I could not survive without MyCase's law practice management software. It is 100% the backbone of my law firm.
Spodek Law Group
Law practice management software is designed to manage a firm's case and client records, billing, calendar schedules, tasks, and deadlines. A robust solution like MyCase also includes the ability to track and manage prospective clients via lead management, electronically sign documents with eSignature, communicate securely with clients via online client portal, receive and automatically reconcile online payments, and much more.
The “best” law practice management software is the one that serves the unique needs and challenges of your law firm. There are a broad range of law practice management solutions out there in the marketplace; what’s best for your firm may not be best for others.
As you shop for legal software, take into consideration the weak points in your law firm’s operations. If, for example, your practice is struggling to get invoices paid, search for software that offers comprehensive billing functionality. If onboarding new clients is a persistent challenge, make client intake a must-have feature in your prospective solution. The only way to find out which solution best suits your needs is to request a demo (or a trial) and see it for yourself.
MyCase, for instance, is designed to help your firm run efficiently from anywhere, provide an exceptional client experience, and easily track firm performance in order to reach your business goals. We offer product demonstrations and a full-access free trial so you can explore the software fully before making a buying decision.
With all the rapid changes happening in the legal industry, law practice management has become a necessity in modern law firms rather than a nice-to-have amenity. Whether you’re working remotely or occupying a physical office, managing and overseeing the full breadth of your firm’s administrative operations is considerably more challenging without a centralized system in place that’s accessible to your entire staff no matter where they are.
MyCase makes it easy to manage your cases, staff, billing, leads, client communications, finances, documents, and overall performance all in one easy-to-use solution that can be accessed from anywhere.
To stay competitive in today’s demanding legal climate, law firms need to get more done, faster, no matter where staff happen to be. Law practice management software enables firms to save time by streamlining standardized processes, keeping staff in sync from anywhere, centralizing critical case details in a single location, and delivering an exceptional client experience via convenient online collaboration and flexible payment options.
Before moving forward with a new software, it’s highly recommended that leaders within your organization get buy-in from the staff who will ultimately use the technology in their day-to-day lives. Once you’ve achieved organizational alignment, ensure that training support and data migration are offered by your new software to make for a quick, smooth transition for yourself and your employees. Doing so sets your firm up for success and increases the likelihood that you see a return on investment sooner rather than later.
To ease the transition to a new software, MyCase offers regularly scheduled live online training sessions in addition to a substantial online knowledge base containing training and support articles. We also offer a free guide dedicated to adopting law practice management software quickly and easily into your practice.
There are a variety of legal software tools available and their features can vary greatly. Your choice of software will likely hinge on a number of factors such as your practice area, the size of your staff, the needs of your firm, and the learning curve/implementation time required to fully migrate to a new system. You’ll also want to take into consideration customer reviews from sites like Software Advice, Capterra, and Trustpilot to weigh the pros and cons of any new technology tool.
With all that in mind, below are a number of things to consider when shopping for law practice management software:
- Feature set
- Ease of use
- Customer Support/Training availability
- Compatibility with other ubiquitous software
- Ease of migration
- Customer reviews

Every feature of a law practice management software addresses the unique challenges of running a law firm, from legal invoicing to client communications to document organization. Not available in Outlook, those features will help you run a more efficient practice, save you hours of administrative time, and get paid faster.
