Uniting Families, Promoting Justice, and Managing Documents

With MetaJure in the background, the Law Offices of Robert Ahlgren & Associates can focus on what is most important.

 The lawyers and staff in the Law Offices of Robert Ahlgren & Associates, a Chicago-based immigration law firm, are dedicated to promoting justice, providing counsel to and uniting families.  Every year this award-winning team handles hundreds of cases. Behind their commitment to serving immigrants is a focus on efficiency and strong processes. In this information-intensive, deadline-driven practice, the lawyers and staff must be able to effectively manage the documents, emails and information related to every case.

Last year, the law firm began using MetaJure smart document management system. In just four days, with only a few hours of support from their IT staff, the firm installed the new system. Because MetaJure is so intuitive to use, attorneys and staff began using it almost immediately to find the documents they needed. And, MetaJure is speeding the success of the law firm’s paperless initiative thanks to the system’s abilities to automatically scan, OCR and index documents in legacy files and desktops throughout the firm. Says Network Administrator Ray Young, “MetaJure just makes all of our lives easier. Lawyers and staff can find information faster and that frees up more time to focus on uniting families and promoting justice. And, that’s what we’re all about.”

Ray Young will discuss the firm’s experience installing and using MetaJure at ILTACON, the annual conference of the International Legal Technology Association during the panel discussion, “Alternative Document Management Systems” that will take place on Tuesday, August 30 at 11 AM.
