Anyone in the legal profession can attest to the amount of time that can be wasted when paperwork needs to be delivered to and filed in court. Not only does documentation need to get from its point of origin (typically the law firm’s office) to a specific courthouse, but once there, someone must typically wait while the documents are processed and then stamped to show that they have been processed. This is not the end of the courthouse delivery process in many cases, however, as often the processed and stamped documentation must be returned to the original point of origin or may need to be delivered to another location.
This whole process sounds rather time consuming, doesn’t it? Well, it is. If an employee of the firm needs to handle the entire court delivery process from start to end, it can take hours out of what could otherwise be a productive day – hours that are wasted during the time it takes to transport items from point A to the courthouse, to wait for processing to be completed, and then to return the documentation to point A or to a point B, if necessary.
As you can imagine, a good deal of time can be spent even if documents only need to be delivered locally to a courthouse within Manhattan or the metropolitan area. But what if a legal case requires that this documentation be delivered to state courthouses housed throughout the state of New York? It is not uncommon for law firms in New York City to have to file documents in courthouses as far as Albany, Rochester, Buffalo and other areas throughout the state. Can you imagine the time that would be wasted, as well as the expense incurred, by sending a salaried employee traipsing through the state to complete the delivery?
