Guide to Implementing or Changing Legal Software

Deciding to change the technology your firm uses to manage cases, clients and billing requires commitment to see the process. Quite frankly, it’s not always easy. If your team is accustomed to working with a certain type of legal practice management software, change is difficult, even when everyone acknowledges that doing so is necessary.

If you're stuck and unable to move forward with transforming how your law firm uses technology, this guide will help you navigate the process. Along the journey, remember to give yourself and your team credit. Make no mistake, staying up to date with technology is no longer optional; it is a requirement.

What Is Case Management Software?

For decades, lawyers in the U.S. depended on typewriters and telephones to run their businesses. Other industries utilized the same technologies. There was nothing out there that catered specifically to the legal profession.

Case management software (used interchangeably with LPMS) has been around for decades, but some law firms have not yet transitioned. Unfortunately, a failure to at least explore the benefits of LPMS puts law firms at a severe disadvantage — especially in an era when most firms are working at least part-time in a remote setting. Let's explore some of the most significant benefits of legal practice management software.

2022 Legal Practice Management Software Buying Guide

It’s never been a secret that law has historically been slow to evolve and adapt alongside other professions. When Smokeball released the last version of this guide, “Is Legal Practice Management Software Worth It?” we acknowledged that many firms still avoided change due to fear or stubbornness. Such firms could still maintain their status quo without the help of software.

In 2022, the question of worth no longer applies: Legal practice management software is a necessity, not a nice-to-have. The shift to remote/hybrid law offices is permanent, and attorneys must permanently shift their mindsets and processes to keep up — and keep ahead.

Smokeball understands that legal practice management software is a major investment of your firm’s money and time. Because we want to give you the most value and productivity for your investment, we updated this guide to reflect the reality of 2022. The legal landscape has shifted significantly since you started your practice. Let’s take advantage of the opportunity together.
