As a paralegal, you know that process serving and court filings are essential to the success of any legal case. But you also know how time-consuming and inefficient the process can be, especially with so many process-serving providers out there.
How do you choose the right one for your firm? And once you've chosen a provider, what best practices can you follow to ensure that your process serving and court filing needs are being met efficiently and effectively? How can you reduce the amount of time spent on the entire process serving and court filing process?
As a thought leader in the legal industry, it's important to stay ahead of the curve and apply a best practices approach when it comes to process serving and court filings. With the rise of technology and automation, it's more important than ever to streamline your processes and maximize efficiency. Adhering to a set of best practices can save you time, money, and resources in the long run.
Now You Have a Provider
Once you've chosen a provider, it's important to establish clear communication and expectations from the outset. This means sending your provider detailed instructions regarding the documents that need to be served and any relevant deadlines or timelines. It's also important to establish clear lines of communication, including how and when you will be updated on the progress of your assignments.
Other Best Practices
Another best practice is to take advantage of technology and automation tools that can help streamline the process serving and court filing process.
Providers like Legalex offer advanced technology platforms that allow for seamless bilateral data and document transfer and real-time information updates between your Filevine system, the courts, and the process server in the field. Also, tasks like auto-expensing directly to the client file.
