“We’ve had great success using Legal Files to improve the overall efficiency of our operations.”
Legal Files Software, Inc. and the City of Tucson have entered into an agreement to extend the use of electronic case management software and legal matter management software to the Tucson Legal Advisor’s Office. Tucson first implemented Legal Files three years ago in the City Attorney’s Office, after the software was selected following a formal procurement process.
“The City Attorney’s office has been running Legal Files for just over two years now and we’re very happy,” said Carrie Fairchild, the office’s management coordinator. “We’ve had great success using Legal Files to improve the overall efficiency of our operations. It only made sense,” she said, “given the software’s customization capabilities, to expand its usage to the Legal Advisors Office. Over time, it’s become very apparent that they would benefit greatly from using Legal Files.”
The legal advisors are members of the City Attorney’s Office, but are assigned to the Police Department. Their duties include providing legal opinions regarding work related legal issues, field observation and assistance, and serving as the liaison for the Pima County Attorney’s Office, the City Attorney’s Office and the municipal, state and federal courts.
