About Court on Call

Court on Call was created to offer firms overwhelmed with busy court schedules, a cost-effective alternative to sending attorneys to distant counties.

As the managing attorney at a Chicago law firm, Ms. Voukidis was responsible for assigning attorneys to appear on matters in Chicago and in collar counties.  She realized that the firm lost hundreds of attorney hours and thousands of dollars per year sending associates to cover short statuses in collar counties.  Typically, the traveling associate would not return to the office, resulting in a loss of the entire workday.  Coupled with reimbursement expenses and wasted billable office hours, she determined that sending associates to cover out-of-county court matters, was a lose-lose situation for any firm, big or small.

Court on Call was started to assist firms in saving valuable time and money while maintaining experienced and professional coverage of their cases.  Our flat, fixed rates are specifically set to be a cost-effective solution for all firms.
