Software for Managing Your Practice

Software Helps You Do the Work, Record Time and Billing, and Manage Workflow

We recommend that you use a software program that helps you manage the many details for each of your matters. The links below take you to each vendor's website, where you can see screenshots and order a demo copy of the software.   

Come to our LOMAP office in Seattle to see many of these software tools in action on our LOMAP Lab dual-screen computer. Please make an appointment and allow 1.5 hours. Lawyers who use these tools never go back to using Post-It Notes™.

Plan to attend the Pacific Legal Technology Conference in Vancouver, BC, and the ABA Techshow in Chicago. These events acquaint you with just about anything pertaining to technology in a law office of any size. Contact LOMAP for dates and possible discounts.

Organize Your Practice

An organized lawyer is a more effective lawyer and is likely also a lawyer with reduced stress. These products anticipate what tasks a lawyer performs and try to centralize these tasks. You must be willing to accept the necessary training to best use these products.

No one product fits everyone's needs or preferences. Download a demo version of these products or plan to visit LOMAP and compare the software in our Lab. Contact Aaron Burt at lomap@wsba.org for an appointment. A modest hourly charge may apply. Not all titles are available in the Lab.
