Clio Software


 

Clio is a cloud-based legal practice management solution suitable for small to large law firms. The platform enables legal firms to track important deadlines, manage cases and documents and bill and collect from clients.

The time tracking feature helps users manage tasks for the day, week or month and track billable time directly. The practice dashboard displays billable hour targets and goals and how well users are progressing against them. Accounting and billing capabilities let clients access information via email and a secure client portal. Clio Payments allows lawyers to receive payment to either a client’s trust or operating account.

Users can assign tasks from specific issues to any member of their team, and tasks can be linked to specific issues. Task reporting provides data and analysis into team progress and productivity. Clio is designed to be accessible with mobile and desktop devices and offers iOS and Android apps.

Pros

Clio is an easy to use mobile program which allows our attorneys to access everything in one convenient location including billing, documents and firm agendas. Clio seamlessly syncs with Microsoft Business Essentials allowing for the integration of client emails and attachments, as well as calendaring into the program without any duplication.

Cons

The only cons at this point have been the limitations on the migration of PCLaw data (limited to matter number and client contact information) and the lack of a native email support. However, the sync with Microsoft Exchange makes this second issue very minor.

Very user friendly. Super easy to learn and easy on the eyes. Great training program that I highly recommend completing (Clio Product Pro).

Pros

Clio has everything our firm needs. EVERYTHING. We recently switched to Clio for time tracking, task management, calendaring, contact management, and billing. We're replacing 4 or 5 different software products with this all-in-one software. The software also allows users to send messages to each other and attach them to a client to create a complete file for a certain matter.

Cons

There's a learning curve with using Clio. It took a little time to understand the language used (i.e. what is a "matter" or an "activity") by Clio. Certain features are a little inconvenient and are difficult to get used to. For example, on the time tracking, if there are multiple timers running, I can't differentiate between two different timers for the same client without clicking into each timer. Our firm may work on different projects for the same client (e.g. two different contracts). It saves time if I can immediately decipher between the two contract timers and click the appropriate timer.

I like that Clio combines contact management with billing. Our previous software had two separate databases one for client related document generation and one for billing clients. Also that Clio works with LawPay.

I wish there was a "do not bill" feature so that i can void a time entry easily without loosing the complete record of the entry or having to write it off.

There are so many useful features to this software including document storage and lookup to client information access. It is very user friendly and easy to navigate with the easy to use tabs. Customer service is excellent as well, always friendly and willing to assist with any questions or problems i may have.

Very intuitive and user friendly. Simple to learn and use. Customer service has been great - very friendly and easy to understand.

Cons

Not very flexible. The reporting is simplistic which would work for very small firms but if you are looking for good analytics, this is not the program for you. The syncing between Quickbooks online has been "broken" for close to three months now so everything has to be double entered and I have not heard back from them with an ETA of when it will be fixed.

Frustrating for the Most Common Tasks

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

I used both Amicus and PCLaw prior to Clio. Clio has a sharper look and is better than the others for ease of locating and reviewing documents and prior log entries. HUGE DOWNSIDE is that one of the most common tasks for attorneys, logging and billing phone entries, requires you to enter into multiple screens and fill out the same information twice. You also cannot run a timer on the same screen as the phone log!? You are required to do timer on a separate screen and enter the information all over again. It is also quite obnoxious that you cannot see the phone number of the contact you want to dial on the same screen as the phone log, forcing you to enter the contacts screen, jot down the number, and then go into the phone call screen. Although these things may seem minor, they translate into a great deal of wasted time each day. Even PCLaw, which was quite primitive, had these problems solved.

Pros

Sharp appearance and easy access to your data. Per my assistant, the ease of billing is superior to others. Customer support was responsive and sympathetic, albeit unable to help.

Cons

Far too much time wasted having to enter multiple screens for simple tasks that should be available in one place.

Overall, I am very, very pleased with Clio. It is been helpful in my practice in a multitude of ways. It has excellent practice management; I like the way you can access so much information about one client under their matter: calendar; all financials; etc. Also helpful to obtain reports on the firm, staff numbers, client billing, etc.

Pros

I like that the specific calendar for each matter comes up in that case/matter. Ease of use. Tutorials available. Ease of time entry. Ability to send tasks to colleagues.

Cons

When entering documents under CLIO, there is no way to put docs in order by entry date (have to go in through DropBox.

We have been clio users from the inception of our law firm and I am thankful we did. It has taken some time investment to get it set up correctly for our business but I believe we are getting there and there are features of clio that are well worth the money (even just using it for those limited features).

Pros

Clio is great case management software. The calendaring system makes things very easy and I often enter calendar items or view from my cellphone. Definitely helps keep your practice operating smoothly.

Cons

Creating a workflow that works for our business has been a challenge. Would like more flexibility with trust requests/accepting payments in clio, etc.
For example, we accept non-refundable retainers which go directly into our operating account. These are still treated as piggy banks (our clients get statements at the end of month to show how much they have remaining) and Clio doesn't seem to accurately reflect this idea. The way it labels "fees" "payments" seems confusing. Would also like an ability to enter time quickly for a matter (without having to go to the particular matter and then hit "time).

We have really enjoyed using this product as it is really handy to have all of your work product in one location and accessible from anywhere. Once a file has been completed, we also utilize Clio for long-term storage of file documents by scanning in all file materials in to each matter so that we can eliminate our prior practice of hard copy files being retained in our cold storage for 7 years.

Pros

The biggest benefit to our office has been being able to streamline our firm so that everything is consistent and easily accessible to all of our attorneys and staff, anywhere (where there's an internet connection).

