ECF Inform

ECF Inform is a service that automates the work of Downloading PACER and State ECF Notices, Uploading the documents to your Document Management System with the naming you choose, and Notifying the team of the Notice with the documents attached.

ECF Forwarding

When a document is electronically filed, only
the attorneys on the court case record receive ECF Emails, while the entire
team needs to be notified

Immediate and Accurate Forwarding

 The system automatically reads ECF Notices for all federal PACER courts and many state courts and forwards the notice to the team listed on the ECF Inform Watchlist.
