Jason Oldenburg

Solid software with great OCR and search functions. Works well for my practice areas.

2017-08-09

It is my document management software for my law firm.

Pros

It has good search features and automatically OCR's all PDF.

Cons

The separation of notes and emails by general matter but not into specific sub folder does not make sense for my practice area as I have several open cases within a specific matter.

Uptime legal was superb to work with in connection with my conversion to LegalWorks

2017-07-13

Web access to my practice with heavy duty cloud security. More efficient organization of client matters which now have all emails and documents sequentially in one place.

Pros

I like the functionality of the program, particularly the ease of organizing all related emails and documents by client or firm matter.

Howard Bundy

Excellent document management program

2017-05-26

Better organization of an access to my documents.

Pros

Several items: all documents are searchable; it keeps documents organized and makes locating a document easy.

Cons

It still needs additional features (at least some of which I understand they are working on): smoother integration with at least one practice management software; a more robust local sync; and it needs a smoother integration with or its own archiving system.

JAZMIN MARTINEZ

Superb customer service and easy to use system!

2017-12-27

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

I dislike the fact that "closed matters" still appear on my desktop files, they do not appear on the web version of Uptime unless selected. If there was a way to make it a little more user friendly on the desktop version so our matters are not so crowded it would really help!

Barbara Rosen

We've used Legal Works since late March 2017 and like it.

2017-12-28

Better organization of files and of client emails in client files.

Pros

I also like the ability to save PDF documents as RTF documents so they can be edited.

Cons

It would be even better if the pre-transfer information became part of the description somehow automatically.

Great product.

2017-06-01

Pros

Office plugins are paralleled by none. Versioning is very powerful.

Cons

While you can access legal works from your phone, I also hope Uptime comes out with their own mobile app soon.

Uptime is aptly named since we have had very few disruptions in over 2 years.

2017-06-22

Efficient and economic storage and access to the necessary data of the firm.

Pros

Fairly easy to use and logical even for new hires.

Cons

Some of the features of legal works 1.0 are a bit clunky, specifically the calendar. The other thing that would be beneficial would be better access from smart phones.

This has been a very good product for our law firm

2017-06-20

Pros

This software is fairly easy to use and well organized.

Cons

Some of our staff not well versed on computers. Better training at the start would help. Ongoing training and classes would be a good idea.
