Juris

Legal Files Software Inc., working in partnership with the Juris programming staff, has developed the most robust integration available between Juris and any case management application available in the marketplace. Legal Files effectively manages a Juris user’s workload in one, complete solution. This technical innovation provides Juris users, who desire a competitive edge, the opportunity to gain the comprehensive case management functionality they need—seamlessly. The Legal Files integration with Juris is unique because it offers the most seamless solution available.

Designed to provide maximum flexibility to law firms using both Legal Files and Juris to manage their combined front and back offices, the integration allows each customer to determine how the two applications work together and specify which users have access to which information.

Law firms can determine in which system, Juris or Legal Files, new clients and matters should be initially created or opened. The Juris connection keeps the systems synchronized, eliminating the need to re-enter any data and creating a permanent link between the records in both systems.

The integration also gives Juris users the ability to leverage the powerful customization functionality that exists in Legal Files. Legal Files allows an unlimited number of matter types, each with their own set of customized menus and screens. For example, in Legal Files, a real estate practice matter can look totally different from an insurance defense matter because the data requirements for each type of matter are totally different. The Legal Files/Juris connection checks the Juris Practice Class to which a matter is associated and automatically creates the matter with the customized “look and feel” that the firm has established in Legal Files for that group of attorneys.

Additionally, Juris users can easily import both time and expense data gathered in Legal Files. Juris users also can access the automatic timekeeper that starts whenever matters are opened in Legal Files, and up to four timers can be activated at once. In addition to the reports available in Juris, Legal Files provides additional time and expense management reports.

The Legal Files/Juris integration is easy to use. No extra work or re-keying is needed. The two programs share critical information and users may view information from both sides, through either application. When combined, Legal Files and Juris offer a powerful and integrated practice management and accounting solution—without the need for redundant data entry.
