Docket Alarm - Great for Research

2020-05-07

Docket Alarm has been beneficial in searching for specific types of cases for clients.

Pros

Docket Alarm has provided good coverage of federal cases. It's limited state coverage has proven to be good where available.

Cons

There were a few hiccups with downloading information but Docket Alarm's customer service was fast and responsive. They updated me on progress and solved the issue in a timely manner. I couldn't ask for better customer service.

Easy to Use

2020-05-19

I am tracking the filings for cases and it's very easy to just press the update icon to see all the new filings and download what I need.

Pros

I like that it's very easy to use, it's simple to search for your case and be updated on the filings.

Cons

It's an additional cost to set up alerts for your cases.

Docket Alarm is Okay

2020-05-07

Pros

Easy to use and there are a broad range of cases available

Easy Research

2020-05-12

I would recommend Docket Alarm to anyone in the legal field.

Pros

Docket Alarm makes my job of researching the latest ADA cases extremely easy.

Cons

The only problem I had with the software at first was finding certain cases that were older, but there is a date filter that fixes that problem.

Generally positive experience.

Easy Litigation Alerts for the PTAB and Other Courts

2015-08-31

Before Docket Alarm, the only way to track a case was to go to the Patent Office's website manually, every day, and see if anything new posted to the docket.

Krassen Dimitrov

Good case retrieval option, but beware of double charges.

2020-05-07

Mostly very good, with the exception of the double-charging, which is unfortunately a deal-breaker.

Pros

For a non-frequent user, the per-document fee option is quite useful.

Cons

I get double-charged for the same document ALL THE TIME.
