Legal document scanning is becoming an increasingly sought after service but what does it offer and where can you get your legal documents scanned?
Law firms produce a great deal of paper on a daily basis. Depending on the number of cases and clients they are dealing with, these files could be kept in boxes, folders and filing cabinets or in off-site document storage facilities. In times past, this used to be the perfect solution to comply with file retention laws but now, as technology advances, there is a much more beneficial legal document storage solution. Legal document scanning has provided many companies with an effective and future proof document storage solution.
It is a requirement in the legal sector to retain files (sometimes for a number of years) but with the sheer amount of paper involved in the practice, this has become a costly and space consuming process. Recently, the legal admissibility of digitised documents has changed meaning it is now ok to retain files and documents in a digital scanned format as opposed to in hard copy. If these documents are used as evidence, they can hold the same weight in court as the paper copy (often provided there is proof of the destruction and disposal of the original).
