Finding the right attorney service provider is crucial to maintaining a successful legal practice. Because litigation support is a burgeoning industry however, practitioners in California have no shortage of attorney service providers to choose from. While the number of options may seem overwhelming, choosing a good provider is fairly simple. To filter through all the noise, there are three factors to consider: communication, expertise, and service offerings.
Communication is the most important quality to consider when choosing an attorney service provider. By using a litigation support provider, you’re trusting a third party to fulfill your court filing and process serving orders expeditiously on your behalf. Good communication is essential in this environment. Good providers maintain open lines of communication with their clients, such that they are readily available to handle on-demand needs and their clients are looped into the status of their pending orders.
Another factor to consider is the service provider’s expertise. The California Superior Courts generally have different rules governing court filings at their respective courts and process serving is regulated statewide by the California Code of Civil Procedure. Ideally, your attorney service provider will be well-read on all these rules so that incorrectly formatted filings will be caught before they are dispatched and every service of process is completed successfully.
The last thing to consider are the attorney service provider’s service offerings themselves. Several litigation support providers limit their service offerings in some capacity, either by type or location. For firms filing statewide, this can make order management a massive headache. To that end, finding an attorney service provider that offers a full suite of services statewide is very important.
Finding a good service provider might seem daunting, but it’s essential for any firm looking to grow its practice.
