Output your document pool into any format you require. We can create load files for any litigation support program. We can also OCR the document pool so it is then searchable.

Document Depository Services. We will house your case-wide document pool in both an online depository and an on-site physical depository in our office. The online depository is accessible from anywhere in the world you can connect to the Internet. At our on-site depository, parties can view both physical documents and documents on computers. We reproduce documents on CD, DVD, hard copy and can upload online.

Our scanning services produce digital images of your paper documents on CD, DVD, thumb drives, hard drives and online. Your documents can then be printed, e-mailed, used for presentation purposes, archived, and searched by key words.
