Ohio Law Firm Krugliak, Wilkins, Griffiths & Dougherty Implements
Best Authority Table of Authorities Software with Stellar Results

LEESBURG, VA – August 9, 2016 – Levit & James announced today that Ohio law firm Krugliak, Wilkins, Griffiths & Dougherty (KWGD) has successfully implemented the awardwinning Best Authority Table of Authorities (TOA) software. Best Authority effectively met the firm’s requirements for TOA production, immediately making the process more accurate, quick and efficient.

Sam Vongratana, the firm’s Software Facilitator and Integration Specialist, remarked: “Best Authority is very user-friendly, flexible and useful in our environment. During our trial period, we ran the software through an unexpected real-world scenario to create TOAs and review two briefs in a rush situation. Best Authority completed the initial scan, which finds and marks all citations in the brief, in under 60 seconds. Both documents were processed, checked and returned for attorney review in 30 minutes. TOAs for briefs of this size would have taken an estimated five hours to complete manually. We knew Best Authority was the right choice and recommend it to firms facing similar challenges for TOA production.”

Prior to purchasing Best Authority, KWGD used Microsoft Word to manually mark citations and generate their TOAs, which required several hours to complete. Vongratana began to investigate suitable alternatives and discovered Best Authority, which has an overwhelming market share in the legal industry. Ian Levit, VP of Sales at Levit & James, commented: “We are proud of the successful Best Authority installation at KWGD. Based on the firm’s unique needs, Best Authority is easily customized to meet the firm’s requirements. The firm was also impressed with Best Authority’s ability to identify and color-code citations to make the review process easier and more efficient.”

Best Authority is used by 900 law firms, government agencies, and nonprofits, including 87 of the 100 largest U.S. law firms.

Levit & James offers a free trial evaluation for both Best Authority Light and Premium Editions, which includes training and full technical support. For more information, visit
