Finally something to fully automate the new client intake process

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Streamlined approach to new intakes, fast client interviews and on the spot contract delivery. Call recording and Complete marketing source tracking. At a glace status on client contracts in process and who the process owner is which equates to full team accountability. Technical support is fast and knowledgeable, we have not had a technical question or issue that has not been immediately answered or resolved.

Cons

User interface is evolving and becoming more fluid and screen friendly. The upcoming version release looks to have refined the user interface, sleeker and better than before.

Thanks so much for the kind words Russell!

Comprehensive and efficient

Reviewed 4 years ago

The data system is fantastic, easy for the staff to use and easy for me to edit, run reports and overall make sure productivity is where it should be. I love this program and would recommend it to everyone that's interested in making a switch. The team at Law Ruler truly cares that you are happy and comfortable and making the switch was much easier than I had initially thought it would be.

Pros

We love the ease of use of Law Ruler, all the info you need to find is truly at your finger tips. We had been using a Lexus/Nesus system that was out dated and antiquated and we picked up Law Ruler as if we had been using it for years. Everyday the programmers are coming up with new ideas that boost our Client satisfaction and our productivity.

Cons

There is not much I miss from our old Database software but we had an option to set a monitor that would alert every internal user of an issue. If Law Ruler implemented the same it would be most helpful.

Vendor response

Thank you Samantha! We enjoy working with your firm and it is our pleasure to provide your firm with world-class support!

The Law Ruler Revolution

Reviewed 4 years ago

Revolutionary. That's really all that needs to be said. We are scaling our business and there is no greater engine to do this with than Law Ruler.

Pros

The first step of acquiring a new client is a lead and no software has better automated lead capture than Law Ruler.

It will offer your firm the ability to capture a new client as quickly and professionally as any other law firm out there. The...

Law Ruler Support Team

Reviewed 4 years ago

5-Stars! I've been through a massive transition from a CRM to an ERP. It was a miserable experience. With Law Ruler, my experience has been the complete opposite! Having a direct support contact (ours is [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]) makes the transition from Clio to Law Ruler a successful one. Plus he is a great teacher and communicator!

Pros

We love how Law Ruler is BOTH an intake and case management software. Everything under one roof! Plus, the interface is very easy to use! Software is one thing, but the support team is another. The Law Ruler Support Team is incredible!

Cons

Automations and the dialer can take some getting use to.

Vendor response

Thanks Carlina! We are glad that you enjoy the service and were able to find something more seamless than Clio/Clio Grow.

Great For My Practice

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have found the experience in using Law Ruler to be great. Whenever a migration to new software occurs, hiccups happen. They have been super responsive to all of our needs, and to our suggestions, and so would not hesitate to recommend Law Ruler. I'm really looking at unlocking the full potential for this software.

Pros

My team really loves the software. The workflows are exactly what I was looking to create, and the document automation is super simple to use.

Cons

I don't really love all the tabs on my browser that this creates, but that's a personal thing. It does make it easier to navigate back to the main screen by just closing tabs.

The best legal software that we run our practice on

Reviewed 4 years ago

I was able to do more with less, increase my lead conversion rate, and manage my disability cases in a much better way. We are exclusively a disability firm which comes with its own unique challenges. There is a massive amount of data to manage for each case and it has to be efficient or we lose money. Law Ruler has been incredible for us and solved this problem!

Pros

We like the built-in smart dialer feature that prioritizes our leads and has helped us grow the firm aggressively. The system itself is easy to use which helps since our staff is all virtual now because of covid. Also, I am not very technie so I put Law Ruler in touch with my vendors and they did the integrations for me. It saved me a lot of time and helped a lot!

Cons

We went through 2 other software systems before Law Ruler that had all failed to implement our workflow in a useful way. They all looked similar and were nice to look at, but the key difference is that Law Ruler had a consultant work with me to make Law Ruler conform to how we do business, and it was done in a month. The other companies who I won't mention were trying to force my firm to fit into how their software worked which failed miserably.

Thank you for your feedback, it is gladly appreciated!

