if you have a legal practice... you need to try this software

2019-03-25

Pros

what I like the most about this software is that it facilitates our teamwork at the office because every document of every case we handle is available to everyone in the office so you don´t need to send them anything, they just need to get use to the software.

Cons

At the beggining it was not easy to understand all the features of the software but as everything it was just about time to get used to it.

Everything done.

2018-07-24

Pros

It takes time to learn how to use it, but once you get the hang of it it's amazing. The reminders are excellent and you can send reminders to others.

Cons

Learning curve. However, you need to think of it as a paper file with the different tabs . It takes some time to learn how to use it but it's great.

Legal Files Review

2019-09-19

The organization of Legal Files is outstanding.

Pros

It is user friendly, easy to learn.

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.
