We don’t consider ourselves just another software vendor. We partner with you to learn your pain points and then provide the tools to solve them. We have successfully implemented fully integrated solutions for thousands of installations, for tens of thousands of users, throughout the world.

It’s All We Do

Many other applications are “tied” to other products or services, often forcing the purchase of substandard or unnecessary functionality. Case management software is all we do.

Our History

Our History

Founded in Springfield, Illinois, Legal Files Software, Inc. has grown to become an international developer and provider of case and matter management software. We began serving the legal community in the mid-1980’s after we saw a need for a fast and efficient way to provide the most up-to-date information on file to anyone in the organization – no matter where they were located. A dedicated group of people, with a shared belief in integrity and a strong commitment to quality and service, worked together to develop the software and formally launched the company in 1990.


Our small business environment sparks creativity and encourages innovation. By offering pioneering software and providing judicious attention to customer service, Legal Files Software, Inc. has flourished – and so have our customers.
