CourtSolutions is a revolutionary new way for Judges, lawyers, and other court participants to appear telephonically in Court. Judges have powerful options for managing their telephonic courtrooms through an easy-to-use visual interface. Participants also can access the visual interface to see: who is on the line, who is speaking, and a host of other innovative controls. At every step of the process, CourtSolutions reduces the administrative burden for starting and managing telephonic appearances for everyone.
There are three key differences between CourtSolutions and its competitors. CourtSolutions automates the registration process for hearings, features a 1 minute dial in process, and provides rich controls and information to Judges and participants through our innovative Hearing Dashboard.
Lawyers can register for hearings 24/7 through the CourtSolutions website. Once the Judge approves an appearance request, the lawyer receives a confirmation email. Chambers no longer needs to deal with phone calls regarding participation requests. Lawyers don't have to waste valuable time on the phone getting approvals.
Within minutes of a scheduled hearing, participants dial into the CourtSolutions access number and enter their cell phone number and secure personal identification number (PIN). That's all it takes to join the telephonic hearing.
For Judges, it is even easier. Each Judge has a personal FastAccess number. When the FastAccess number is dialed from the courtroom, the telephonic hearing begins immediately. No waiting for an operator, no codes to remember, no delays, and no hassles. It takes seconds to start a call.
During the hearing, the Judge and each participant can access the CourtSolutions’ Hearing Dashboard—a visual representation of everyone on the call. Know right away exactly who is speaking, who they represent, and who wants to speak—all the visual cues that are lost through other conference calling solutions.
Most importantly, the Hearing Dashboard lets the Judge control the call. Besides seeing who is on the call and who is speaking, the Judge can mute any line with a single click. He can sidebar with any subset of the participants on the call and he can terminate some or all participants as needed. CourtSolutions puts control of telephonic hearings back into the Judge’s hands.
CourtSolutions also offers all participants the ability to hand up documents (at no cost) to the Judge and other participants, using our Document Dashboard. In just a couple of clicks, a participant can upload documents and everyone has access to them through the Hearing Dashboard.
