    information on this new service to your web readers, it is truly a great tool for all litigators. Free uses are available
    when you sign up online, and reference Charles J. Peck. There is no cost to sign up for this service.

    Press Release:
    Deadlines On Demand Launches Online Service

    Deadlines On Demand™ Launches Online Service at http://www.deadlines.com To Meet Calendaring Needs of Small Firms
    Los Angeles, CA (November 1, 2004) – Deadlines On Demand™ (“DOD”), the premier legal deadline calculation company, has launched its online research service available at http://www.deadlines.com. DOD provides solo practitioners and small firms with CompuLaw’s reliable rules-based court deadlines on a pay-per-use basis to help protect users from missing critical court dates. CompuLaw, LLC provides the DOD service through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Deadlines On Demand, LLC. DOD also announced an alliance with LexisNexis and named Joseph Scott as Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
    The new DOD research service gives small firms and solo practitioners a means to quickly and inexpensively calculate their critical deadlines, without the need to install and learn software. The technology behind DOD includes CompuLaw’s award-winning software and extensive library of rules databases for hundreds of jurisdictions nationwide. Using this technology, DOD researches the rules, adjusts for holidays and schedules all deadlines for a single legal proceeding in seconds.
    “Deadlines On Demand is the best new legal service that I’ve used in years,” said Michael Taitelman, partner of Freedman & Taitelman, LLP, a Los Angeles-based law firm. “Using its technology, our firm can obtain reliable and critical dates in a matter of seconds. More importantly, we rely on Deadlines on Demand for calendaring in jurisdictions in which we do not typically practice. This is invaluable.”
    Users can take a free tour of the DOD site and browse available jurisdictions before actually deciding to register. To generate deadlines, users first register at the DOD web site (www.deadlines.com), a simple process that asks for name, address, email and credit card billing information. Then, users can generate a complete list of court deadlines using DOD’s intuitive and easy-to-use interface. Legal professionals enter the area of law, court location and the date of an event, such as a trial. The list of deadlines and corresponding authorities are: (1) displayed, (2) e-mailed to the user, (3) printed if hard copy is needed and (4) sent to the user’s desktop calendar, such as Microsoft Outlook®.
    DOD Alliance with lexisONE®
    DOD also announced an alliance with LexisNexis® U.S., a leading provider of legal, news and business information services, to bring rules-based court deadlines to the lexisONE® community.
    “LexisONE®is a unique Web community designed to meet the day-to-day practice demands of small-firm attorneys. With Deadlines On Demand we can offer small firms access to an important service to help them stay competitive,” said Paul Speca, vice president of operations at LexisNexis.
    Joseph Scott Named Vice President
    Joseph Scott has been named Vice President of Sales and Marketing of DOD and will be responsible for business development and promotion operations. As an attorney and member of the California State Bar, Mr. Scott has more than 20 years of experience in the legal online industry. He previously served in senior sales and management positions for OneSource Information Services, Inc., the Legi-Slate company of the Washington Post Company and West Publishing Company. He received his Juris Doctorate degree from the Pepperdine University School of Law and his Bachelor of Science degree from California State University.
    “Small firms and solo practitioners need the same reliable litigation tools that large firms have used for years,” said Scott. “DOD gives the same date calculation results that larger firms receive from CompuLaw Vision software on an ‘on demand’ basis. These dates are critical because failure to properly calculate court dates associated with changing rules is one of the leading causes of legal malpractice claims. To be safe and responsible, small firms and solo practitioners can simply and quickly ‘DOD’ their dates, much as they ‘Shepardize®’ their briefs.”
    DOD research is offered on a pay-per-use basis. The cost, which ranges from approximately $9.95 to $99.95 (depending on the number of deadlines generated per transaction), can be billed directly back to clients as legal research.
