Conceptualized by a partner at a personal injury law firm, SmartAdvocate is a legal management platform that offers flexible deployment options and a modular suite of applications.
In addition to case management, attorneys and their staff can use SmartAdvocate to manage contacts, communication, documents, and calendaring and docketing. The system can also track time, and functionality is available for firms that also want integrated accounting, billing, and invoicing.
By managing all case information within a single platform, users can minimize double entry. The system is capable of communicating via mass email or SMS message; it can also automatically forward cover letters and other documents to client via email, or send physical copies in the mail. The interface is designed to display as much relevant information as possible on a single screen; shortcuts, pop-up screens for critical information, and full integration with Windows and Microsoft Outlook are other key features.
SmartAdvocate is typically recommended to mid-sized and large personal injury and litigation firms.
