Lawdex announced today the live release of its new online service providing any US attorney the tools to reach across the web to pull court records from any state or municipal court on demand.

Since only a portion of state court records are available online, the vast majority of court records can only be retrieved at the court in paper format. Lawdex, by working in tandem with its network affiliates, has automated the retrieval process for any attorney with online access.

Court records are retrieved from the target court in either electronic or paper format, scanned as necessary, converted to PDF format, and made accessible to attorneys online. On request, attorneys may have the option to receive their selected court records in a searchable PDF format.

Commenting on the underlying technology, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder Brent Pearson made note of the system's design, "This is a secure document exchange designed for people relying on the integrity of their legal documents. The technology means little without its ability to connect people in a way that's trusted."
