LegalServer is a configurable web-based platform that dynamically responds to the complex, rapidly changing challenges of providing quality, effective advocacy to the most vulnerable among us. Whether it is collecting important case data, measuring goals, outcomes and financial benefits, or easily capturing emails, documents and case activities, LegalServer is a tool that helps advocates effectively manage their caseloads
LegalServer provides an intuitive interface to allow administrators to customize data blocks, header and tab labels and more. The arrangement of data blocks may also be re-positioned on the page.
LegalServer stores common core information in a set of pre-defined data fields. Additionally, administrators may create site-specific fields using tools within the application.
LegalServer includes tools for client intake and qualification that can be configured to best match your specific client/case data entry workflow and processes. The following modules listed below are included in LegalServer; however, you may not require each module.
LegalServer provides an advanced suite of tools to track individual time, including client time, non- client time and pro bono advocate’s time. The timekeeping log also shows users significant information about each time entry, including client name, case ID, outreach name/ID, funding code and time spent.
This module allows administrators to set grant requirements, which are then checked in the system prior to billing activity to that grant. A ledger is also created for each grant, reporting all activity, dollar amount of each activity and the current balance of the account. Administrators may set and track monthly goals for a fund, and set alerts to warn them if the grant is reaching capacity.
There are several ways to search for information in LegalServer depending on the level of information a user seeks.
The calendar provides a centralized way to schedule appointments, tasks and deadlines. Calendar items are organized by office, program and users and can be associated to cases, outreaches and grants. Users may also email items and set reminders for events.
End-Users are able to easily generate data and analytics using LegalServer's custom reporting tools. Users can build custom reports, choose which fields to filter and display and their desired output format (tabular data, data visualizations, data comparisons, summations, multi-level cross-tab reports, as well as CSV or XML outputs). All reports can be exported from LegalServer into MS Excel format.
Users can easily attach and view documents within cases, outreaches and grant records within LegalServer. Because LegalServer is web-based, users are able to access important documents regardless of their location (in court, at home, in the office, etc.) and independent of device (phone, tablet, computer, etc.). Additionally, end-users see a list of (filtered) recommended documents or self-help document based on a specific criteria such as type of case or geographic location.
LegalServer provides a comprehensive set of tools to manage an organization’s pro bono activities. Programs can manage important information about every volunteer, including the types of cases they handle, number of cases taken, cases open, donations and communications. Agencies may also track time spent by each pro bono attorney, and billing information, such as the amount allocated, amount billed, and the amount that has not yet been spent.
LegalServer integrates with various communication tools such as email (to and from), SMS Text Messaging, and VOIP Telephone Integration. These integrations also track the method, message and status of each communication for users, contracts and cases.
Manage outside activities such as outreach campaigns, trainings or presentations. Track matters reporting codes as well as brochures distributed. Also track bulk referrals and run matters reports.
