The service is available – without a password – to anyone with a wireless-enabled laptop or iPhone, allowing attorneys to do legal research on Casemaker, which may be accessed at the NH Bar Association website.
Due to the type and age of the building and other factors, the installation was technically challenging. Started five years ago, the project represents a culmination of efforts from the Grafton County Bar Association and the county bar’s technical consultant, Adam Bristol of Current-Concepts, a computer and software company located in Orford, NH.
"Special thanks to the Grafton County Commissioners and the Grafton County Superior Court for their support and cooperation in this endeavor," said Grafton County Bar Association President Eric W. Janson.
