Starting off- why App4Legal?

“Before App4Legal, we were using Clio. However I found that App4Legal was more compatible with the goals and objectives of our firm. TL evolves with the desire to implement a novel and unique type of legal practice” says Hector, “Since then, we have grown in all aspects, be it lawyers, paralegals, clients and offices. In order to keep up with this exponential growth, it was crucial that we preserve the quality of it’s services. We wanted to elevate this quality through the right technology, which is why we turned to App4Legal for a smart, effective and detailed solution.”

He continues “The App4Legal team knows the concept and runnings of a law firm inside out. Due to this understanding, the software is highly focused and caters to our every need. It has everything to manage a firm and more! The best part is that you don’t need to be a tech-genius to operate the software, it’s easy to use and very intuitive.”

How has App4Legal elevated the workflow at TL ?

Since we started using App4Legal, we have been able to effectively stay connected as a team. The task and matter boards have been a productive and profitable way for us to keep track of all the work in the firm; what needs my immediate attention and what has been completed. Not only can we keep track of each others work, we are able to follow up on different matters in a more efficient way as everyone knows who is assigned to what. Taking accountability on tasks through a visual platform, and being in total control of your work is motivating, essentially elevating the quality of our work.
