Managing legal documents from various courts and agencies can be time-consuming for multi-office law firms. ECFX Notice automates the process of downloading, profiling, storing, and sharing court documents from federal and state ECF systems.
Streamline Your Practice and Improve Client Service
With ECFX Notice, never miss another filing deadline or document. Our system processes ECF notices in real-time, saving your team hours of manual work: no more delays, errors, or overlooked case updates.
Automatically Create Real-time Pleadings Files
Managing notices and court documents from multiple jurisdictions is a significant challenge for multi-office law firms. With every new case, ECF system notices across state and federal courts generate large volumes of filings that need to be processed and shared with case teams.
ECFX Notice seamlessly automates this document management burden. Following existing firm naming conventions, new case filings are downloaded upon receipt, profiled, and saved instantaneously. Case teams gain immediate access to up-to-date pleading files so deadlines are never missed. ECFX Notice alleviates stresses on strained resources so attorneys and staff can excel at client advocacy.

Reduced Repetitive Administrative Work
Processing ECF notices devours hour after billable hour. The responsibility of manually downloading, naming, saving, and routing filings across multiple jurisdictions falls to attorneys and staff.
This disjointed workflow wastes 5-30+ minutes per notice, resulting in delayed processing, duplicate downloads, missed notices, filing errors, misrouted documents, and improper storage. Unbillable administrative work piles up, often amounting to hours lost daily due to tight resources within many multi-office firms.
ECFX Notice delivers game-changing time savings by automating the entire ECF notice processing burden. Give your staff time back to focus on client advocacy and legal strategy. Imagine the productivity gains and bottom-line impact from regained billable hours. These efficiencies keep your team moving forward.
In a recent survey, over 40% of respondents stated the time it takes to save documents when processing ECF notices manually is a significant concern.*
Implementing ECFX Notice can save multi-office law firms the workload equivalent to hiring one or more full-time employees.
Increase Access and Eliminate Missed Notifications
Managing ECF notices across courts is chaotic, with varying rules, formats, and service lists. Emails get missed, and documents can fall through the cracks. Some systems notify only listed attorneys, while others use general firm addresses. Without organization, critical case updates are easily overlooked.
ECFX Notice uniquely handles this fragmentation, automatically processing all ECF notices correctly regardless of jurisdiction. ECFX Notice's unified system updates pleading files and alerts all relevant team members within seconds. Court documents become a source of coordination rather than confusion, and workflows are streamlined across jurisdictions.
