    Pros
    I find it to be easy to use and very good for keeping our documents and matters organized. The integration with Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Word, and Adobe Acrobat is seamless.
    In addition, whenever I have had occasion to work with their trainers and customer service personnel, they have been very knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend Legal Files.
    Additionally, I found Legal Files did not overwhelm the user, which makes it perfect for small to medium sized law firms. Larger law firms may want more complex feeling programs.
    Cons
    Documents are not arranged chronologically so it is difficult to find the most recent version.
    When transferring information from one file to another, it is difficult to transfer emails, you have to do them 1 at a time which is time consuming.
    Not everything is very intuitive about the software. Less experienced computer users have a hard time with it.

    Legal Files Review

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    The organization of Legal Files is outstanding.

    Pros

    It is user friendly, easy to learn. You can totally go paperless with this software which saves you money and time.

    Cons

    When transferring information from one file to another, it is difficult to transfer emails, you have to do them 1 at a time which is time consuming. It would be very nice if LF can figure out a way to be able to transfer a bulk of emails at a time. Thank you.

    IT GOT US THROUGH UNTIL WE FOUND SOMETHING BETTER.

    Pros

    IT WAS KIND OF MEDIOCRE FOR EVERYTHING. IT SYNCED WELL WITH MICROSOFT OFFICE PRODUCTS AND ADOBE ACROBAT.

    Cons

    SO DIFFICULT TO LEARN/USE (I AM PRETTY TECH SAVVY). TERRIBLE REPORTING.

    Vendor response

    Great Program

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    We have had Legal Files since 1999 and I can't imagine how I would have been able to accomplish all that I do in any given day without Legal Files. It has helped us tremendously to work as one unit even though we are in 22 offices. As a manager, not always on the scene, it is detrimental for me to be able to access any information I need and it lets me do that without being in the office.
