CourtCall created the turn-key telephonic court appearance industry in 1995 and as the only licensee to have previously provided such a service, will now be even better positioned to serve the Federal Judiciary. Judges and lawyers hoping to help reduce the cost of litigation know that clients save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars each time their lawyers are not required to sit in traffic or jump on a plane or train for a brief appearance. CourtCall was created because there was a compelling need to make routine, non-evidentiary pre-trial appearances more cost effective for clients and more manageable for busy attorneys and Courts. CourtCall enables Courts and attorneys to seamlessly simulate an in-person court appearance with no discernible disruption in the business of the Court, all at no cost to the Court.
"We personally experienced the need for an organized telephonic appearance program and created one to meet that need. We are proud that we have brought consistency and uniformity to the system and after having informally served the Federal Judiciary for several years, we are equally proud of this accomplishment," said CourtCall's President, Mark S. Wapnick.
With CourtCall, lawyers appear in Court, by telephone, from their homes, offices or other locations. "As lawyers, ourselves, we understood from the beginning that Judges and lawyers would not and could not trust their important Court business to a service that did not understand and meet the unique needs of the legal community. Telephonic Court Appearances involve much, much more than the average conference call. With over 800,000 CourtCall Appearances completed, we have delivered in every situation imaginable and work each day to improve," said Robert V. Alvarado, Jr., CourtCall's CEO.
CourtCall is the recognized national leader in facilitating telephonic court appearances, serving over 1,000 Federal, Bankruptcy and State Court Judges in over 40 States! Over the years, CourtCall has worked with dozens of organizations, including The National Judicial College and the Judicial Division of the American Bar Association to assure that as many Judges as possible are made aware of the benefits of CourtCall Appearances. CourtCall handles calls in some of the nation's smallest jurisdictions while simultaneously handling calls in the nation's largest cities, including some of the largest bankruptcy cases ever filed, such as United Airlines, WorldCom, Enron, Refco, Adelphia and PG&E. For both regularly scheduled and emergency matters -- day, night or weekends, CourtCall opens the telephonic door to the Courts across America.
