Pros

Maintenance is awesome and worth every penny. Flexibility in use with other programs is absolutely flawless.
For me, the billing and reporting functions are great. Customer support is accessible, knowledgeable and a big help.
I have been using this software for over 15 years and I still love it. With every upgrade they have listened and thoughtfully made great upgrades.

Pros

I love that you can create a client and have it automatically be added to the QBO customer list. Support staff is friendly, helpful and very responsive.
Easy to use, intuitive, top notch support for the occasional issue, which has been rare. Integration with QuickBooks is pretty well seamless, makes time keeping and billing very easy.
Overall it has been pretty good, there are a lot of useful features and is mostly much faster than PCLaw.

Cons

You have to do a reverse update to open and print old charges which is annoying when that info is needed. I print the bill each month so that I have the record handy.
Somewhat uncomfortable with use for flat fees.
It is very difficult to navigate and hard to learn if you are not trained well, and especially if you do not have significant bookkeeping experience.

Cons

I think the fact that I have to pay for Quickbook Online, which I repeat I hate, in order to use LeanLaw is an additional cost that I do not feel like I should have to pay.
I have problems when implementing specific time entries.
But that's as much a QB problem as LL. Not a full-blown practice manager, but I knew that going in.
