Q: Who manages the LawToolBox rules?
A: LawToolBox has a team of attorneys and paralegals on staff who research, write and update all of the published rules in our system. Our rules go through a thorough auditing process before they are published to our clients, taking into account holidays, rule changes and local rules that govern the deadlines.
Q: What if we have a unique practice?
A: Contact your LawToolBox representative to learn more about the rules we have available. We have a number or rulesets that are not broadly published
Q: What if I have multiple parties on one case and need to track multiple discovery or motion deadlines?

These reusable calculators generate their own set of deadlines that are customized by you! All repeat calculators are marked with a ** in our trigger dates pull down lists.
