It’s hard to be in two places at the same time, but that’s exactly the challenge that many New York City legal professionals face each day. Having to run down to the courthouse to have papers filed at the same time as an important client meeting is scheduled has become status quo.
As we all know, time is money, so instead of needing to have your assistant shuffle around your schedule to accommodate the conflict or having office personnel drop what they are doing to make a trip to the courthouse, many legal firms are relying on local courier services to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Documents that need to make their way to court for processing can be picked up at their point of origin and delivered to the courthouse. Delivery personnel can then wait for the documentation to be processed and stamped, and can then deliver the copies to their final destination. Local companies, like GFD Courier, have the experience and know-how needed in order to execute legal delivery services with remarkable efficiency and professionalism.
Local couriers also offer an array of additional services that can greatly assist many Manhattan legal professionals. If you’ve ever tried to hail a taxi in NYC during the morning or midday rush, you know it can be virtually impossible at times. And when trying to get not only yourself to court on time, but large board displays, tripods and other accoutrement that may be needed during proceedings, it can be more than a challenge. Local companies that are well versed in legalese can offer assistance with delivery and of courtroom displays while allowing you time to prepare for the day in court. They can also pick-up the presentation items and legal documents when proceedings conclude.
When the case is closed, many firms can also take advantage of off-site legal document storage. Real estate is expensive in NYC, so occupying half of your office space with documents that are no longer needed on a day-to-day basis can often become uneconomical. Filling the space with employees that can contribute to your firm’s bottom line may prove to be more cost effective in the long run. Relying on the same company that provides delivery services for secure legal document storage can offer you piece of mind with the knowledge that the documents can be retrieved and delivered right to your door, whenever you need them. Digital scanning can also offer additional ease of access, day or night.
Once you’ve found a local messenger service that can provide many of the services needed to run a successful legal firm, you may find it hard to figure out how you managed without them. Using a single company to execute multiple industry needs with efficiency and reliability can be a game-changer. Employees can run at their peak performance knowing that help is only a phone call away.
