Faster and more secure than e-mail, Lawdex SDX allows law firms to send and track all their correspondence over the Web, including court filings, personal service, copy to opposing counsel, records requests, photos, exhibits, and medical and financial data.

Lawdex SDX allows your firm to issue nearly all its legal correspondence securely online. From the Lawdex site, your practice can:

  • File with any state or municipal court in California.
  • Retrieve court records from any nonfederal court in the United States.
  • Serve papers on any corporation or individual in the United States.
  • Correspond electronically with all parties involved in a case, documenting when they received and opened their correspondence.
  • Know “who” saw what “when.”

Maintain attorney privilege while corresponding over the Internet. Correspond through SDX with opposing counsel and all parties and nonparties to a case. Documents never move over e-mail. Instead, e-mail notices bring recipients to view documents securely inside an SDX lockbox. The system captures the ID of recipients, plus the time and date documents are opened. Hundreds of parties can be notified at one time. All correspondence can be rapidly opened, searched, tracked, archived, or associated by case or reference number.

Lawdex is meeting with strong review among legal scholars and professionals teaching practice management and mandatory continuing legal education.

File or serve documents over the Web. Lawdex has partnered with a network of highly accredited attorney service firms. You choose which firm.

These carefully selected professionals can be reached by phone the moment you need them.

Retrieve case records from any state court over the Web. Lawdex partners with a network of accredited attorney service firms that you can choose from.
