Access Legal (DPS Software Spitfire)

If your business requires billing and invoicing on a regular basis, then this is the software for you. Other than this, you can use it for file sharing with your colleagues and team members, but if you require an ideal software which has great UI then it will not reach up-to your expectations.

It is perfect for law management as it has integrations with Lawpay, which is specific for operating and trust account billing. I am able to create custom intakes for a client to fill out, automated with a task when submitted, and then review and response. I am also able to use the forms for internal use to enter information and use templates to populate those fields onto documents that I create.

Cons

Access Legal (DPS Software Spitfire)

  • It’s graphs are hard to read and don’t have as many features as it’s competitors.
  • Not as user-friendly or intuitive as other options.
Omar Israel Sánchez Monroy | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • There are some features that are available on one part of the software but not on others. E.g., when creating a task, you can add and make new tags. But during the creation of a workflow, when making a task, you can't make new tags. You have to make the task outside of the workflow space.
  • An event whereby you can invite outside users/clients without creating a client portal.
  • If the client portal was a bit more robust, I would like to use it. See the first item; I am unable to make tasks through workflows with links to be populated for my clients to make client task easier when I need to direct them to a different webpage to complete an item.

I love the Support team. Available through chat on any screen on your practice panther. They say they respond within 24 hours but it's usually at most 3 hours and they direct you a solution or that confirm no available solution. The team at PP is always helpful and know how to follow up with issues in a timely manner.

Access Legal (DPS Software Spitfire)

Every software has its pros and cons but Access Legal has more pros than cons as it has integrated all the requirements of customers. I can get everything on the same platform from billing to invoicing, to reply[ing] to the customers and sending auto reply. Everything is there, so it is good.

I used Clio and Clio Grow. What Practice Panther is missing is the side that Clio grows offers. A more robust way on the intake/marketing side. You can use mail chip with Practice Panther but that integration is limited. However, there is a much better software called Lawmatics that integrates directly with PracticePanther. For PracticePanther and Clio direct head to head, the workflows of task, billing and user interface have better ease of use. To do the same thing, PracticePanther requires fewer clicks to get it done. When you have to do the same tasks over and over, the less clicking the better.

Return on Investment

Access Legal (DPS Software Spitfire)

  • Communication with coworkers.
  • Communication with other departments.
  • Communication with clients.
  • Filters a lot of spam.

  • I have been able to expedite time reviewing a file, organizing information so less time spent on workers.
  • The automated organization through integrations, like dropbox, to organize all my matters in a uniform manner. Saves time.
  • Ease of use has saved on training as instructions can be implemented directly on workflows. Saves time. Each time it saves a worker time, I am more efficient and my return on investment is apparent.
