As the industry’s premiere File Thru Trial™ litigation support provider, we offer comprehensive cost containment programs and corporate litigation service. First Legal has been innovating in the field of legal support services for over a quarter of a century. With over 20 offices in the western United States alone, First Legal provides support services to thousands of law firms and corporations simultaneously. Some of our most noteworthy solutions range from court filing, to service of process, to trial presentation services.

Our litigation cost containment specialists are focused on assisting you and your team in managing your legal expenditure as it applies to legal support services.

To emphasize, there isn’t a vertical or company, Fortune 50 or 5000, who would not benefit from this type of program.


It is estimated that 90% of the cost of litigation occurs during the discovery phase. Until now, companies have had little success in controlling expenses due to the many areas of litigation support. Finally, the search is over! Given these points, First Legal has identified key opportunities for realized savings.


Multiple vendors for these services can add to the difficulty of visibility into true spend due to varying vendor management and service quality.

Advance fee check charges from multiple vendors can increase spend by 10-15%.
