What is considered the best legal time& billing/document management software (combined) out there today?
The functions you are require are generally covered by legal practice management software. There are a number of cloud based solutions for practice management like Clio Practice Panther Rocket Matter MyCase Jarvis Legal . Of these Clio is probably the biggest and most well known. Since they are the biggest Clio has the advantage of having a number of built in integrations to choose from. Billing and document management are generally included in the software for all thepanies I mentioned above. Each service has its own advantages and disadvantages. Jarvis Legal or example has Spanish support and the best free case deals to get started (5 cases for free). I know that billing for Clio is handled through LawPay () as an integration. Almost all the above software will have Dropbox (and other document services like Box and OneDrive) support if you are already use those services. The document management for practice management software is generally primitive. You can really search through the documents load email files do OCR etc. If you are looking for the ability to do extended document management then consider using DropBox () or similar and it to the practice management as an integration. Or look at an e-discovery review service like the one mypany makes - ( e-discovery simplified s ). The more advanced e-discovery review platforms will have support for loading email (pstmbox eml msg) doing OCR MS Office files and the ability to search through all of these files. As well as tagging files and production with bates stamping. Prices for the practice management software range from $3 per month - $19 per month. However keep in mind that the pricing structure varies with thepany. Some are per case others are per user and of user. Websites and Pricing summary Clio - Clio Legal Case & Practice Management Software (or ) - $39-$19 Practice Panther - Secure Law Practice Management Software | PracticePanther - $39349 Jarvis Legal - Practice and case management software - Jarvis Legal 5 cases free and then $39349 per month MyCase - Case Management Software | MyCase s $39 for attorneys $29 for paralegals Rocket Matter - Rocket Matter | Cloud Based Legal Software s I couldn find their pricing. But should be around the same as the others. Zelican - Legal Case Management Software for Lawyers | Zelican s has a 3 days free trial (full feature) & $35 for paid plan which is pricepetitive with the rest. These options are all cloud based. If you require on-premise solutions where you install and maintain the software yourself Im sorry I am not familiar with any. Im also assuming that you are asking about North America based software. If not I would rmend Jarvis Legal and Clio only. I know that both thosepanies have overseas presence. Personally I have dealt with Clio and Jarvis Legal and would rmend those products.
