Pros

It also looks great and not antiquated like many other legal software programs. Lastly, Merus has amazing and customer support.
It is easy to hit the ground running with this software. It would be great to have a "helpful hints" option pop up when using a feature, like in Microsoft.
The calendar is simple to use and can help you filter by person which is incredibly useful. Overall a very pleasing software that can increase productivity and help you manage day to day tasks.

Pros

The customer service is incredibly responsive and helpful. I don't have anything other than great things to say about Lawcus.
It's modern in function and appearance, fairly easy to use, and the customer support is FANTASTIC. I switched from Clio to this software because I like all the customizations.
It's organization is the best of all other software out there. Very feature rich and growing.

Cons

It's really hard to find much fault. I would say if anything, making it easier to find dates of loss and claim numbers so that their uniform throughout the system.
For me, something I have noticed from the beginning was that after every update the software has crashed. I work for the Personal Injury Department it is not as user-friendly as it is for WC.
I dislike when features don't work. For example, when I upload a pdf into the case, the preview is not always as immediately available.

Cons

Unlike most programs, which are (poor) billing software with other (poor) things built around it, Lawcus is a CRM and Project Management tool.
There were some functions missing that have since been added.
I think integration with zappier to the lead management part of the software is missing.
