Nationwide Court Filing Services

Electronic or paper, we’ll work to get your cases off the ground quickly!

Court filing is the backbone of legal proceedings. We know that filings, whether physical or electronic, are a time-consuming process. They also require careful attention to detail and organization to ensure all documents are correctly prepared, filed in a timely manner, and appropriately tracked. Your success relies heavily on the filings and the courts.

The Firefly Advantage

The courts are key to our shared success and for that we need good relationships. We have developed substantial knowledge of court procedures, and established strong relationships with court administrative staff. Our experience means we’re more resourceful when challenges arise, work-arounds are necessary, or bottlenecks develop. We have even initiated standing orders in some courthouses!


Smarter is Better

Our filers are a rare breed and knowing the courts inside and out comes naturally to them. We understand files’ importance and are prepared to go the extra mile to keep them moving. We ensure all of your legal documents are filed accurately, error-free, and on time.

Firefly Frequently Asked Questions

Your Roadmap to Understanding Our Legal Support Services

How can I determine if I need legal assistance in filing court papers?

Depending in which state you reside, it’s likely the courts in your state have a self-help center that can provide free legal help to people who do not have a lawyer. Self-Help Center staff can:

  • Tell you about your case
  • Help you with the forms you need
  • Explain your legal options


They can’t give you legal advice or go to court for you.
How much help you can get, and with what types of legal problems, varies from court to court. In some courts, the self help center may only be able to help you with a few family law issues. In other courts, self help centers may be able to offer more services for things like evictions, name changes, guardianships, and others.

Firefly Legal is not a law office, therefore cannot provide legal advice.

The electronic filing service providers’ interfaces should provide a listing of all available court filings. When selecting a filing it is recommended that you select the one that is the closest match to your filing’s name. 

If you are submitting an “Opposition to a Motion for Summary Judgment,” we would recommend you select “Opposition”.

Failure to correctly select the proper filing name can result in a delay in the processing of your filing.

Stay informed about the status of your files from the moment you upload them. With Firefly’s state-of-the-art platform, you can instantly track your filing’s progress, giving you clear visibility on when your documents have been officially accepted by the court.

We e-file all common court document types in each jurisdiction. Some less common documents may need to be filed manually. Just ask us if you are unsure about a filing.

Upload your documents based on state-specific cut-off times listed in our portal. As long as we receive your filing by the deadline, we will submit it on time.

Don’t worry – we’ll work with you to identify any issues and quickly resubmit your documents. Re-filing rejected documents is covered under our service.

Yes, filed copies are delivered right to your Firefly Legal account. You’ll get an email notification with access to stamped documents.

A Winning Scenario

Firefly looks for all opportunities to ease the load of our clients, colleagues, and friends in the courts. We are committed to finding innovative ways to make our lives in the industry easier—not just for a day, but every day. When we succeed, we often find we have created a winning scenario for both our clients and the courts.

We are familiar and connected with Odyssey, PACER, and many other state filing systems.

Before submitting to the courts, the file is organized and documents are verified for accuracy and completeness.

Along the way, the filing docket is monitored to ensure the file keeps moving without interruption.

When the date-stamped documents return from the courts, they are reviewed for completion and accuracy.

In the event of missing data, documents, or errors, we immediately seek appropriate intervention to correct the mistakes with the courts.

The entire file is uploaded, routed, and made available to clients in our case management system.

Enlighten your caseload and ensure success before your
documents even reach a process server.
