Traditional Paper Discovery & Review

Our repository software can also help reduce costs of paper discovery and review as a result of the manner in which trial teams typically work.

When boxes of documents are received at a typical law firm, one or more lawyers and paralegals typically go through the documents, usually in fits and starts, either making no notes or making cryptic notes on a legal pad or on the documents themselves. None of these comments are typically captured in a way that justifies the time and expense involved, both because it isn't done in an organized and methodical fashion, and because it isn't readily available to other members of the trial team. This process typically happens more than once during the life of the case.

Replacing Printed Discovery with Electronic Discovery

The client at this initial stage has typically already paid to make one copy of the documents to give to the lawyer. The lawyer typically holds this set as the master copy, so another copy is immediately made to use as a working copy. If the client is a corporation with a legal department, someone in the legal department typically makes a working copy as well. At this point the client has paid for three sets of copies, and all the value that the client has received is having three sets of documents. The cost per page at this point (using an average of $.10 - $.15 per page for a copy) will typically total from thirty cents to forty-five cents.

Now the lawyers and paralegals begin going through the documents, billing the client for their time, and capturing nothing in an organized, goal-driven fashion. Then more copies are made for each deposition, for each expert witness, to replace lost copies or copies that are unusable because of marks placed on them by lawyers and paralegals, to produce to other parties in the case, to attach to motions filed with the court, to take to hearings in court, and for trial. It is estimated, in a typical case, each document will be copied ten or more times, and the cost to the client will range from one dollar to one dollar and fifty cents.

Instead, by placing the electronically stored information (ESI) or scanned images online in Trial Solutions' own electronic discovery software, each document can be located instantaneously. Now the review process can begin, but the documents are viewed on screen, and the person viewing the document can make comments regarding it, link it to issues in the case, link it to witnesses in the case, enter information into the database, or determine that it is privileged and should therefore be designated as such. This is all done with easy to use templates. There is no need for programmers or highly tech-savvy assistance. Even technology adverse lawyers can handle our Electronic Discovery software with only a few minutes of training.
