A legal accounting program for time and billing management. PCLaw will no longer support certain older versions as of December 31st, 2023.

Product Overview

PCLaw is a robust legal accounting program, primarily used by law firms for time and billing management, trust accounting, and overall firm finances. It is designed to offer an all-in-one solution, integrating practice management with accounting and billing.

It maintains a desktop-centric approach with limited cloud capabilities, impacting its suitability for remote or hybrid working environments. Despite its comprehensive features, PCLaw’s server-based nature and the need for physical infrastructure make it less adaptable to modern, large-scale law firm operations.


  • Quick report generation
  • Links to practice management software
  • Customizable invoice


  • Limited cloud support
  • No integrations with 3rd party software

Target Market

Small and midsize law firms requiring comprehensive accounting with simpler case management and firms using Time Matters for case/document management.

Not Recommended For

Large firms or firms requiring advanced features. PCLaw’s server/desktop-based nature limits remote access and ties firms to physical office spaces. Its lack of cloud support and flexibility may not suit modern, large firms with dynamic working environments.

User Reviews of PCLaw

Submitted on July 31st, 2020 by Anonymous

We have had PCLAW for over 11 years. They don’t have a very good cloud based system so everything has to be backed up on an internal server. Tech support is usually very good except for recently. Due to COVID 19 and this is the 6 month of COVID, for some reason, they seem to be very short-handed on tech support. I’ve called 3 different days and each time, because the office is in Hawaii, have been disconnected promptly at 2:00 p.m. HST. It is very frustrating if the system does not work because you cannot update client data if they path to the back up folder is not working.

The Good…

It is an enterprise system. Covers billing to calendaring and communication.

The Bad…

Tech support during COVID and hours of operation if you live on the west coast and how at times the system does not connect properly to your stored data and you cannot pull up what was saved on PCLAW.

Keeping my firm’s finances organized and in control is critical. Trust accounting, operating accounts… keeping track of the money is absolutely essential for success.
