Our History

Our History

Founded in Springfield, Illinois, hometown of Abraham Lincoln, Legal Files Software, Inc. has grown to become an international developer and provider of case and office management software for practice and law department matter management, litigation support, document assembly and integrated collaboration, communication and workflow tools.

Thousands of users in leading law firms, corporate legal departments, legal services clinics, insurance companies and universities throughout the world use Legal Files software to store case information and track office workflow. After thousands of hours of vetting in working legal environments, Legal Files is versatile enough for complicated corporate legal matter management, yet remains uncomplicated enough to help you handle daily administrative tasks simply and easily.

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 each case to everyone in a law firm – no matter where they were located.

In a city known for its small-town friendliness and educated workforce, a dedicated group of people worked together to develop Legal Files software.

With a shared belief in integrity and a strong commitment to quality and service, we formally launched our company, Legal Files Software, Inc. in 1990.

Developed in a working legal environment, Legal Files has undergone thorough hands-on testing using real-world applications. As a result, Legal Files has evolved over the years into the premier practice management software available today.

By offering innovative software and judicious attention to customer service, Legal Files Software, Inc. has flourished – and so have our customers.

The Legal Files solution is the company’s only product and, as such, the company is able to devote 100 percent of its energy and resources to the application. Legal software is all we do – and we do it better than anyone else. Our small business environment sparks creativity and encourages innovation. In addition, since Legal Files Software, Inc. is not a subsidiary of another organization with other, unrelated lines of business and interest, the company is able to provide a true partnership with its clients that results in a lever of customer service that is truly unique in the legal software industry.
