SECURE Electronic Recording System & Trial Attorney Parnership

Orange County, a pioneer in electronic recording and filing since the mid 1990s, brought together Los Angeles, Riverside and San Diego counties in a multi-county agreement to allow 190 authorized statewide and national submitters to record documents electronically in a secure environment. Orange County Clerk-Recorder Tom Daly involved the state's largest counties to ensure maximum efficiency. Submitters now use one environment to scan and send documents for recording. Since its launch in December 2009, the SECURE recording delivery system has reduced postage, mailroom labor and in-house scanning by $900,000. The success of the system has earned official certification by the state Attorney General's Office, with other counties encouraged to join as partners.

The current recession created a double-problem for the Orange County District Attorney's Office: Caseloads for misdemeanor, felony and juvenile cases continue to rise, but budget cuts reduced the number of prosecutors from 25 to 18 per court. The solution: an innovative pubic-private partnership that recruits attorneys from local and city law firms to work full-time as temporary Deputy District Attorneys for eight weeks. By adding experienced trial lawyers from the private sector, caseloads have been reduced and expedited. In fact, the 85 participating attorneys have conducted 151 jury trials, 28 court trials and 675 preliminary hearings which have provided over $2.2 million to county taxpayers.
