(Santa Barbara, Calif. – July 22, 2014) MyCase, an AppFolio company, is pleased to announce that its founder and VP of Product Management, Matt Spiegel has been selected as one of the Fastcase 50.

The Fastcase 50 for 2014 highlights entrepreneurs, innovators, and trailblazers — those who have charted a new course for the delivery of legal services. In law firms with new delivery models, legal tech startups, and even inside some of the nation’s largest law firms and legal publishers, these pioneers are giving the world a first look at what’s next for law and technology.

MyCase is a leading web-based practice management software for solo and small law firms. Founded in 2010 by attorney Matt Spiegel, Alex Dikowski, and Chris Schulte, the company was originally built to address the number one complaint across all State Bar Associations, insufficient attorney/client communication. Today, MyCase offers robust, all-in-one legal practice management software that is used by legal professionals all over the world. The MyCase software includes all features required to manage the daily functions of a modern law practice, including client and case management, time tracking, billing, calendaring, document assembly, and secure attorney-client communication. And because the MyCase software is cloud-based, lawyers can work from anywhere, at any time, and significantly increases productivity.

In October 2012 MyCase was acquired by AppFolio, the leading provider of web-based software for vertical markets. AppFolio’s cloud-based software is used by thousands of small and mid-sized businesses to improve their workflow so they save time and money. The MyCase founding team remains in place and runs the day to day operations of MyCase.

“I am humbled to be included amongst the ranks of other talented professionals who use their legal insights and creative imaginations to innovate in the delivery of legal services,” said Matt Spiegel, Founder and VP of Product Management for MyCase. “We founded MyCase with the goal of increasing attorneys’ productivity and income by streamlining their law practices and workflows. It’s an incredible honor to receive recognition for my efforts to improve the practice of law.”
