At Firefly Legal, process serving excellence is our top priority. We go above and beyond typical industry practices to ensure every service meets the highest benchmarks for quality and reliability.

Process servers deliver legal documents to inform individuals of their involvement in a legal matter, like a lawsuit.

Certified Process Servers You Can Trust

Our network consists of extensively vetted process servers who have undergone thorough background checks and training. We only partner with servers who demonstrate utmost professionalism and integrity when carrying out their duties.

All Firefly Legal process servers hold the required registrations and certifications for their states. For example, our Illinois servers have PERC cards, which require drug screening, fingerprinting, and security training.

We also continuously evaluate server performance and terminate partnerships if servers fail to uphold our rigorous service standards. You can trust our field team to represent your case professionally.

Innovative Technology for Streamlined Service

While our servers carry out field work, our support team utilizes cutting-edge technology to facilitate smooth service. Our online platform allows for quick and easy document uploading along with real-time tracking updates.

We equip servers with our proprietary mobile app, which enables them to organize and document service attempts efficiently while out in the field. The app also captures GPS verification data for each service attempt.

These innovations optimize workflows and provide complete transparency throughout the process serving lifecycle. We leverage technology to deliver the rapid, seamless service your case requires.

Meticulous Process Service Customized to Your Needs

Every case comes with unique specifications, requirements, and challenges. That’s why we tailor our process to each client’s individual needs and preferences.

Before service, we consult with you to understand the specifics of your documents and preferred service approach. We want to know about any unique challenges or circumstances we should be aware of.

Based on your needs, we issue customized instructions to servers to ensure service adheres to your case standards. Our teams can accommodate special requests like:

  • Rush or priority service
  • After-hours or weekend delivery
  • Stakeouts for difficult-to-reach subjects
  • Specific strategies for evasive subjects
  • Daily update schedules
  • Customized documentation or reporting

 

No service request is too big or small for our dedicated support staff. We’ll craft a service strategy tailored for success with your unique case.

Our team is well-versed in these requirements, ensuring that the process is carried out seamlessly and professionally.
