Why Your Law Practice Needs SmartRules While You Work From Home

The world may be in a state of flux as countries grapple with the coronavirus but your law practice can remain steadfast and uninterrupted with online tools. From time tracking software to online conferences, there are numerous tools to remain productive while working remotely, or, if your staff needs to remain at home under self quarantine.

SmartRules is a great solution for legal research and drafting pleadings accurately and swiftly – in fact, your legal assistant can access a solo membership from a mobile phone. SmartRules is an excellent online legal technology choice which can be accessed from home by attorneys, legal assistants, paralegals, and legal secretaries.

Here are 3 Reasons Your Law Practice needs SmartRules today:

1) Everything One Place

SmartRules is an intuitive and easy-to-use yet highly sophisticated legal technology product offering  task-based guides for drafting pleadings.

Our instructions for court compliant pleadings reflect the latest version of every relevant code, rule, or statute.

SmartRules only asks you two questions to provide a wealth of legal research and knowledge:

– What court are you working in?

– What do you want to do?

You can search at no charge on our search page.

Once you answer those two questions, you will have a task-based guide in seconds.

Here is one example – drafting and filing a complaint in the Superior Court of Los Angeles County.

This preview guide shows everything you, or your legal assistant/paralegal, needs to know about drafting and filing a complaint in Los Angeles, including pleading rules, special requirements, timing, form, format, and filing – including electronic filing.

2) You Can’t Afford a Mistake

SmartRules guides are monitored by our Editorial and Technical Teams on a 24/7 basis. With our extensive network of resources, we are on the front line of any changes to the rules, codes, and statutes pertaining to guides in the jurisdictions within our coverage area.

A seemingly minor mistake such as improper formatting, failed electronic filing, or a timing error resulting in a missed deadline can be irreparable. Judges can impose sanctions – and hard-won clients can change their legal counsel.

With SmartRules, you can be confident and assured that you are working with the most up-to-the-minute version of local, state, and federal rules. When the rules change, we take the content down immediately, and replace it with the current version.

3) Increase Billable Hours and Save Time

SmartRules enables you to harness the combined power of legal research hours spent by us, not you, on multiple sources. This translates into no wasted time trying to extract information from court clerks, or wading through court websites, case law, and other legal research sources, then interpreting how the rule changes pertain to your pleading.

Clients often pay $150 an hour for a paralegal’s time, not to mention hundreds of dollars for an attorney’s time, yet SmartRules will cost you as little as $67 per month. Our product will enable you to increase your caseload, your productivity – and your income – through increased billable hours.
