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

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
CARET (Abacus Data Systems, Inc. )
  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

I call. They answer. They speak English and they know exactly what I need to know to answer the questions when I call them. Probably the best customer support I have experienced. Personable and friendly staff

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

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
CARET (Abacus Data Systems, Inc. )
  • 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.
