BISHOPVILLE, MD, November 15, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ — While many law firms are watching the market plummet as their workload increases, Monheit Legal Source offers a turn-key solution that requires neither the knowledge nor the cost one would think it takes to keep up with today’s fast-paced electronic research, discovery & exhibit production race. In this trying economy many firms are finding themselves in a position with reduced staffing, expertise and/or technology necessary to field a particular case in litigation and at trial.
Monheit states, "Outsourcing to Monheit Legal Source can save money and time while increasing chances for success because we provide the cutting-edge, affordable litigation support that firms need to create those winning cases–and all of this without hiring, training, managing and compensating a full-time employee."
When relying on staffing agencies to fill these temporary yet sorely needed positions, law firms are frequently faced not only with the uncertainty of the quality work they will get for their money, but also the inflated hourly rates for an unknown, untested contract attorney. This is where MLS can help, by providing affordability, high-level consistency, reliability and quality. MLS is a strong & lean company focused on a specialized set of services where clients pay much less because there are no hidden, superfluous costs that many larger operations carry.
Monheit states, "For me that meant pulling on my intensive legal experience and combining that with my information technology abilities to form a cost effective, smart win-win solution for the law firms who need the support most right now. Having experienced first-hand an overburdened caseload combined with a shortage of staff, money and technology, I combined the necessary education in current legal information technology with my litigation experience, and then partnered with Jenifer Jurden, a 27 year veteran of marketing & production management."
MLS’ business model relies on (1) an attorney with extensive conventional litigation practices, (2) an attorney with extensive and current legal information technology skills, and (3) a case manager with extensive presentation and exhibit production skills ranging from print to electronic.
"I realized the necessity to get up to speed with legal technology, such as research and e-discovery products Fastcase, Westlaw, LexisNexis Concordance & Concordance Image, CaseSoft and Adobe Acrobat Pro, just to name a few. I then combined these innovative legal IT skills with my 18+ years experience with the traditional legal skills of research & writing, document review, organization & summation, and litigation presentation & exhibit creation. At this point it became evident to me that the only thing I was missing was exhibit production management."
Thus enters Jenifer Jurden, 27 year veteran of production, vendor and account management, with responsibility for budgets, deadlines, staff & vendor management processes & procedures, and new technology research & implementation. Jurden states, "Having managed 25 production managers who were responsible along with me for marketing in excess of 300 million pieces annually with purchases in excess of $20 million, I have the necessary skills to move a project from the conceptual to production to presentation."
With Monheit and Jurden at the helm joining experience with state of the art technology, MLS brings the needed hi-tech know-how that will not only save law firms money, but will help make each case more productive and more profitable.
