Lex Machina hosted a webcast called “Document-Driven State Court Analytics” on August 31, 2021. The webcast featured guest speakers Carla Rydholm (Director of Product Management) and Kristin Huonder (Customer Success Manager at Lex Machina), in conversation with Todd Regenold (VP of Sales and Customer Success).

They discussed the kinds of strategic insights document-driven Legal Analytics can produce and what a huge difference this information can make for an attorney’s case. They showed how an attorney could save trips to the courthouse, avoid paying high fees, and be able to find the documents they needed. The covered topics included:

  • Lex Machina’s state court coverage
  • Unique insights from Lex Machina’s process
  • How to leverage state court analytics
  • How to access state court documents

“Lex Machina documents are systematically collected,” said Carla Rydholm. “The approach we take is that collecting case data and documents really is that foundational step to get started when we’re creating complete and accurate legal analytics . . . Lex Machina wants you to make use of big picture trends, use data and make decisions, but also feel really confident in what is this data, where did it come from. So we provide the links to all the underlying cases and every document that could be available in that case can be linked from those cases.”

[In discussing why you would want to fetch documents on Lex Machina instead of through the state court’s webpage] “Well, there’s a couple of reasons,” answered Kristin Huonder. “First of all, maybe you’re on Lex Machina anyway, and you come across the State Court documents that you need. This makes Lex Machina your one-stop shop. You can grab your analytics, you can grab your state court documents, and it’s all in the same place. The goal of that, of course, is to save time, because we’re all very busy.”

“We have a very aggressive roadmap as it relates to building out our state court offering,” Todd Regenold observed.”

“Lex Machina is document driven when creating analytics, we can provide that high value data,” Carla Rydholm added. “And really only our platform is doing this systematic, comprehensive data set creation.”
