Our firm uses File & ServeXpress on a regular basis. We find it to be extremely helpful in managing multi-party litigation. It is a quick and cost effective way to serve all documents in complex litigation matters. It is secure and reliable with excellent customer service. Given the current budgetary concerns, the Courts welcome it as a way to create a more efficient means of managing litigation and it is the legal technology for the future.
