Direct File Service

What is Direct File?

Have you ever looked at a national service company invoice for filing services or obtaining a good standing, roll your eyes and wonder how in the world they sleep at night? As legal professionals, we have too. So, we discovered the workaround and can bring it to you.

OUR BIG IDEA … RE-IMAGINE LEGAL SPEND

Velawcity Direct File Service rescues your bottom line by filing and retrieving documents, expeditiously and at significantly lower rates than those of other national service providers.

Velawcity’s end product always results in superior service and significant cost-savings.

BeyondTrust did… and here’s what they have to say…

“After a merger, we needed to file name amendments in 20 states. We received an estimate from a large service company for $12,987. Before moving forward, we contacted Velawcity for comparison. The service Velawcity provided was better than anything I experienced in my years of working for big companies, and the price including all filing and service fees saved BeyondTrust nearly $5,000. I would recommend Velawcity to any legal professional looking for superior service and significant cost-savings.”

– Loretta Gaid | Vice President, Legal | BeyondTrust Corporation

And, Benchmark Senior Living, said…

“… we started using Denise’s filing and retrieval methods in lieu of using another third-party provider. In the first year, we saved close to $30,000 and received the same or better service from her network. It was amazing to get significant savings simply by using a different approach.”
