ProLaw - A boost to any size firm!We utilize ProLaw to manage our entire organization. We use it to document any and all legal matter information, billing, etc. The software is all encompassing so it really addresses all issues. When searching legal software it was really difficult to find a software program similar to what I was used to utilizing in the fortune 500 businesses that handled everything a law firm needed to do. I was excited when I finally stumbled onto ProLaw after a six-month search and trial of numerous programs.,ProLaw allows you to bill your time simply and highly effectively which makes the program valuable. The accounting portion of the software is set up to be very simple to use even for those who are not versed in accounting. It is a simple deposit into an account and a check out of the account. The ability to create custom document templates allows you to save countless hours of wasted time cutting and pasting when used in conjunction with stock and custom matter data tabs. When the proper business practices are put in place, the properly organized data contained within a matter can allow even non legal employees the ability to provide first class customer service to clients with questions on their legal matter.,ProLaw has been working on easier ways to add multiple documents to emails without flipping back and forth or changing document names to the storage number of the document in its database. Although you can export billing information to an excel sheet, it would be beneficial if one could print all billed items for a matter that included the description of the billed event rather than just the amounts. Currently the only way to do this would be by printing statements.,10,ProLaw's time-saving features allow you to do more with less people. Human capital is the most expensive cost a business faces so the ability to keep your team organized and busy with less stress allows you a better profit. ProLaw's integrated third party software for merchant processing has allowed me the ability to save countless hours on accounting fees as the entire credit card posting process is automated. This accounts for 70% or more of all of our journal entries!,,QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions, Microsoft 365 BusinessWhy we choose ProLawMy current law firm uses ProLaw throughout the entire organization. We use all of the features of ProLaw in both front and back-office operations. ProLaw provides us with an all in one solution for our law firm needs from timekeeping, contact management, document management to accounting and financial reporting.,Through system security attorneys, paralegals, secretaries and accounting staff have access to our client's entire files at their fingertips. Whether it be contact info, documents, case status and/or financial information. There are a multitude of ways for timekeepers to enter their time into the system. I don't have to worry about fitting a square peg into a round hole, rather there is probably a solution for a particular timekeeper already built into the system. The flexibility of SSRS report writing allows me to basically get any report/combination of reports I need to operate the business.,ProLaw could use expanded mobile features and/or make the Portal part of the program rather than a separate piece to purchase. I'd love to have the old system of annual conferences wherein it was only ProLaw and many, many classes offered each day. Location much more low key and therefore less costly for firms to attend. I enjoyed the longer conference platform. Simplify report writing, not sure how but make it easier. Releases seem to be coming out too often, two a year are a lot, would rather see fixes than new releases.,10,We have reduced secretarial and accounting staff needs We have eliminated our off site storage costs We now have a way for attorneys, if allowed, to see all accounting on a client afterhours, weekends and not have to wait until accounting is in the office to get that information.,PerfectLaw and OrionPowerful and Easy to Use - What Else Do You Need?Our law firm uses ProLaw as our document management solution. It helps us keep case files organized, updated, and reachable at all times. Everyone at our firm uses the program every day — from reception all the way to attorney partners.

Poor sidekick to the very powerful quick-find.,8,Decreases need for spending on case files, paper, and printing. Increases accessibility of documents, lightening the need for hauling of case files Better teamwork on case filing, as everything can be done digitally - multiple people can work on the same document and have everything available immediately.,20,3,Document Management - Organizing Case Filing Document Accessibility - Reviewing and updating case files while on the road or away from office Calendar management - Keeping important dates in one location alongside important files and documents,Using "placeholder" documents alongside the children function as folders Cloud storage — accessible anywhere you can get access to an internet connection,Hopefully allow our firm to go largely paperless with case filing,10

  • ProLaw allows you to bill your time simply and highly effectively which makes the program valuable.
  • The accounting portion of the software is set up to be very simple to use even for those who are not versed in accounting. It is a simple deposit into an account and a check out of the account.
  • The ability to create custom document templates allows you to save countless hours of wasted time cutting and pasting when used in conjunction with stock and custom matter data tabs.
  • When the proper business practices are put in place, the properly organized data contained within a matter can allow even non legal employees the ability to provide first class customer service to clients with questions on their legal matter.
  • ProLaw has been working on easier ways to add multiple documents to emails without flipping back and forth or changing document names to the storage number of the document in its database.
  • Although you can export billing information to an excel sheet, it would be beneficial if one could print all billed items for a matter that included the description of the billed event rather than just the amounts. Currently the only way to do this would be by printing statements.
I feel this software platform is beneficial to companies of all scales and honestly cannot think of a scenario that it would not be appropriate. ProLaw addressed all issues concerning the documentation, organization, and managing of all legal matters. It provided a robust document preparation platform and allows me to customize almost every aspect of the system. ProLaw provides excellent support for issues and will assist you in creating business practices around the program for a fee. Most importantly it provides a sound way to manage and know your finances including up to the minute financial information for all legal matters when the proper business practices are present.

I use to think ProLaw was for a big firm but I no longer think that is has a limit. I see the value to small firms due to the all in one functionality. ProLaw actually works wonderfully for firms who have a few people with many job tasks or oversight as everything is at their fingertips.

I find it is best in hourly or flat billing firms rather than contingency matters.

Law firms or attorneys looking to manage case files digitally, go completely or partially paperless, or that want to modernize their approach to document management should look in to ProLaw. Probably not very suitable to anyone outside the legal realm, but incredibly powerful for lawyers and their firms.
