You are your client’s champion

From initial pleadings through discovery and trial, as a civil litigation lawyer, you are compelled to protect your client’s investments, rights and opportunities. Regardless if you represent the plaintiff or defendant, it is important that your legal practice management solution is tailored in a way that solves your unique challenges. A busy litigation firm needs a software suite that simplifies both the daily practice and business sides of running a firm, thereby enabling you to focus on serving your clients.

Abacus integrates all of my needs into one system.

Civil litigation cases are seldom black or white

No two cases are the same — you take on a broad range of civil disputes, representing various businesses and individuals in a myriad of lawsuits. Using a patchwork of different tools each designed for a specific function is not only costly and overly complex, it is ineffective and wastes your precious time.

Your legal practice technology should connect the dots

Many legal practice management systems are generic by design – they just don’t connect the dots. Your legal practice management solution should be tailored to managing all aspects of your litigation practice – freeing your time to advise clients and prepare strategy.

The capabilities of AbacusNext Civil Litigation Suite are purposefully-designed to help trial lawyers:

Thousands of litigators are going the extra mile for their clients by saving time with a purpose-built practice suite that automates tasks, simplifies follow-up, and reduces clerical and administrative tasks.

It also makes common litigation practice management activities a cinch, by supporting easy to use:

When unexpected situations make changes inevitable, AbacusLaw makes it easy to alert any impacted parties and proceed accordingly. The Microsoft Outlook integration puts powerful organizational tools at your fingertips, enabling efficient client communications.

The way AbacusLaw gathers and keeps all the information through the matters system, whether its setting events, doing conflict checks, being able to have a team of people work on the same case, and keep everything in one place, it is so time saving and makes my job so much easier…I love AbacusLaw!

Assly Sayyar, Attorney at Law

Thomas J. Azar, Jr.,

“Been with them for almost 10 years and each version gets better and better! AbacusLaw integrated the case management, “tickler” by rule, forms, contacts, matter, ACCOUNTING AND BILLING, all into a single easy to use and learn package. Changes in one area are iterated throughout the software. We almost never add disparate or duplicate data. Well Done!”

Martin Luther,

“When I get a call from a client, in just one-click I can see everything about their case to immediately answer their questions. Even better, if I’m unavailable and my assistant answers the phone, she too can see their case file to provide instant gratification.”