Cons

There are some glitches from time to time that cannot be explained or fixed in a relatively quick timeframe. Some issues have taken months to resolve including a major issue with our Quickbooks Online sync which created a nightmare in QBO that took 4-5 months to resolve.

Advice to Others

If you don't want to reinvent the wheel when it comes to organization of your firm's clients and work product, get Clio!! It is well worth the cost.

Ease of use and tremendous time savings at a reasonable price.

Pros

For a solo to small law practice, Clio is a wonderful law practice management suite, offering many different features and integrations with third-party products such as FundBox.

Cons

Clio occasionally crashes (about once every ten times) and also does not offer exporting of invoices to Word. This is not a big deal, as I can convert a PDF file to a Word file, edit it, and then reconvert it back to PDF, but it would be nice if I did not have to undertake these steps.

Once started I was committed to use it until I have time to find a better alternative. Capterra.com was the primary tool I used to find Clio. I have concerns that the positive reviews are all fake.

Pros

Clio has the features I needed. I was fooled by the initial trial into thinking it would be a good fit for my firm. What use is a feature that is so complicated to find, use, and enable that I have to call support or Google how to make it work.

Cons

Nothing is intuitive, at first it seems like everything is going to work. Clio has all the features I wanted, or at least it seemed like it did. Once I used it for more than just the trial period, using it to manage my trust account, client billing, client communication, it just does not work. After using it for any length of time, the navigation gets tiresome and then frustrating. At every turn I find myself having to Google how to make it work. Sharing a document with a client requires several steps including typing in the client's contact info; instead of just clicking a button for share. Now my client can't enter a partial payment. What the heck? Prior to becoming an attorney I was a software engineer; I would have been embarrassed to put my name on such a product.

Frankly, I don't trust the myriad of positive reviews for this product, they can't be true.

Pros

Clio is responsive to customer issues, inquiries, and suggestions. It is intuitive to use and I trust it. Every 18 months or so I shop the google market to see what Clio's competitors are doing. I stick with Clio because it is always a step ahead of the competitors.

Cons

There are a few features that are not as robust as I'd like them to be. One example - I do a lot of mediation and it is clunky to open a new matter with more than one client. This is true across the legal case management software and I hope it will get resolved soon.

Pros

We have a small practice with two offices. Clio's web interface makes it easy to use a shared platform for basic things.

Cons

Clio's back office capabilities are woefully oversold. Billing is rudimentary -- even something like billing costs periodically in a contingent fee case is "a feature we hope to implement soon" as their helpful/not helpful customer service people often say. Integration with other online services or othe software is also oversold. With Office365, for example, you get a cumbersome link to the O365 site, but if you open a document from Clio in Word you cannot simply save the document back to storage in Clio. For the amount that Clio charges, it should give better functionality.

Clio allows us to be more efficient. It is not cheap, but remember that you are not spending money on a server or an IT company. And it allows our team to work from anywhere - car, home, coffee shop, ...

Pros

The interface is simple. Non-computer folks are able to use it quickly. Integration with Outlook (contacts, tasks and calendar) great for us. They also make constant updates that are great to see. They are now integrating with Office 365 directly instead of a desktop app. I understand that integration with gMail is even better (but we like O365). Time keeping is also easy. There are also lots more features than we are using, but we have them on our roadmap to implement (like document automation).

Cons

Would like to be able forward Clio notes via email by just clicking a button. We used Clio notes to keep a running update on the case between team members. Also, when there were some significant tech support issues , Clio was slow to react (keeping in mind that an impaired Clio impacts my business). But once they acted (Twitter was a great way to get their attention), they fixed the issues promptly.

I greatly dislike the Reports tab in general. There are so many options, but they are obtuse in what they provide, at least to me. For someone who is not sophisticated or experienced on this side of running a business, I find it exceptionally difficult to navigate this area and printout the information I need without having to try multiple options.

I am able to bill timely, I can keep track of all expenses so I am getting paid back, I am able to bill as I go so that I am not forgetting to bill for what I had done for the day.

I don't like the expense snippets. This should be the same as the activities. The creation of documents should be easier. It is too hard to do.

It does what I need, and a lot of things I don't even know I need or want.

Pros

I know it can do so much. I know it has the funding and expertise behind it to make it among the best, if not the best, depending upon one's needs and wants.

Cons

Not really Clio's fault, but the time it takes to get up to speed with Clio so that I can take advantage of its features and power.

Contact, Matter and Document creation, and organization in a mobile friendly and intuitive software that promotes growth with increased capacity created with efficiency and greater communication with clients because information is readily available and easy to share.

Pros

Clio has driven my firm to more efficiency which increased our capacity to take on more cases, grow revenues and expand our brand. Having all of our contacts, matters and important case documents and information in the palm of your hand promotes organization and communication because the information is stored in Clio and easy to access and share.

Cons

The accounting system is still developing. Invoicing clients is amazing, and so are the Clio payments feature and accounts receivable reports. But it's not yet possible to track firm expenses, only matter expenses.

Easy billing

Pros

Easy billing, revenue tracking and secure document management. I also like that I see my firm's financial performance when I login. It's a great motivator.

Cons

Not really designed for flat fee matters - the billing can get a little clunky if you are a flat fee firm like myself.

I wish Clio docs integrated with Google Drive, e.g. if someone uploads something to Clio it shows up in my Google Drive.

It's also silly that there is no notification when a client uploads documents. That seems like a basic feature.

Pros

Easy access on the go and accessibility to documents for each client (allows an electronic database to reduce size of the physical file).

Cons

Financial metrics do not include enough options (for example, my practice does not focus on the billable hour but flat fees and the features do not accurately reflect my billed revenues vs. received revenues).
