Keeping track of hundreds of attorneys, their legal specialties, and locations they operate in - not to mention assigning them relevant cases - requires sophisticated software. LegalServer’s Pro Bono Tools were developed hand-in-hand with legal aid experts to simplify and streamline these tasks.
The Pro Bono Tools module allows users to find the right attorney, match them up with the correct client, and ultimately manage their cases more effectively. The following clients recently went live with their own custom LegalServer implementations, and are enjoying the time-saving benefits of having Pro Bono Tools.
