Court Notices and Calendar integrates seamlessly with Best Case and provides many of the same benefits of MyECFMail including automatically saving your Free Looks, populating events on your calendar and accessing these documents from a Best Case client file.

You will also get access to features beyond court noticing including:

  • Claim Tracker™ – Helps you easily track and manage matched claims and review late claims or other discrepancies.
  • Enhanced case and client management – View client contact and case details online including synced case dates from Best Case.
  • Online document storage – Upload documents to keep a repository of all case-related data in one place.
  • File Cabinet™ – (New Feature!) Save your Court documents and Free Looks to your hard drive, giving you a backup locally.

Court Notices and Calendar is hosted online, which provides you the flexibility to access case documents and information anywhere with an internet connection.
