Online Law Practice Management Software

Cloud-Based Law Practice Management Tools for Lawyers and Law Firms

By

Online law practice management software is often called cloud software because the user accesses it on the internet rather than installing it on the law firm's own server. While some lawyers are nervous about entrusting all their client data to a third party, other attorneys have embraced web-based technology as a way to streamline their practices and to enable remote access to their data from anywhere.
