We’re Certified to eFile for You in California

As a certified Electronic Filing Service Provider (EFSP), you can trust we’re compliant with all current eFiling standards. And while compliance is critical, delivering an electronic file & serve system that’s simple to use – from a legal professional’s point of view, not our own – is equally important. That’s why we included legal professionals in the design process of building our easy to use system. The end result? Our electronic file & serve system enables both attorneys and legal support staff alike to quickly place orders for eFiling and eService, easily manage cases and corresponding documents and retrieve Conformed Copies and Proofs of Service anytime.
