Best Case

Legal case management tool for handling bankruptcy events

About Best Case

Best Case is a legal case management software that assists attorneys with case preparation, petition filing, data collection, reporting, and more. Using OneTouch®, legal professionals can upload documents, docket case information, and file emergency petitions electronically. It integrates with Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook that helps users view scheduled bankruptcy events and court hearings on a centralized platform.

With Best Case’s ECF Manager module, firms can scan, organize, and store files, including prepared forms, previously filed documents, activity records, and receipts, in a centralized database. Managers can collect clients’ information using questionnaires, create local or federal forms by adding drop-down menus, charts or tables, and convert court-compliant documents into PDF format. Attorneys can use the means test calculator to view Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or Census Bureau charts in real-time and calculate clients’ average income to determine potential presumption of abuse.

Organizations can filter clients’ information based on case status or dates, monitor adversary proceedings, and store envelops, labels or letters in a document library. Best Case enables users to identify discrepancies in claims, maintain a log of customer interactions, and streamline follow-up processes.

We do all our chapter 7 bankruptcies, and the program allows non lawyers an easy learing curve, with the power of onscreen review (as opposed to printing paper)

Pros

Crisp and clean interface, great support, easily modifiable forms, standard input templates,

Cons

No internal mechanism to back up, we had to create our own specialized backup, there is a file that will not copy by Robocopy, that forces a folder by folder saving. There is also a lack of systems archiving of completed files Also, the creditor number boxes are too small so the numbers take up 2 lines and it looks funny

Overall I had a positive experience with it, but as time went on and other parts of practice and life became more user friendly, it felt that BestCase was being left behind.

Pros

Was really good software when I started using it in 2001, there have been updates since, but still feels like a Windows 98 software application. Is useful for generating documents needed to file bankruptcy cases.

Cons

It is very dated. They had promised to provide web based option for several years but it constantly seems to be delayed. There are much better other options out there now.

Response from CINgroup

Thanks for taking the time to review, Joseph. Best Case Online is currently in Alpha testing. We're focused on offering the most complete, robust web-based solution possible, which can take time. We're excited for what's in store and hope you'll take a look when it's ready to share with our customers.

Good Product for Banruptcys

Reviewed on 2021/01/21

Pros

It is a complete program . With any program there is a learning curve. Unlike most programs it is very detailed. Which some trustees like. Everything you need is included in the program, form letters to the Questionaire to give to the client. It is an all inclusive program.

Cons

Very Expensive for a small firm. The yearly cost to maintain this program is a killer. At times the yearly update changed the program which caused a new learning curve for staff, which caused delays. Because it is so detailed the Questionaire is very detailed which is over whelming to people who are already over whelmed.

I love doing small bankruptcies. People get immediate relief on the initial consultation. Best Case allows me to tell 95% of them exactly what is going to happen during the process. I am a computer person, and this is the best functioning software I have ever used.

Pros

I have filed about 800 Chapter 7s using Best Case. Their one-touch filing of the first petition has always worked, even as the court changed from older software to ECF, and even when the Means Test was introduced. I have cannot remember ever having to fill in the initial forms manually. The deluge of filings in 2005, in the two weeks before the Means Test started, was heavier than it ever was during the financial crises, and Best Case hung in there. Considering that one-touch is basically a huge macro, I was amazed. Adding credit reports was a real plus. The quick access to the docket is very helpful. I am a one-person office, with a part-time secretary, and this software is what made a small bankruptcy practice possible.

Cons

The new forms that came out two years ago were a little strange, to say the least. Best Case responded by mirroring some of the strangeness. The two, almost but not quite duplicate, questions about sole proprietor businesses are not clear on the forms, and I was hoping Best Case would offer more clarity on the forms. They have simplified some of the forms double negatives, but the screen layouts do not flow as well as they could.
I am always nervous when a small, excellent company gets bought out by successively bigger companies, because eventually the drive for cost-cutting goes to the heart of the product. Management decisions are made by non-lawyers. So far so good with Best Case.
A lot of the newer add-ons are not useful for my size office, but I cannot say they are negatives.

Response from CINgroup

Thank you for reviewing Best Case, David! We're so glad the software has been such a great tool for you over the past 20 years (and thank you for 20 years of business!).

Throughout the years and changes, providing best-in-class product and quality support has been, and will continue to be, our top priority.
