The State of Illinois Office of the State Appellate Defender has chosen to implement the Legal Files Case Management System, licensing the software application for 250 users at the agency, the software company announced today.
Legal Files Software, Inc. successfully completed a proof-of-concept project for the Office earlier this year.
“Our agency has been using the same antiquated case management system for over 20 years,” explained Susan R.

To provide for this legal representation, the State Appellate Defender has district offices in each of the five appellate court districts of Illinois (Chicago, Elgin, Ottawa, Springfield and Mt. Vernon). Legal Files will be implemented in all five districts.
