MyCase Unveils Social Practice Management Software
Advanced client communications and collaboration help small firms and solo attorneys build successful practices.
San Diego, CA – January 27, 2011 – MyCase, Inc. today announced the release of MyCase 2.0. The new version expands the cloud-based client portal by incorporating critical practice management, time & billing, and trust accounting features with a social networking style that is instantly familiar to attorneys, staff, and clients.
MyCase, social practice management, advances client communications and collaboration, increases mobility, and helps attorneys build successful practices. Combining intuitive social networking style communication with practical practice management features, MyCase will change how lawyers think about legal practice management (LPM) software.
Incorporating the standard LPM features necessary to run a practice, including contacts, cases & matters, events, tasks, documents, time & billing, and trust accounting, MyCase offers small firms and solo practitioners everything they need on a day-to-day basis.
“Although software has been available for over twenty-five years, LPM has been adopted by less than 40% of the market. With lawyers citing the two primary reasons for non-adoption as ‘our current method works’ and ‘overall cost of LPM,’ it’s clear their real needs were not being met,” said Matthew Spiegel, Esq., President & CEO of MyCase, Inc. “MyCase is low-cost and fundamentally changes the relationship between client and attorney. By allowing, and encouraging client interaction and collaboration, clients are more informed, appreciate the attorney’s services, and require less direct communication. Attorneys and their staffs welcome the self-service aspect, the ease of accepting online payments, and the reduced stress levels.”
A cloud-based application, MyCase is both platform and device independent. Users appreciate the clean, social networking style interface and the fact that clients can access the system 24/7, obtain status updates, view and upload documents, and ask questions in a secure environment.
