Looking For The Easiest Way To Access Court Filings? Try PacerPro – Above the Law


Having quick and easy access to relevant court filings is crucial in litigation. Traditionally, accessing those filings has gone one of two ways: you either have someone log into Pacer or a court’s filing system directly, search for the relevant filings, download them, and then distribute them, or you have a tool that sends you an email alert with a link that takes you to the system to do essentially the same thing.

Neither of these approaches is particularly convenient. It probably takes around five minutes to obtain the document you want and get it into the hands of the people who need it, which may not sound like a lot at first blush, but when you multiply that five minutes across the large number of filings in the many cases you handle, the time can really start to add up. That’s time that could be much better spent on higher-valuable work that’s instead being devoted to a task no one wants to do.

PacerPro has a better way. With PacerPro, you get the documents you need automatically emailed to you, delivered to your distribution list, and added to your document management system, saving Pacer fees in the process, all with no effort on your part.

When obtaining case documents can be that easy, why would you do it any other way?

How PacerPro Works

If you have an active case in state or federal court, or are monitoring ongoing litigation for one of your clients, you’re likely relying on some means of receiving electronic notifications that alert you to when you need to log in and download newly filed documents. PacerPro inserts itself into that process and does the work for you.

You simply identify in PacerPro the cases you want to follow and they add a unique PacerPro email identifier to the relevant ECF profile. Whenever there’s a new filing, PacerPro automatically downloads it and sends it to you.

The email notification you get isn’t a link you have to click, but the actual document itself.

PDF2Go Email Feature

If you have a case team that needs to receive updated filings, you can designate a distribution list in PacerPro and have the filings automatically sent to everyone who needs to be in the know. Your distribution lines can be as simple or as complex as you want, depending on the nature of your case or your practice.

PacerPro also integrates with iManage and NetDocuments to automatically add court documents to your document management system whenever they’re filed. That means your pleadings folder is always up-to-date, simplifying your practice and putting the resources you need at your fingertips.

On top of the ease and convenience, PacerPro can also save you significant Pacer fees. For example, if you want to monitor a case that your client may one day want to join or is highly relevant to its business, you can add it to your PacerPro account. With 40,000 PacerPro users and counting, PacerPro is already following many major litigations, so there’s a high likelihood that the case you’re interested in is already being tracked.

Throughout the process, PacerPro is laser-focused on security. Because they access documents via a unique PacerPro email identifier, you never have to provide attorney credentials. Confidential documents will never appear online or anywhere other than where you tell PacerPro to send them.

PacerPro allows you to follow an unlimited number of cases in federal court and many state courts. They’ve designed their system with a holistic approach to attorney workflows in mind, meaning they truly make your job easier. Even if you’re not tech-savvy, PacerPro gets you the documents you need, where and when you need them. It’s hard to think of an easier, faster, more efficient way to stay on top of important court filings.
