Legal Files Review

The organization of Legal Files is outstanding.

Pros

It is user friendly, easy to learn. You can totally go paperless with this software which saves you money and time.

Cons

When transferring information from one file to another, it is difficult to transfer emails, you have to do them 1 at a time which is time consuming. It would be very nice if LF can figure out a way to be able to transfer a bulk of emails at a time. Thank you.

We have had Legal Files since 1999 and I can't imagine how I would have been able to accomplish all that I do in any given day without Legal Files. It has helped us tremendously to work as one unit even though we are in 22 offices. As a manager, not always on the scene, it is detrimental for me to be able to access any information I need and it lets me do that without being in the office.

Pros

Extremely useful in the legal field. It takes time to learn how to use it, but once you get the hang of it it's amazing. The reminders are excellent and you can send reminders to others.

Cons

Learning curve. However, you need to think of it as a paper file with the different tabs . It takes some time to learn how to use it but it's great.

Our Corporate Compliance uses this app for corporate compliance issue tracking/matter management

Pros

1. It runs on multiple DBs
2. Customer Service is great
3. On site Training is included
4. Easy to learn and use
5. It is error free once installed.

Cons

1. User Interface is a little oldish and although can be easily assimilated & understood, is not 21st century
2. Every installation is customized. So IT needs some time to devote to it. But once installed, there are no errors or usage issues.
