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

Clio is perfect for solo practitioners and small firms. I handle a small number of complex cases, and it takes care of timekeeping and invoicing. I think it would be outstanding in a high-volume practice (criminal law, Social Security, personal injury, WHA practices).

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

  • Clio is great at being accessible in a lot of places - it's accessible anywhere.
  • Clio does a good job at allowing time entry - it's particularly easy to enter time onto Clio.
  • Clio does a good job at maintaining consistent access to client files and info related to them. I can count on one hand the number of times it's been slow to respond in the past year.

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

  • Currently we sync Clio with our accounting program Xero. Sometimes the sync doesn't happen (i.e. invoices) and I have to recreate them in Xero. It would be helpful if Clio had its own full-service accounting program.
  • Sometimes find a matter within a client is unnecessarily difficult - all matters associated with a client should be easily discoverable.
  • A minor issue - but I would like the ability to move calendar items around or reduce the box size surrounding appointments.

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

I selected Clio for the app integrations which appeared better than Rocket Matter. I am lucky to have a fiancê in tech who has helped me tremendously with automation and Clio has been relatively easy to use. When I selected Clio, it didn't look like Rocket Matter had the same level of app integration that I wanted.

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

  • Improved mobility though cloud access and excellent mobile app.
  • Billing process is streamlined. Clients can make payments electronically through the Clio portal!
  • Needs the ability to better sort and organize custom data.
