Likelihood to Recommend

Amicus Attorney

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

Clio

For solo and small practices Clio provides a lot of bang for the buck. Its billing and invoicing capabilities are very robust. Its integrations with other software packages, such as QuickBooks, Next Chapter, Mailchimp, etc. make it very easy to implement and grow marketing initiatives. It has the ability to create templates from existing documents that help improve efficiencies in creating client documents and keeping specific types of documents uniform. It has a logical flow to it. Even if you have never used it before and not gone through the onboarding process or tutorial videos, you can figure it out.

Pros

Amicus Attorney

  • Very efficient calendaring with sync to Outlook calendar (option of Exchange or Outlook level synchronization).
  • Case management including contacts, emails, documents, etc. to keep everything in one consolidated place.
  • Document automation including Word merging or HotDocs (third party). Take case data including custom pages and fields and instantly create documents based on templates with ease.

Clio

  • Timekeeping. All I have to do is open Clio in the morning and press the "start timekeeping" button if I am too lazy to type in a few words.
  • Billing. The new interface is really easy to use.
  • Calendar. I use two calendars for deadlines, etc. My G-Suites calendar and Clio.

Cons

Amicus Attorney

  • Partner channel doesn't really exist anymore
  • Support of the product is extremely poor
  • License agreement states you can only run it in their data center (not Azure or AWS, really Amicus?)

Clio

  • The billing screen is serviceable but unwieldy. It is hard to get your bills to look the way that you want in many cases.
  • The document management process could stand some improvement. In order to manipulate a document, you have to download it, work on it, then re-upload the new version. I'd like a local client or a seamless way to edit and then automatically see the update taken into Clio.
  • The task entry is good but not great. I'd like to see a way to have it integrate into my iPhone's reminders list.
  • The quickbooks online sync has been a constant source of frustration for our bookkeeper, who has to monitor daily and hardly ever goes a day without an item failing to sync.

Onboarding new employees has its challenges, but orienting in Clio has been an easy process for new learners. Also, when I have encountered questions, Clio support has immediate answers.

Rather than talk in generalities, I'll give two specific examples. First, after updating my OS, I got locked out of Clio. I was back in, up and running, with no loss of data, within an hour thanks to Clio customer support.Second, I made some specific recommendation for features that I thought would be useful. Those recommendations fell in a black hole, with the suggestion that I try a very buggy third party integration app. Clio is making lots of money from lawyers using its software. Why can't Clio create the integrations and test them if Clio is not willing to build them into its platform?

Alternatives Considered

Amicus Attorney

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

Clio

CLIO Grow is custom-tailored for law firms to use off the shelf with some advanced customization options. CLIO Grow has some superior API integration options that integrate with answering services, online chatbot, website contact forms to capture new leads and automatically include them in the intake pipeline. As mentioned previously it integrates with HelloSign for no additional costs.CLIO Grow also offers API integrations with Mailchimp to add prospects to email drip campaigns in addition to built-in automated email campaigns within its own software.These features make it far more user friendly, automated, and robust compared with MyCase's CRM feature, and Pipedrive (a non-legal specific CRM).

Return on Investment

Amicus Attorney

  • 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.

Clio

  • It has increased our efficiency in regards to onboarding clients and getting retainers signed.
  • The integrations with QuickBooks and other software platforms such as Mailchimp has allowed us to improve our marketing efforts and overall operations.
