When you need to have effective communication and records of it with coworkers and/or clients. Calendar function sends a notification 15 minutes prior [to] an appointment or event and at the specific time of the appointment. Is not as well suited on calendar as it is not [very] intuitive.

Amicus Attorney can probably be deployed very well in a law office that has a manager specifically dedicated to making it run smoothly, and who can keep track of the contacts, etc. In our firm, no one can spend the time to do this, so the information stored by Amicus gets a little disorganized, which has the effect of slowing us down

    In the time that I have been with my firm, we have not used any other comparable software. As a result I can't compare it to anything else that is out there

    • Large software investment, if not properly configured and utilized this can be a time and money vacuum.
    • If law firm does not have a consistent personality among employees, buy-in may be difficult as it's a significant workflow change for users.
    • Can greatly benefit law firm if used properly and across board for all employees. Uniform data organization for cases and custom pages add to personalizing software for firm.
