Our Estate Planning Software Ensures Your Clients’ Interests Are Protected and Risk Is Minimized
Clients solicit your advice and expertise to protect their wealth, avoid ambiguity, assure their wishes, and avoid contests in court. Tracking these details with a patchwork of generic tools not only wastes time — it’s costing you.
Best Overall in Case Management Software
Robust program that covers everything from case management to client lead intake to comprehensive firm accounting. After using Clio, MyCase, and PracticePanther at various points in my career, none of the CMS programs on the market have come close to CARET Legal’s comprehensive functionality. Having the ability to do not just case management and billing, but complete firm accounting/reconciliation is a godsend.
