, today announced the launch of a new service on OneLegal.com that enables attorneys to serve documents electronically (eService) on all attorneys and parties for cases in the Sonoma County Superior Court. Thanks to the foresight of the Sonoma County Superior Court and the Sonoma County Bar Association, legal professionals can now use OneLegal.com to serve documents on one or more parties quickly, securely and cost effectively.
OneLegal.com enables attorneys and their staff to easily transition to a more efficient, paperless environment. Parties simply request eService of documents be permitted for a case by completing and filing a court-approved Stipulation and Order form with the judge. Once filed, registered OneLegal.com users can begin eServing documents immediately. In addition, One Legal has agreed to file Stipulation and Order forms on behalf of its customers free if they use OneLegal.com for eService – streamlining an already simple process even further.
"The Bench Bar Section of the Sonoma County Bar Association and the Sonoma County Superior Court worked closely together to implement a new voluntary eService program which is now available in all cases filed in Sonoma County,” said Lewis Warren, Chairperson of the Bench Bar Section, Sonoma County Bar Association. “We encourage the use of eService in all cases and are excited about the efficiencies and cost savings it will provide."
OneLegal.com is the most efficient way to file and serve pleadings, discovery and other documents. It eliminates the cost and burden of printing, copying, collating, preparing and serving documents by mail or by courier. Using OneLegal.com, legal professionals can electronically serve an unlimited number of documents on an unlimited number of parties simultaneously in a single transaction for one flat fee – affording users incredible time and cost savings.
Verifiable notification is made available online instantly and any documents that are electronically served are stored in a secure repository where they can be viewed or downloaded at no additional cost. Parties that opt-in to the voluntary eService program are notified via email when new documents have been served, and can login to OneLegal.com to securely access the documents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Users can manage all of their served documents using a single, secure, online application.
“We are honored to have been selected to help facilitate the Sonoma County Superior Court’s eService program,” says Jeff Karotkin, Vice President of Strategic Development of One Legal. “It underscores the high quality nature of our court filing and process serving services and our commitment to increasing customer value through continuous innovation.”
