While Clio seemed fine in the beginning, it's limitations quickly become apparent. The fact you cannot save files created in word directly to Clio, but first have to save to your computer then upload is a real drawback. So after 2+ years,, I decided to switch programs. What a nightmare. Before deciding to go with Clio I specifically inquired about transferring files if I didn't like Clio. I was assured that all files can be downloaded either to a new program or to my computer quite easily. Just a few clicks. That is an outright lie. Files cannot be easily transferred or downloaded. And forget about help from Clio. It's cost 100's of $ to have someone come in a download files individually. Some files won't download because they are corrupted on Clio's end and have to be opened individually and then saved to your computer. I won't recommend Clio to my worst enemy.Clio's only pro used to be it's price. However, recent price increases negate that pro also.

Review Source: Capterra

We've been using Clio for just over a year now in our firm. We've added several new people and consolidated a number of software programs into a much smaller number of programs. The contacts management and documents management features of Clio are not as robust as the other solutions we're using, and we'd like to see some improvements in the contacts system and the ways bills are run and sent. However, the time entry is MUCH easier now, it's overall fairly easy to learn the system and set up new users, and the ability to link contacts to matters is vastly helpful for our conflicts checking (assuming you use it). Clio is not going to magically make your life better; you still have to learn to use it and then make sure it gets used correctly (we have some attorneys here who haven't been as good about that as the staff and some of the other attorneys have been), but it's so worth the effort. And, if you have a problem, their support staff is fantastic. Quick to respond, very helpful and polite, and if they have to tell you that the requested fix isn't available yet they'll at least assure you that it's being put on the list for future improvements. We looked at a lot of practice management solutions, and I think we made the right choice in going with Clio.Time tracking is very easy, and it handles multiple matters for the same client very well. Reports are useful, most of them. Tasks and the system allowing you to make records of phone conversations are great. Clio Connect and the ability to share documents with clients and others is fantastic.

Our law firm has been utilizing Clio as our practice management system for over six years. It is hands down the best practice management system on the market today. It builds immense value, streamlining, efficiency, and organization to our business. From customizable document templates, to unlimited cloud-based document storage Clio is a one-stop shop that covers all bases. It is a definite value add, is extraordinarily easy to use and customize, and we couldn't run our practice without it. If you have considered switching to a new practice management system, we highly recommend Clio! Additionally, the customer support team is incredibly helpful, and can help you find solutions to any problems that may arise while implementing and using Clio.The reasonable price, the customizable templates, the ease of use, and the simplified yet robust invoicing and billing functionality.

Clio allows us to be more efficient. It is not cheap, but remember that you are not spending money on a server or an IT company. And it allows our team to work from anywhere - car, home, coffee shop, ...The interface is simple. Non-computer folks are able to use it quickly. Integration with Outlook (contacts, tasks and calendar) great for us. They also make constant updates that are great to see. They are now integrating with Office 365 directly instead of a desktop app. I understand that integration with gMail is even better (but we like O365). Time keeping is also easy. There are also lots more features than we are using, but we have them on our roadmap to implement (like document automation).

Clio has been a great add on for our firm for the last several years. We are relying on it more and more each month. I usually have Clio pulled up in 3 distinct windows at a time to facilitate instant navigation. As it updates upon refresh, and instantly within its window, it has been a great way to multitask across client issues such as scheduling, time entries and specific tasks. We primarily use Clio as a task manager and billing, but there are many other functions that we have not utilized, but are looking forward to. We will be sticking with Clio. Scheduling and Billing

It's easy to use, yet it has a nice dept of customization which lets you shape it to your personal needs. The user interface lets you maximize your clicks and your keyboard shortcuts to save time. The integration team saved us lots of time by expertly migrating or old data from our previous homemade client system. The automated templates are a great time saver. You take a little time to automate your motion and you don't have to fill the obvious parts anymore.

Overall Good, BUT, They Priced Themselves Out of the Market

Reviewed 2016-01-30
Review Source: Capterra

The product is easy to use, but for small consumer protection firm (7 full time staff and 2 part time) like me they have priced themselves out of the market by increasing the cost of a each license by over 100% for support staff and about 50% for attorneys. I don't have to pay that right now because I'm been with Clio since day one and am "legacy," BUT, if I want access to new features I do have to pay it. I'd love, for example, to have access to Office 365 integration, but I'd have to double my cost for it to almost a $828.00 a year PER USER. I have 9 people who use Clio (only three full time lawyers and one part time contractor and the rest support staff, some also part time) and right now that costs me about $3,456.00 a year, which is really steep, BUT, it would cost me $7,452.00 A YEAR to get new features now. YIKES. That's 215% of the steep prices I'm paying now, and I figure it's just a matter of time before I HAVE to upgrade.

The monthly price for Clio is well worth the price. It saves me many hours every month on administrative tasks (I used to do them without Clio, so I know how long they took) frees me up to get to my client matters and major projects. The biggest time-saver is billing, which used to take me several hours each month, but now takes only a few minutes.

Not a Fan of New Tiered Pricing

Reviewed 2017-02-06
Review Source: Capterra

Clio provides most of the features a small law firm needs. It is beautifully intuitive. However, the new tiered pricing puts some of the most important features into the higher tiers and out of reach of small firms and solos. Additionally, Clio puts features that should go together, like custom fields and document automation, into different tiers. Most cloud options offer one-size-fits-all pricing. That may be a good thing.
