LegalConnect Press Release

CHINO HILLS, CA – May 5, 2020

LegalConnect, a premium legal technology company, today announced its partnership with First Legal, a leading attorney services and litigation support company, to serve as First Legal’s integrated eFiling solution for all California eFiling courts. This partnership enables First Legal and its customers to seamlessly launch and manage an eFiling directly from First Connect, First Legal’s eFiling portal, using LegalConnect’s application programming interface (“API”) and eFiling workflows to the courts.

Alex Martinez, Chief Executive Officer at First Legal, shares, “It is our vision to be a leader in the court eFiling space. The transformation and enhancements to First Connect, First Legal’s proprietary eFiling portal, allow clients to submit documents to the court at the push of a button while eliminating the need for a credit card, as required by most of our competitors. The built-in error checking logic saves clients time and money associated with higher rejection rates on other portals. Pooling our capabilities and experience with the vast features and benefits of LegalConnect’s platform is an obvious next step in achieving our vision. Our combined resources ensure a solution that meets and exceeds clients’ expectations as California courts continue to transition to electronic filing.”

“At LegalConnect, we are focused on how we can maximize our partners’ business outcomes such as increasing operational efficiency, improving cost control and helping them better serve their law firm clients,” said David Nill, CEO of LegalConnect. “Moreover, we’re always looking for opportunities to fulfill our vision of connecting the legal community for seamless electronic document, information and payment exchange. The LegalConnect and First Legal partnership helps us to achieve both these objectives and further solidify ourselves in the burgeoning legal ecosystem. LegalConnect is currently integrated with 21 courts and counting, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Orange County.”
