ELAW MAKES STRATEGIC INVESTMENT IN ZR PER DIEM SERVICES. BOTH COMPANIES EXPAND LEGAL SERVICES OFFERINGS
Partnership promises to make it easier for attorneys throughout New York and New Jersey to cover court appearances and depositions with high quality experienced attorneys
GREAT NECK, NY, October 29, 2018 — ZR Per Diem Services, LLC (ZRPD), New York and New Jersey’s leader in per diem attorney support, and eLaw® New York and New Jersey’s leader in case docketing, calendaring and tracking, today announced a first-of-its-kind strategic partnership that will amplify the impact of both companies’ innovative offerings.
To revolutionize the way attorneys manage and staff their cases, the two companies are integrating their groundbreaking platforms. Law firms who are clients of both companies will be able to easily and quickly secure per diem coverage in their eLaw accounts or from an eWatch alert without having to re-enter case information in their coverage request. Going forward, these firms and the per diem attorneys staffing their cases will also be able to view eLaw-provided case details from inside ZRPD’s innovative Revolution™ appearance management system.
“We started providing per diem services in 2016 through our eLaw portal,” said Dominick Esposito, President of eLaw. “We had arms-length partnerships with several per diem firms, which allowed us to assess various per diem providers. We discovered that the best attorneys, the best customer service and the most efficient process came from ZR Per Diem and their Revolution system. We are absolutely thrilled to invest in ZR Per Diem to create this new unparalleled offering and fuel ZRPD’s growth.”
eLaw has a strong history of partnering and investing in companies that provide complementary services for attorneys. With its sister company PM Legal, it recently announced a strategic investment in dispute resolution firm SSAM. The new ZR Per Diem partnership continues the strategy of building the most complete suite of top litigation support offerings available to New York and New Jersey attorneys.
“Partnering with eLaw,” said Connie Rinaldi, Managing Director of ZRPD, an attorney with 15 years of experience, “helps us expand our concierge-based per diem services offering to more firms and across more venues, while maintaining our high standards for processing requests, assigning professional per diem staff attorneys and providing appearance results quickly. It also allows us to become an even better home for per diem attorneys looking for more efficient, predictable and profitable appearance schedules.”
ZRPD’s market leadership and its expansive network offers its clients and its per diem attorneys significant advantages. ZRPD provides broad coverage as well as the ability to cover most last-minute requests, since ZRPD has per diems available in the vast majority of courthouses daily. Likewise, the best per diem attorneys want a full day’s schedule, which ZRPD can provide.
This scale would not be possible without ZRPD’s homegrown Revolution™ software that automates much of the process of ordering and fulfilling per diem appearance orders. “Maintaining our quality standards while growing rapidly required building capabilities that no other per diem service has” says Cesar Zuniga, the ZRPD Managing Director, a seasoned trial attorney, who led the development effort. “It’s imperative that we are not just the largest – but also the best place for per diem attorneys to secure work and the best place for law firms that need to consistently get the best attorneys without feeling lost in the system.”
Without scale and a system like Revolution, smaller per diem firms cannot provide the same level of service to either their clients or the per diem attorneys who staff their appearances.
The integrated features with more combined capabilities will be available in the coming months.

We hosted our first annual ZR Per Diem Services picnic this summer. The weather was fantastic and we had a great team-building experience.
Our team members had the opportunity to meet many of the per diem attorneys who appear in court every day for you while enjoying bbq and burgers! Thank you to our team, per diem attorneys and friends who were able to participate!
Effective October 1, 2018, we will no longer be able to print documents greater than 20 pages in length.
Motions: Due to the individual Judges' rules for motion practice and each Judge's specific requirements such as collating/binding requirements, exhibit tab requirements and particularities such as bluebacks, specific pleadings in exhibits, etc., we are no longer able to print motion papers or courtesy copies. We strongly encourage you to review the Judge's rules closely as you prepare your papers to avoid any issues.
Fedex: If your request is submitted at least three (3) business days in advance, we will provide you with the name and address of the covering attorney so that you may Fedex or overnight the documents to the covering attorney for delivery prior to the court appearance. Motion papers should NOT be sent to ZR Per Diem Services's offices.
Messenger: If your request is for the following day, we recommend you have a courier service deliver the documents to the covering attorney in court.
Request for Adjournment: If you are unable to deliver the documents to the covering attorney in time for the appearance, please request that the covering attorney request an adjournment on your behalf. That being said, there is no guarantee that the adjournment request will be granted.
As you may know, there have been a number of changes in Queens County recently. Specifically, the Queens CMP Part was shut down this summer (we sent an alert a few months ago). This has resulted in scattered appearances throughout the Courthouse (different judges, parts, and floors). Individual judges are now enforcing strict calendar calls.
We also recently sent out an alert on our social media about the most recent change .... new rules for the Queens Trial Scheduling Part. These new rules have created strict calendar calls for the TSP Part (no longer a check-in part!). The rules also make it more likely that cases on the calendar will be sent out for jury selection and cases have been getting sent out for jury selection quicker than usual. Please be sure to plan accordingly and, if you are requesting coverage, please provide instructions on how assigned covering attorney should proceed on TSP matters. The new Queens TSP Rules can be found here.
