Defense Attorneys Love AbacusLaw

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,
Schwartzberg & Luther, APC

“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.”
