From corporate lawyers to criminal attorneys, anyone in the legal profession knows the endless amount of legal documents for one single case. Business litigators have to collect company records and corporate communications. Personal injury lawyers have to gather and manage medical records, as well as damages documentation. Employment litigators are responsible for obtaining the client’s personnel file, disciplinary documents, and more alike.
The volume of data and documents can seem overwhelming to keep track of and store correctly and safely. Cataloging and tagging case document after case document is not only time-consuming but expensive. The solution: turn your case catalogs digital. Case files and legal documents are the frameworks of the entire trial. From evidence and depositions to presenting elements of each case, case catalogs are a vital part of each case.
No more hard copy records
Organization skills are an important trait when entering the legal profession. However, it can be difficult keeping track of thousands and thousands of hard copy records, especially for more extensive cases. For the longe cases, these can rack up hundreds of thousands of documents filed into litigation binders or case catalogs that are not only cumbersome but easily forgotten.
Creat, store, and send thousands of hard copy binders electronically with the MyLitBag app. Not only does going digital help with organization and storing documents, but it also saves money and time when sending these documents.

Going through document after document while flipping back to find the needed information can be extremely time-consuming. Annotating is an important part of the process to link important documents with others, however, working with paper copies can be difficult. Rather than sifting through endless documents and binders use storage, like MyLitBag that allows for all of these services and more.