Law Offices of Joshua Cohen Slatkin

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I have used Law Ruler for over 5 years and with good reason. Law ruler's intake software has enabled our law office to efficiently perform client intakes and send e-sign documents with the touch of a button. Law ruler has enabled us to streamline our intake process and perform more intakes and sign-ups. The customer service is hands down the best in the legal industry. Hillel Charm, my account manager, spent hours with me setting up my customized intakes and e-sign documents. We worked together on a weekly basis and customer service representatives are always available to help out. I highly recommended using law ruler for your intake and case management needs.

Cons

Does not integrate with all third party vendors

Law Ruler Rocks!

Reviewed 8 years ago

When our firm began using Law Ruler, we had an initial learning curve as I suppose most users do. After a few weeks of learning the system and with the prompt responsive support of Amanda, our firm now has an automated client intake system that has streamlined our client intake process and subsequently increased our client conversion rate. We are VERY pleased with Law Ruler and highly recommend this system to law firms who desire automation, organization and maximizing client contacts.

Pros

Automated emails and texts to clients. Depending on client status, automated contract, intake forms and medical release sent to clients. Auto alert when forms are completed and returned.

Cons

Very minor issue but the menu on the right of the screen seems to have same information as icons on right of screen. I told you it was very minor. I really do not have any problems at this time. Lawruler has stepped in and 'fixed' all of my concerns.

Thanks so much Karen! Appreciate the wonderful feedback!

Law Ruler helps us keep track of everything!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I can't not say enough wonderful things about Hillel Charm and our positive interactions. Hillel has helped our team get the most out of Law Ruler for our business.

Pros

I love that I can keep all records related to a client in one place. It is simple and easy to track where in our process a case lives and to create follow ups that make sense for us. Our dedicated Law Ruler resource, Hillel Charm, is great at helping our team work through business cases and how to use Law Ruler to effectively solve for these. The support team is quick and usually solves requests on the first or second contact. The dialer is extremely helpful to keep all contacts and notes in one place.

Cons

The calendar is missing features like recurring reminders and events.

About a month ago, I was reading all about every case management software known to man. If you are shopping for it you know how many there are. Then I read about Law Ruler on this web site.

Excellent Product for Simplifying Intake Process

Reviewed 3 years ago

Excellent. The customer service has been the best part.

Pros

Prior to subscribing to Law Ruler, we were doing intakes manually and sending out retainers the same way. This product has helped change that and drastically improved our efficiency and saved time and aggravation. Although we do not use it for case management, they have apparently made significant upgrades on that side as well and I know at least one attorney who switched over from his prior case management system and now uses Law Ruler for everything.

Cons

The fact that it is not yet integrated with Needles Neos, although that's not Law Ruler's fault.

Pros

Law Ruler is amazing for our client management! All our forms, documents, texts, etc. are now all in one place. We can easily send clients through our system and see at a glance what we need to do to finish our client's product. The support system is amazing! Our Account Manager, Mathew, is very helpful. Anytime we need to make a major change, have a question, or notice a glitch, he quickly helps us fix the problem.

Cons

There are a lot of features on the software. This makes it difficult to use at first. However, after a week we were able to use all the features with ease.

LEAD MANAGEMENT PORTAL

Reviewed 9 years ago

Law ruler has been an excellent addition to Hickey Law Firm! We began using Law Ruler as a trial to ensure that it was the best fit for the firm. After using the software for a few weeks and comparing other lead management software companies, we determined that Law Ruler was the best fit for our firm. The software is user-friendly and helps our firm keep accurate contact information for all of our leads as well as the current status of each lead received. We also appreciate all the tools the software provides, such as, setting reminders for contact with potential clients as well as a detailed analysis of the firms conversion rate in respect to leads.

Account Manager knowledge and responsiveness

Reviewed 4 years ago

I reached out to Law Ruler by email for some questions about how to customize a report. I received a reply in minutes. We set up a conference call and the changes were made in a matter of moments. All of my questions were answered fully. I had a great experience with account manager [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]

Pros

As an operations consultant for law firms, I am particularly interested in reporting capabilities and ease of use. I find Law Ruler easy to navigate with very effective reporting features that are improving all the time.
