CourtCall created the turn-key telephonic court appearance industry in 1995. Lawyers hoping to help reduce the cost of litigation know that clients save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars each time their lawyers are not required to sit in traffic or jump on a plane or train for a brief appearance. CourtCall was created because there was a compelling need to make routine, non-evidentiary pre-trial appearances more cost effective for clients and more manageable for busy attorneys.
