It has helped me be more productive and profitable.

Pros

This program is easy to learn and easy to use. When I have contacted Support, the Responsiveness has been excellent. Said again: RESPONSIVE SUPPORT. I think also that the price that is charged is fair and competitive. I would buy it again and I do recommend it.

Cons

Few negatives, if any. I would prefer that I could show unbilled time on the invoice. I often choose to do some kinds of work (short phone calls, corrections) that are not charged so that the Client recognizes that not everything is billed.

Pros

Although the tool has many functions, it is still very easy to customize. No need to make use of all of the functions day one. It is easy to work the separate modules into the firm's workflow. Also, the timekeeping, matter management and invoice management is such a time saver. Finally, the reporting tools are invaluable and the ability to download the data in several formats is yet another key to efficiency.

Cons

Still working through it - but so far no glaring issues.
Perhaps one area that may be worth mentioning is integration. I am a Gsuite user and the ability to directly link with my google docs, etc would be great.

Complete office management and the customer service and training are the best!

Pros

Having worked for the Public Defender's Office for almost 28 years, a lot of what I was doing as far as management was what I would call "old school." In other words, I used a lot of legal pads and paper. Very little was automated, and since I was assigned cases, there was no need to track time. In short, it was kind of the same thing as when I first started practicing law in 1983.
Practice Panther has been a lifesaver for me. It has made it so simple to track expenses, customize forms, submit claims for payment, etc. I guess the thing I like most is that it is not "one size fits all" software. I was able to easily customize it to my needs now, and I can see where it will grow with our practice as it grows. Right in there, though would be the top notch customer service and free training.

Saves time on billing. Allows me to more efficiently track time and matters. Gives me alerts from hearing to invoicing, and keeps me organized on so many levels. It really helps not only the legal side of my business but the administrative side as well.

Pros

Before PracticePanther I was bogged down in paperwork. I was spending nearly 4 hours a week just handling my invoicing and losing track of countless billable hours. Since joining PracticePanther I have seen a huge rise in my productivity. I am keeping better track of times and I have more free time to work on the law and less time is spent on administrative matters.

Cons

I have yet to find anything I dislike, however, it would be nice if I could connect my Google drive to my account.

Pros

The software is incredibly user friendly and the customer service will absolutely spoil you. Our rep and the rest of the team are incredibly responsive, professional and solution oriented. They have such pride in their product.

Cons

When making a time entry, the software closes out the box when I click anywhere outside the time entry box. I then lose all the data I was writing and have to do it again.

Makes my life more organized and simpler. It saves me so many hours.

Pros

PracticePanther integrates with all of the other programs I use: Paypal, Quickbooks, Outlook, and more. It also has a very aesthetically pleasing design that is pretty intuitive even for a lawyer who's not the best with technology. Their customer service is also fantastic, and for me, that's one of the main things I look for in a software company. I also like the secure client portal, internal chat, and the customizability of the legal intake form. PracticePanther is always improving, and I have no doubt that it will surpass Clio in popularity. I wrote a more detailed review of PracticePanther here: https://smallfirmlegalmarketing.com/practicepanther-review-2017-is-it-worth-your-money

Cons

I couldn't find any cons for PracticePanther, but I've heard that they don't seamlessly integrate with some CRM software (Lexicata, Contactually, etc.). Using Zapier for integration will still work, but it requires an extra step.

My favorite thing about PracticePanther is its ease of use. The important information I need is front and center upon logging in. Not to mention the convenience of having a single button on every screen that can take me anywhere on the site. Ultra convenient!

Cons

The only con I can really list is that the mobile app appears to be a port from the website using the app as a wrapper. I'd really like to see a fully native iPhone app that doesn't require scrolling or zooming in and out to get things done.

All things we need are integrated: client management, contacts, billing, client portal, etc.

Pros

We like how it seamlessly integrates with many of our existing software programs such as Quickbooks and LawPay.

Cons

Certain functions that I think should be standard are not available in the software yet, such as workflows launching from completed steps being marked, instead of all workflow going by preset dates.

I'm not sure there is anything I like "least" about the software. As with any software, I would like it to do exactly what I want to do tailored for my particular type of practice. That is obviously impossible absent having custom written software. However, after trying numerous platforms, Practice Panther is the closest thing I've been able to find two custom software.

Pros

When I oversaw operations at my previous firm, I always lamented my inability to leverage existing technology in a thoughtful and efficient way. Changing the dogma at an existing firm seems to be a significant barrier to many firms implementing technology solutions and, more importantly, sticking with them.When I decided to begin anew, I spent weeks trying all of the software out there. I tested the patience of the support teams as I pushed the limits of the various software platforms to make sure they would work in a way that integrated with how I work and think.

Once I found Practice Panther, I knew I was where I wanted to be. The program is intuitive, forward-thinking, and addresses the things that I care the most about. Support is rapid and efficient. I'm thrilled to have found Practice Panther as a partner.

I like being able to automate my documents and set up templates so that clients can use an iPad to fill in intake forms and such. This has helped to cut down on paper consumption in the office.

The support staff are top notch. They respond quickly (sometimes as soon as 10 minutes!) and have been able to remedy any issue I've had. Aside from that, the software is intuitive and simple enough, while meeting all of my firm's needs. The software has made me more organized and has streamlined my billing practices, while allowing me to communicate securely with my clients. On top of all of that, pricing for the software beats their competitors. Can't miss.

Cons

I really don't have any complaints about the software. If pushed, I suppose they could add some additional features (multiple trust accounts), but I hear those are coming down the pipe soon anyway, so no complaints!

If I¿ve forgotten to add a time entry at the end of the day, I can add it from my phone in a snap! I tried out several different web-based practice management software packages before settling on PracticePanther. I initially thought I would go with a competitor, but when I tried out PracticePanther, the user experience is far superior to the others I tried. I also appreciate the customer service and support. They are always willing to help with questions I have and always open to suggestions for new features.

Cons

Some of the functionality is not extremely user friendly, but their customer service is top notch and always willing to help, so all of my questions have been answered.

Pros

Before PracticePanther, we mainly relied on paper files and on an online calendar to keep track of our schedule. PracticePanther has opened up a new world of possibilities to help keep our growing practice organized and running efficiently. PracticePanther helps to ensure that our attorneys can spend more time working on their client's cases. PracticePanther helps to maximize our attorney's effectiveness for their clients. I would advice other attorney's to give PracticePanther a try and see that it can help them stay on top of their client's case and maximize their potential.

Cons

I don't love how the folders are organized in the box. I would prefer they were organized by matter instead of client. Also, a way to separate closed matters from open matters would be preferable.
