Pros

FANTASTIC client support. Agent is the best support person that I've had the pleasure of getting assistance from across all of the technical systems and software that I've used.
The next best thing is that for lawyers on a shoestring budget it is affordable and secure because it can be run off the cloud. So I give it two thumbs up for price, accessibility and price.
The Quickbooks connector is great and the Evernote integration is also a big plus. After reviewing all our other options, Houdini ESQ seemed like the best and least expensive place to start and grow.

Pros

Its impressive user friendliness and visually simplistic feel brings the fun back to handling a case. We have found the system flawless since the going live around 15 months ago.
The customer support is fantastic. This was our first time using a case management software and we love that everything is all in one place.
A good selection of reports that can be run to extract vital information for running your business. The integration with Xero accounting for the practice's own accounting is very good.

Cons

Sometimes it looses some of my cases especially if someone else has made the case and then appointed it to me. The search field is usually not working.
Lack of a functioning document automation/assembly system and lack of quickbooks integration.
Not so many companies will go the extra mile to save one from themselves especially after having failed to heed their explicit warnings.

Cons

Does not work with Mac and use of parallel software required to run LEAP slows and damages Mac.
Does not work easily for litigation or family law practice.
I have lost a lot of money and clients due to using Leap.
