Stuart Maue entered into a long term agreement with Juniper Networks, Inc.


SAINT LOUIS, MO, March 1, 2006 - Stuart Maue, the nation’s oldest and premier legal auditing firm, announced today that it had entered into a long term agreement with Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) for LIBRA - Connex™ services. Juniper Networks, Inc. is the provider of secure networking solutions in the United States and throughout the world. Thousands of service providers — including the world’s 25 largest — government, and enterprise customers rely on Juniper Networks innovations and highly scalable, reliable networking and security platforms to deliver the best user experience with the lowest total cost of operations.

LIBRA - Connex™ is a proprietary Internet based legal bill review application designed to manage and perform all aspects of the law firm invoice creation, transmission, receipt, review, analysis, and storage process. Stuart Maue has created the Web enabled solution for the creation, transfer, and validation of billing data from law firms to clients based upon Stuart Maue’s proprietary legal audit software and earlier released LIBRA™ program.

LIBRA - Connex™ allows Juniper Networks and its law firms an encrypted Internet connection for paperless transfer of billing information between the law firms and Juniper Networks. LIBRA - Connex™ automatically performs a real-time review of the information received from each law firm and notifies the law firm when the submission does not comply with Juniper’s predetermined criteria. The law firm is given the opportunity of either editing the submission to attain compliance or submitting the information without further editing. Once the law firm has submitted the billing information for payment, the law firm can fully monitor the process and track any outstanding balances throughout the payment cycle.

LIBRA - Connex™ allows Juniper Networks full access to each law firm submission, budget information, payment records, invoice review status, and other information maintained in Stuart Maue’s data warehouse. Juniper Networks has elected a review of individual invoices that will include review by Stuart Maue’s legal auditors.

“Stuart Maue is delighted to team with Juniper Networks in this compliance review program using LIBRA - Connex™ to assist Juniper Networks managing its legal expenditures” said Dr. Harry J. Maue, founder of the legal auditing industry and Chief Executive Officer of Stuart Maue. “We are pleased to provide our clients the opportunity to utilize every possible benefit from the experience we have obtained over the past 20 years of auditing some of the most complex cases in this country. LIBRA - Connex™ makes this possible.”
