With offices located in the Downtown Santa Ana Historic District, First Legal is the premier provider of litigation support services in Orange County. Our regional headquarters on Santa Ana Boulevard offers an easy commute to the nearby Superior Court, as well as the beautiful Old Orange County Courthouse. The Old Orange County Courthouse is the oldest court in all of Southern California and it is an official historic landmark. While it is no longer in operation, it now functions as a gallery for exhibits relating to local and regional history.
Orange County has a long and rich history, with each event contributing to the thriving legal industry of the present day. Unlike the more saturated markets in LA or the Bay Area, attorneys have been able to form lasting relationships with clients and businesses. Orange County also has a very diverse economy, which provides stability and allows attorneys to specialize based on personal interests, rather than chasing market trends.
In this growing market, the right legal support provider can help you rise above the noise. At First Legal, we have experience working with law firms in highly complex practice areas, such as defense and aerospace, biomedical, health services, communications, and energy. Reach out to our Client Services team to find out how we can give you the resources and support you need for success!
