AbacusLaw

AbacusLaw is fantastic for a small firm. You can easily organize files, track timekeepers, and use billing codes that transfer to billing programs to easily create invoices. I do not think we use AbacusLaw to its fullest extent, which is unfortunate on our part. There are so many more things I know it can do that would solve a number of issues (i.e. using the softphone feature to bill telephone calls to files).

MyCase

My case is well suited for collaboration with clients and remote access to online documents. It allows for secure online communication with clients in a secure online portal. These features allow for increased and efficient communication with clients about the status of their case. It saves time by avoiding unnecessary client phone calls and meetings. It allows attorneys and staff to remotely access documents without being tied down by a local server at an office using this cloud SAS program.Its automatic document preparation program lacks some features and has limited support for Apple software. The API for MyCase is limited to a few software integrations. Importing contact information from other programs is limited, and backing up online documents is currently restricted to a new Dropbox integration. MyCase has good timekeeping, billing, invoice, and credit card processing features that improve collecting account receivables. These features in and of themselves can justify the cost of the program.

Pros

AbacusLaw

  • Security
  • Organization
  • Easy to use

MyCase

  • Trust accounting. This is an area of great concern as little mistakes can lead to serious consequences.
  • Client management. By posting all client documents we have significantly reduced postage and rather than getting a phone call, the clients can see what is happening in their case.
  • Scheduling. This is a great way to keep on top of calendars and a better way to avoid missing deadlines.

Cons

AbacusLaw

  • AbacusLaw appears to drop billing codes randomly, which I am unsure if that is an issue on the Abacus side or the billing software side. It causes issues when the times comes for billing because codes have to be reentered.
  • Integration with the accounting server error if the server is randomly logged off. While it is an easy fix, it shouldn't be something that happens as frequently as it does.

It is so easy to use. We've had multiple people join our team and they don't have any issues using it right away. It's also easy to use new features as they're developed. I think everyone should have and use a simple case management platform, and MyCase is my usual recommendation.

The support is generally good and relatively quick BUT when there is a new product or something they want you to buy, I have felt a bit harassed at that point by sales but when I have an issue I don't feel like support jumps on it as quick.

Years ago, they were very supportive. They tend to address issues, but they aren't very communicative when dealing with feedback. They just add new features suddenly. There aren't many issues with our platform, so we don't have many questions now, but years ago, we did have some issues that needed to be addressed and then they were much more responsive.

Alternatives Considered

AbacusLaw

We have just used AbacusLaw but have looked into other similar products such as Clio and have been disappointed in what they offer compared to AbacusLaw.

MyCase

Prior to using MyCase, my firm relied on AbacusLaw for its CRM program. I have also used Amicus Attorney prior to that. AbacusLaw and Amicus Attorney were local area network programs using an onsite computer server. I started using MyCase so that I would have an entire cloud-based legal CRM program. At the time its best competitive feature was that the program was entirely cloud-based and that online retrieval of documents and client contact information was easily retrievable. The best contribution of these features is not just improving team collaboration, but improving efficient communication with clients by allowing them online access to their case file and secure communication with the client portal. Our Intake staff uses Clio Grow as a CMS (Contact Management System) despite some intake features being added my MyCase in the past year. Clio Grow has a Kanban board interface to manage incoming leads and improve intake team collaboration. MyCase's intake feature is new and less robust and intuitive to use compared to Clio Grow (formerly Lexicata).From the beginning, G Suite has always been an integral tool for email and calendar management. MyCase offers email and calendar support but G Suite is easiest to use on multiple platforms and hardware devices compared to MyCase.

Return on Investment

AbacusLaw

  • Absolutely has had a positive impact on ROI as we are able to more accurately keep track of timekeeping and bill for things we normally would ignore, leaving money on the table.

MyCase

  • Reduction trust accounting errors.
  • Reduction in cost of invoicing.
  • Increased client satisfaction by allowing the client 24-7 access to their case files.
  • Credit card processing fees are much lower than previously experienced.
