Being able to manage paper in an efficient way is critical for legal practices. However, this can be a daunting task in an industry that has long been known for its paper-driven processes and offices lined with cabinets full of case files. Law firms produce documents—lots of them—and with this comes plenty of challenges in locating the right piece of paper at the right time.
Unfortunately, many firms still operate with the same physical paper mentality they’ve had for decades, resulting in misdirected deliveries, delayed and misplaced mail and checks, and paralegals spending too much time scanning, uploading, naming and attaching documents to the case management system.
Morgan & Morgan, the nation’s largest personal injury and consumer protection law firm, set out to find a better, more efficient way to manage paper processes.
“As a firm, we’ve been on a digital transformation journey with the goal to become the Google of law firms,” – Morgan & Morgan CIO Ryan Colbert.
What Docufree Does for Litify Users.
Docufree provides automated inbound and outbound mail processing for law firms like Morgan & Morgan. The firm uses Docufree to receive, open, scan and track all incoming USPS inbound mail, automatically capturing each document and delivering it to the right place in Litify. All paper mail is first sent to a Docufree facility where it is opened, prepped and ready for scanning and post-processing. Atier the images are created, Docufree tags each document with the matier number that is associated with each case. Docufree then uploads and routes the mail to the relevant matier file inside of Litify, and notifies the correct person inside the firm. This includes important checks and other time-sensitive material.
The Docufree Digital Mail platiorm directly links to Litify’s document management and generation solution, Docrio, so when a case is searched, all documents and correspondence for that case appear in one view.
Improved Efficiency & Time Savings.
Colbert said that prior to the implementation, staff members were spending 30 to 45 minutes per day looking at their inbound mail, opening the envelopes, scanning the mail and posting the mail to the relevant matters in Litify. Now, with the Docufree integration, they are spending about five minutes a day on these tasks.

Remote Office Support.
When COVID-19 hit, Morgan & Morgan was ready. “Digital mail was a huge help in cases where we needed to strategically send an entire office home for a period of time,” Colbert said. “Docufree was able to accommodate us with a seamless transition and mail delivery consistency while working remotely.”
Outbound Mail Advantages.
While inbound mail improvements have been substantial at Morgan & Morgan, Colbert points out that outbound mail processes are also much more efficient. By leveraging APIs with Docufree, the firm’s staff can now select a document, select the intended recipient and choose a class of service, such as “certified”, all from Litify, their case management platform. Then, with a simple click of a button, Docufree automatically mails the document.
