Posting Hearings

ADD A HEARING

Simply click on the “Add the Hearing” button and fill out the form. You won’t have to type all the details – for example, court location can be selected from a dropdown menu.

DON’T WANT TO TYPE?

We offer batch uploads, EDI, and CMS integrations to help you manage a high volume of cases.

BUNDLE TO SAVE

If your hearings take place at the same courthouse and within an hour from each other, you can “bundle” them together. This means they will be all covered by the same attorney and you get a significant discount.

Single hearing? No problem!

We will SUPERBUNDLE your single hearings with other clients’ hearing at the same court, at the same time, and pass the savings to you.

Finding Coverage

WHO ARE THE ELIGIBLE ATTORNEYS?

You tell us. Do all attorneys that work for you need a background check? No disciplinary history? Your account will be set up accordingly. Our system will only notify attorneys who meet the strictest standards set by your clients.

You will always know who is covering your hearing. We give you access to the covering attorney’s page and all of their stats – how many hearings they covered, what’s their mean time to report, the average price per hearing, and much more.

WHAT IF THE SYSTEM DOESN’T FIND ANYONE?

We covered 92% of all hearings automatically in 2019.

The remaining 8% was handled by our coverage team. They work tirelessly to find attorneys in difficult areas, calling, negotiating, juggling schedules.

You get regular updates about the state of coverage. You will see how many attorneys were notified, how many rejected the hearing, etc. Our coverage representatives will promptly inform you about any unusual circumstances that hinder the appearance counsel in the area, such as conflict of interest for local attorneys.

Getting Your Results

EFFICIENT REPORTING

After covering your hearing, the appearance attorney will complete a report detailing the hearing events.

It is our policy to have all reports submitted to you within 24 hours of the hearing.

We monitor the reporting time. Our system identifies and favors attorneys who submit their reports in a timely fashion.

Audits

WELCOME TO THE 21st CENTURY!

Say goodbye to stressful audits, late nights in the office when you search frantically for the right paperwork.

The Docketly Audit feature will gather all the necessary documents in a few minutes. Nothing gets lost. You can face your toughest client.

Hire Features

Cost-effective
We start off with a low flat fee per hearing, then the system automatically and continuously looks for other hearings in that area at the same time and bundles them together at progressively discounted pricing. It gets better. Our proprietary software also cross-references all hearings from different clients and “super bundles” the ones occurring in the same location at the same time, which further discounts the fees. The more hearings you post with us, the more opportunity for you to reduce costs.

Agility
We practice agile development. What this means for you is that you can expect us to be constantly improving based on your feedback. Our system is updated weekly with new features based on input from our customers. Constantly evolving…that’s us together!

Automation
Manually entering your hearings into Docketly’s website is easy but, when you are posting hundreds of hearings, the process can become time-consuming. Docketly offers a number of flexible integrations to automate processes and reduce errors.

Active performance monitoring
Our dedicated Attorney Performance Team makes sure you access the right attorney for the job, every time.

Know your attorneys
Instantly access performance metrics. Get a real-time overview of how many hearings each attorney has covered, experience level, hearing outcomes and more.

Customize your network
When you find attorneys within our network who consistently deliver optimal results and work well for you, you can set them as your preferred attorneys.
If there is an attorney you no longer want to use, we can filter them from covering for you in the future.

SOC 2 CERTIFICATION
We are proud to be the only SOC 2 certified appearance vendor! The SOC 2 audit report is based on AICPA’s existing Trust Services principles and criteria. The report evaluates an organization’s information systems relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.

Docketly currently undertakes a SOC 2 Type I audit on annual basis and can make the report available to current or potential customers upon execution of a non-disclosure agreement.

Pre-approved Pools
From time-to-time, you may have a client who wants to only use pre-approved attorneys for hearing coverage. Pools are a feature that allows you to create a list of pre-approved attorneys for these clients.

Easy audits
Stressful audits are a thing of the past. We offer a single-click solution that gathers all the necessary information for you.
