    Makes it very easy to create client files and comply with trust/general account compliance.

    Pros

    The ulaw software makes it very easy to comply with the Rules of Professional Conduct (Law Society of Ontario) especially with Knowing your Client requirements. Ulaw allows you to generate an initial conflict check form and client identification/verification form. I recently went through the LSO Practice Management Audit, and the LSO was very impressed with Ulaw's Inital Conflict Check form because it allowed the form includes the steps the lawyer undertook to perform the conflict checks.

    Cons

    If you make a accounting error it is hard to rectify it if you don't understand how the software works or accounting principles.

    - the best solution I've used (it's simple, yet robust)
    - the user support is amazing
    - online videos are extremely helpful

    Pros

    Able to work on my files and accounting from anywhere.

    Pros

    I like that it is web-based. It combines all of the functions needed for a law firm practice, including criminal and family.
    I like the function that allows me to import my banking information. It is helpful to switch between client matters and accounting.
    The customer service is extremely responsive and you don't have to pay extra for their support. They have altered areas that need improvement.

    Cons

    I wish it had more functionality with iPhones. It would be helpful to automatically allow update of monthly expenses (parking).
    Entering in expenses is some cumbersome, but detailed.
    Cannot delete default items (such as tenant or contract legal work) or contacts or matters that were entered in error. Makes it cluttered and annoying to search.

    I have been with Ulaw for about 11 years both as a student and as a practitioner and they have always been very helpful and very receptive to suggestions and implementing these suggestions as quick as they could/can. The tech support in my opinion is second to none.

    Pros

    In a nut shell everything--as far as I am concerned it is tailor made for the legal profession especially for paralegals. It has the price point, tech support(fantastic by the way). They also conduct CPD's that are LSO accredited AT No Charge-which is worth the monthly fee right there.

    Cons

    It would be nice to have it integrated / synced with 1 note.
