Shepard’s Citations Service, exclusively available from LexisNexis®, is the leading authoritative resource quoted in the nation’s courts. Unlike other citators, Shepard’s offers the full spectrum of analysis and the potential to identify splits of authority. Instead of using categorization by a computer system alone, Shepard’s Citations Service relies on a team of attorney-editors who read and analyze cases to capture the essence of decisions and the intent of the courts.
