One Legal, Inc. - Electronic Court Filing Firm - Launches eFiling Service in San Mateo County.

NOVATO, Calif. -- One Legal, Inc., California's leading court filing and process serving company, has announced that it has launched a pilot electronic filing project in conjunction with the Superior Court of San Mateo County. This is the second California eFiling initiative for One Legal. In August, 2005, the company launched its eFiling service in Contra Costa County Superior Court.

"We are fortunate to be working directly with the courts and the California Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) on setting the groundwork for this important statewide electronic filing initiative. The biggest challenge initially was how to create an easy exchange of information between law firms and the courts," according to Bryan Barringer, National Director of eServices. "Now that the courts and the AOC have solved that challenge, One Legal's goal is to help fuel the growth of electronic services throughout the state by offering solutions for law firms that are easy-to-use, consistent across jurisdictions and affordable," he adds. Through electronic filing, law firms can reduce litigation costs, minimize paperwork and gain greater control.

"The California AOC is also encouraging greater adoption of electronic filing by supporting our efforts to implement the 2GEFS (Second Generation Electronic Filing Specifications) standard, which creates statewide specifications for electronic filing in California," Barringer added.

One Legal is also involved in electronic filing in Texas. As a Certified Electronic Service Provider with eFiling for Courts, One Legal is in the process of rolling out their suite of services throughout Texas. With major metropolitan counties, including Harris and Dallas, already participating in eFiling, One Legal is well positioned to leverage these markets as a leading eFiling service provider. The company has launched an ongoing and strong marketing plan and sales effort to acquire new customers by informing them of One Legal's numerous competitive advantages over other providers.

Within California, One Legal is pursuing additional opportunities to offer its eFiling and eService solution directly to courts and law firms. The company also looks to expand its services to strategic areas of Illinois, Florida and Washington D.C. in the near future.

With 16 years of experience as one of California's leading court filing and process serving companies, One Legal is helping to shape open eFiling and eService standards that foster competition throughout California and the nation.
