One Legal is offering an eFiling discount to the Chicago legal community in partnership with the Chicago Bar Association.
One Legal is excited to introduce a new discount program in partnership with the Chicago Bar Association (CBA). All active members of the CBA will receive 10% off eFiling and eService and 15% off Concierge services.
“The move to eFiling statewide, and especially in Cook County, has been a big shift for how many of our members do work,” said Catherine Sanders-Reach, director of law practice management and technology at the Chicago Bar Association. “We are happy to have relationships with providers like One Legal to help educate lawyers on the process and make this transition.”
Built with the advice of legal professionals across the United States, One Legal is the feature-packed eFiling solution for professional law firms. Using One Legal, law firms can securely eFile and eServe over the eFileIL system, while benefiting from premium features such as pre-payment of court fees and simplified billing. As a certified service provider and eFiling portal, One Legal can be used to file cases in any eFileIl court.
Chicago Bar Association members can claim the membership discount by visiting the CBA’s member discounts page and clicking the link to One Legal’s discount page.
Collaboration between the CBA and One Legal
One Legal and the CBA have worked closely together during Cook County’s transition to Illinois’ new statewide eFiling system, eFileIL.
In January, the CBA hosted a “How to Prepare for Mandatory eFiling with One Legal” CLE-accredited training. The “Cook County eFiling Launch Day” event on May 1 marked the first official day of voluntary eFiling on the eFileIL system with four hours of CLE- and ILAP-accredited training and demonstrations for Chicago-area attorneys and paralegals. One Legal also sponsors the organization’s Law Practice Management and Technology committee.
“We are extremely pleased to partner with the Chicago Bar Association,” said One Legal Director of Marketing Richard Heinrich. “The transition to electronic court filing will revolutionize how law firms in Chicago work—One Legal’s professional eFiling platform, with its premium-level support and enhanced features makes that transition as simple as possible.”

As the county and state move toward mandatory eFiling, One Legal and the Chicago Bar Association plan to offer educational programming on electronic court filing, service of process and related topics in the late summer/fall of 2018.
