Complex casesLet’s face it; when you own and operate a solo law practice, it’s hard to keep track of your complex cases.  It’s especially difficult when you’re the litigator.  You would think with all the technology available that managing complex cases would be a breeze—think again.

In a complex document case, it is important to gain control of the documents from the start. Here is where a company like Best Virtual Paralegal, LLC can help or any paralegal for that matter.  Here are some helpful tips:

At the beginning of your case, Best Virtual Paralegal, LLC will catalog all the documents of your case.  If you don’t use us—you can easily train your staff to catalog and tickle your files.

 The information we catalog in a tickle book could include information such as: the party or witness who produced them, if possible and when evidence is due to be filed.Holly Calendar for Video

  It’s important to mention, Best Virtual Paralegal, LLC maintains a paper and an electronic tickle book for all of its clients.   The most common question that we are asked is: why do we keep two types of tickle books?   We maintain two tickle books for each firm as part of our disaster plan.  In other words, it’s part of our safe guards.
