Pros

Overall, the best time and billing software out there. I have demo'd several and Clio was the clear winner.
Great support and excellent cloud-based option at a very reasonable price. Glad to see regular improvements and updates, taking user feedback into account.
Clio provides effective and easy invoice creation and it's quite secure. Additionally, its costumer service is just amazing.

Pros

User friendly , easy user interface increase productivity, ease collaboration. 360 degree over view due to the amazing dash boards.
Friendly use and what important is the best practices provide by the app4legal team.
The support team is really good. I recommend App4Legal for all legal practitioners working in both law-firms or in-house legal divisions.

Cons

I hate when I am asked for instructions on setting up their client portal because I have no instructions to give them.
This is especially clear in light of its competition, Abacus or AbacusNext or AbacusLaw or whatever other evil derivative product they put out there which is all horrible in my experience.
My client started having trouble uploading her documents to me. Assignments went missing, and so deadlines were missed.

Cons

The terms in the software doesn't match with our region. Need to editor inside the software to write responses and editing lawsuits.
I think there some edges hard to be understood from the money module.
