court fees and receive confirmation without leaving their desks.
OneLegal.com is the ideal tool for filing documents with a local court, and is particularly valuable when filing court documents in other jurisdictions -- whether it be in another county or state. It eliminates the need for litigation professionals to print, sort and prepare documents by hand. It also removes the administrative burden of determining the correct filing fee while reducing the potential of missing a filing deadline.
"One Legal pioneered online court services as the first company in the U.S. to file an electronically transmitted court document with a state court, and we're breaking new ground again today," says Bob Battaglia, CEO and co-founder of One Legal. "Litigation professionals now have a single-source for statewide filing in nine states -- a truly unique capability that was not available prior to today."
One Legal has been providing best-in-class court filing services in California for 18 years and has partnered with CT--the premiere provider of corporate compliance and governance, UCC, matter management, e-billing, litigation support, electronic discovery and trademark research solutions -- to support national court research, document retrieval and filing services. With the support of CT's nationwide network of court fulfillment specialists, One Legal is now enabling litigation professionals to reap the benefits of online court filing with the assurance of a hand-delivered document to the court clerk.
"The expansion of One Legal's court filing service is a major milestone in our partnership and a tremendous value to legal professionals nationwide," said Gene Landoe, president & CEO of CT and Wolters Kluwer Corporate Legal Services. "We are very excited to be working with One Legal to deliver these new, innovative services, and look forward to continued expansion."
This launch makes One Legal the first and only company to provide statewide general civil filing services in nine states. The company currently offers court research, document retrieval and process serving nationally and eFiling and eService in select courts in California and Texas. One Legal is planning to expand its filing coverage to additional states later in 2008 and throughout 2009.
