  • Precedent Workflows: You often have to do the same series of things on matters of the same type. Some of this can be put into a checklist, although it is a moving target, as there are dependencies between steps. Amicus has a superb workflow.
  • Matter Management: Client matters are the building blocks of your practice – you open a file for each. Everything you do and everything you bill revolves around these files. Amicus Attorney understands this. It makes all your files and all the file content instantly accessible, better organized and much easier to use.
  • Contacts: The most important aspect of your practice is the people with whom you work. Amicus helps you keep track of them, contact them and keep in touch. It’s easy to organize your contacts. And you can track so much information about them.
  • Conflict Checking: Conflicts of interest can arise from such a wide variety of previous relationships. Only you can make the determination as to whether or not a conflict exists. You need to have everything possible in front of you when you do so.
  • Email and Phone Calls: Amicus helps you stay on top of all your communications. Track email, phone calls and messages in one place. Know whom you need to get back to – and whom you are waiting to hear from – with information that’s completely integrated with your files.
  • Document Management: Contracts. Deeds. Mortgages. Pleadings. Transcripts. Filings. Registrations. Wills. Forms. So many more. All so important to the practice of law. But they can be overwhelming to keep track of.
  • Document Automation: Amicus not only organizes your practice – it helps you automate it too. Automating aspects of your practice will make you more efficient and profitable. It will also ensure your work is done more accurately, and reduces the risk of things being missed.
  • Time Capture: Bill more time, more easily. While you work, Amicus Attorney is in the background, keeping track of what you are doing. It will often present you with a time entry, completely filled in for you. Or you can create new time entries with handy shortcuts, far easier than scribbling them out on paper.
  • Time Entry Assistant: Amicus makes it so easy to create time entries for all the work you do. But just in case you forget to do one, the handy Time Entry Assistant helps make sure that no billable time gets lost. With a click you can see all your activities where no time entry has yet been recorded.

  • Knowledge Management: If you can re-use elements of previous research, opinions, factums, drafting and similar items, then you can practice more efficiently and get extra value out of previous work. Easily said, but often much harder to be organized to actually accomplish.
  • Business Development: Bringing in new retainers is so important to building a successful practice. But it’s often hard to focus on business development activities when you are busy with active clients. Amicus helps.
  • Firm Management: Amicus helps everyone in your firm work together. Common information means that everyone is on the same page – and can work on the same matter simultaneously. Collaborative workflows and delegation systems simplify knowing who has to do what when.
  • Time and Fees: Amicus Attorney Billing provides unified time and fee management to help streamline client billing. Record your time quickly, easily and accurately. Have different billing rates and billing behavior of time entries automatically apply to Files.

  • Accounts by Client: Start with a list of your clients. See all their WIP, A/R, trust and retainer balances – at a glance. If a client has multiple matters with you, the balances are totaled – or you can click to see them broken down by matter. You can do much of your billing work right from the clients list if you want.
  • Flexible Billing: Managing your billing processes effectively is the key to running a profitable firm. Amicus Attorney Billing keeps you right on top of your billing activities at all times. And it’s so easy you won’t even realize you are billing. You can bill from anywhere – get it done where you want to.
  • Mass Billing: It’s a fact that billing clients regularly results in more collected revenue and fewer client issues than if you wait to bill each client separately at the end of their case. That’s why Amicus Attorney Billing makes it easy to bill many clients at once.
  • Collections and Payments: Clients don’t always pay promptly. No one likes chasing them, but staying on top of who is overdue, and prompting them to make their payment, is an essential part of a financially successful practice. Amicus helps.
  • Trust Accounts and Retainers: Manage trust accounts and meet trust account obligations using Amicus Attorney Billing. At a glance, view all activity going on and account for every dollar by file in multiple trust accounts. You can save time by creating and allocating transactions to many files at once.
  • E-Billing: Many insurance companies and banks require their law firm to submit invoices electronically using UTBMS codes in prescribed formats. With Amicus Attorney Billing, you can designate files as E-Billing and have time and expense entries configured.
  • QuickBooks Accounting: Most accountants prefer that your firm uses QuickBooks for your general ledger and accounting. That’s why Amicus Billing has a great link with it. The dynamic link between Amicus and QuickBooks shares information between the programs automatically.
  • Access Control: Financial information is not something you necessarily want to share with everyone in your practice. That’s why Amicus has access controls that allow you to restrict who can see what. So you choose whether someone can see billing information at all.
  • Reports: Amicus Attorney Billing does a lot more than help you get the bills out. As it handles your client financial transactions, it accumulates significant information about what is happening in your practice. Amicus translates this information into insight.
  • Daily Billing Reminders: Amicus provides daily proactive billing reminders that help you know what you need to do to keep the financial side of your practice healthy. Each day Amicus goes through all your clients, files and invoices, and alerts you about things like files accumulating too much WIP.

You don’t have to look at two different systems – it’s all in one place. The seamless integration provides unprecedented visibility, control, and the best possible workflow.

I don’t have to go crazy looking for information. I don’t have to get up and look for files. I’ve created task lists for myself in Amicus, and I don’t like to see them pile up, so I make sure I get them done. I totally love Amicus Attorney.
