Timekeeping is good, but the report output could be better. The interface is much better than it used to be.

LexisNexis PCLaw

If you're a law firm who has a lot of clients/matters, PCLaw may not be available for you. My old firm grew to a point where they had to switch to Juris because they had too many matters in the system. If you're a smaller firm who needs an accounting software that is easy to use and can quickly get bills out to get you paid, this is a great product

Pros

3E Elite

  • Tracks time
  • Separates billable and nonbillable hours
  • Separates by Matters and clients

LexisNexis PCLaw

  • The software can hold a decent amount of matters, which works great being an IP firm with multiple (sometimes hundreds) of matters for each client.
  • Entry of time/expenses/invoices is very easy once the software is initially set up.
  • The software allows you to fully customize your invoices.

Cons

3E Elite

  • Users have reported that they have more reporting capability in other software.
  • The upgrade process is very time-consuming.
  • Sometimes slow.

LexisNexis PCLaw

  • Like I said in my pros, it can hold a lot of matters. But, if your firm is very large, PCLaw may not be the best option. My old firm grew to the point where they had to switch because they had too many matters for the system to hold.
  • The software is definitely dated, and I have some issues with crashing and other weird/buggy behavior. I have to set the default printer every time I log on in order to avoid multiple pop-ups when trying to print a document/report (which definitely doesn't take much time, but it can get annoying).

I've always had positive phone calls with PCLaw support. I usually have my questions answered within a few minutes of my phone call, and rarely have to go into very much detail

We experienced a better ROI with 3E and the timeline made more sense.

LexisNexis PCLaw

Juris seems to be a larger version of PCLaw. It's very similar as far as inputting time/expenses into the system. The software is more modern than PCLaw, but I've had peers mention that it is a lot more buggy for that reason. They have had issues with Juris, mentioning that they wish they could move back to PCLaw

Return on Investment

3E Elite

  • Better capability than it's predecessor.
  • Makes business run smoother.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

LexisNexis PCLaw

  • We are able to send out bills efficiently, which helps our cash flow and keeps receivables down (depending on the client).
  • We are able to pull detailed accounting reports, which helps us populate our end of the quarter/year spreadsheet for partner's net income.
  • Our attorneys are very comfortable with the pre-bill/billing process, so it saves them time, allowing them to bill more.
