Court Days is an essential iPhone application for lawyers, paralegals, legal secretaries and all other legal professionals.
Court Days allows you to quickly calculate the number of court days or calendar days (or a combination of the two) before or after a given date. It is simple to use and allows you to calculate multiple dates on a single screen.
New in version 2.0:
- You can now provide your own custom court holidays. This is especially useful if your jurisdiction is not in the application’s default database or if your local court sets its own holiday schedule.
- You can now calculate the number of court days, calendar days, weekdays, etc. between two dates.
- You can now email the results of your date calculations.
- The application now defaults back to your last selections and settings on relaunch.
Because the observance of legal holidays varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction within the United States, the Court Days database contains legal holiday information for over 60 jurisdictions, including both state and federal courts.*
For example, in California, use Court Days to calculate the filing deadlines for a notice of motion, opposition brief, and reply brief by requesting dates 16, 9, and 5 court days before the hearing date. Dates can also be calculated in sequence (e.g. 30 calendar days from A, 10 court days from B, and 5 calendar days from C)
Court Days for iPhone provides a quick and efficient way to calculate court dates and deadlines without having to rely on that clumsy old paper date wheel or counting by hand on a paper calendar.
*(The Court Days database does not contain legal holiday information for the states of Wisconsin or Massachusetts, as each individual court in those states determines which holidays will be observed.)

Court Days was also named as one of the five essential apps for lawyers by The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW) and is #2 on TheMacLawyer’s 10 Must Have iPhone Apps For Lawyers List. Recently, Court Days was featured in California Lawyer magazine.
