All deadlines/due dates are calendared by our central docketing clerk and verified by our legal assistants. Most of the documents containing necessary docketing enter the firm through the US mail or electronic court filings, which are processed by our central docketing department.
All documents received by the office by US mail, facsimile, hand delivery, messenger, or private delivery service (UPS, FedEx) are routed through our central docketing department, which reads the mail for dates/deadlines and enters those dates/deadlines in our central calendaring system.
Events/activities are entered in the firm’s electronic calendaring system. Firm policy is to also calendar a series of reminders that are entered when an event is initially calendared on the firm’s docket system. The reminders appear on the applicable attorneys’, legal assistants’ and paralegals’ electronic calendars.
