ATLANTA, March 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Legal software company Aderant announced today CompuLaw DocketAlert™ has expanded coverage in Chicago area jurisdictions. DocketAlert allows law firms to directly link CompuLaw matters with the court data. The solution enables law firms to automate yet another error-prone step in the calendaring process, thereby further decreasing risk of a malpractice suit due to missing a court deadline or appearance.
CompuLaw DocketAlert creates a more seamless workflow for law firms by providing a direct link to Chicago area jurisdictions, including the Northern District of Illinois, as well as Cook, DuPage, Kane, Will, McHenry and Winnebago County Courts. Instead of the error-prone task of manually entering dates, court appearances and black line notifications are imported and easily calendared within CompuLaw. Firms also receive email notifications and can run reports of upcoming court calls and case updates.
"Missing a court appearance can be severely detrimental to your case," commented Melissa Notari, CompuLaw DocketAlert Product Manager at Aderant. "DocketAlert allows firms to automatically get this crucial information on the appropriate attorneys' calendars, without having to worry about the risks of manual data entry. By importing court calls directly into CompuLaw, Chicago firms can feel confident their court and matter information is up-to-date and minimize their risk of calendar-related errors."
