Law practice management software is changing. New, cutting-edge web applications are bursting onto the scene, making life more simple for busy attorneys.One such program is called Rocket Matter. Rocket Matter allows lawyers to keep track of all their cases/matters, contacts, calendar, billing, accounting, time, messaging, conflicts, and more. The cost of this web service is a monthly fee.
Another service called Clio offers “Practice Management Simplified.” It provides a way for document management, scheduling, time tracking, and billing. The price for this service is also a monthly fee.
When I first started my law practice, I went with the traditional methods of local software installs. $300+ for Microsoft Office and $300+ for Quickbooks. The new web 2.0 online applications may make software packages like these obsolete in the near future.
