Does Your Firm Track Research Costs?

Posted by Hawk on August 23, 2013

If you use PACER’s client code feature, we’ve got a real time saver for you -- especially if you look up records for different cases in one research session. Our client code feature lets you switch client codes on the fly. With a persistent client code box along the top of every page, you can enter a new code at any time. Just type in a new code or select a previously used code before making a purchase.

Your credit details page is updated in real time to reflect any expenditures, including those linked to a client. You can view the details 24/7 and download a CSV file of the running total.

So if you want to track your PACER expenditures, our client code feature easily let’s you:

  • Enter new codes at any time
  • Easily select your own previously used codes
  • Easily select codes others in your firm have used

Better Search Made Even Better

Yes, it's true. While our free search feature let’s you hunt for cases and search within dockets all day long without charge, you can now also use our premium search to find the proverbial needle in a haystack. Whether you’re a lawyer or a librarian, you will feel a sense of euphoria once you use this feature:

Question: What do you get when you cross a librarian with a lawyer?
Answer: All the information you need--but you can't understand a word of it  1

And while our premium search does not rely on crossing human DNA, you will certainly understand the information you find. You can search across cases and within PDF’s using sophisticated search parameters. For example you can search for “relief” within 3 words of “stay” to pull up sample motions. You can filter by numerous facets, including jurisdiction, judge, type of entry, etc.

Best of all our subscription plans do not require a contract. So go ahead and search:

  • Through 2 million cases
  • Millions of dockets and other PACER queries
  • Actual text of PDF documents
