Cloud-based document management software for legal firms

4.12/5 (17 reviews)

LegalWorks overview

Uptime LegalWorks provides document management and email management solutions to legal firms, enabling users to create separate documents and files for each client. Cases can be stored in the software with their client name, case type, evidence, statements, notes, and emails attached.

The software provides flexible search options enabling users to search for particular files or folders within the software database. All documents are assigned a document ID which can be used by case workers to locate them. Users can set access restrictions on sensitive or confidential documents, ensuring they're only visible to those authorized.

LegalWorks can be mapped with Windows Explorer which enables users to copy and paste files stored in Windows directly into the software database. The software saves all previous versions of a document every time a document is modified. Users can review old versions of the same document in the version history and add comments for others. Users can also set up message alerts for folders, meaning they're sent an email whenever changes are made in that particular folder.

Better organization of files and of client emails in client files.I like the ease of use and speed of updating files. I also like the ability to save PDF documents as RTF documents so they can be edited. So far we've only used the basic plan but we are planning to upgrade in early 2018 to the professional legal works package.

Having a place to store everything and know that it is secure and accessible.Customer service. No matter how great a program is, if you cant get help when you need it it doesn't matter. I don't think i have ever waited more than 5 minutes to get an agent on the phone, and usually it's within 2 minutes.

Able to access documents even if we are not in the office, the ability to search old cases/documents using key words and the ability to personalize notes in every matter. The ability to obtain case information/file information anywhere I am as long as I have a Wi-Fi/internet connection and the ability to search for any documents using keywords.

It is my document management software for my law firm.The customer service is amazing. They are very timely and helpful. The system is very easy to work with and the conversion from my old practice software was pretty much seamless. It has good search features and automatically OCR's all PDF. It works well with window's explorer so moving files within the system is very easy to do. The uploading of documents and files is super easy and quick.
