Amicus Attorney 7 Premium Edition

By Kim Plonsky

July/August 2006 Table of Contents


Throughout the past decade, technology has become a driving force in the modern law office, as evidenced by the multitude of software that has emerged to handle just about any task legal professionals routinely perform. Most law offices employ dozens of individual software programs to handle various discrete chores including word processing, time and billing, docketing and calendaring, e-mail, litigation support, legal research and general knowledge management.

It’s not uncommon, then, for the various bits of information and other data that are the fodder of the everyday practice of law to become disjointed and result in data re-entry — quite a waste of valuable time and resources. The obvious solution is to commandeer all of the invaluable data captured by these various programs by getting them to share information and work together — enter Amicus Attorney 7.

Amicus Attorney 7 Premium Edition is an extremely powerful, flexible and fully customizable practice management system for lawyers that more than fills the bill. First released in 1994 and now in its seventh generation, Amicus Attorney has evolved into a full-fledged, total practice management solution. It anticipates the needs of the busy legal professional, and is streamlined, logical and intuitive. Most common tasks either can be performed from within the program itself or managed by it, which keeps Amicus Attorney (and you) informed of who did what, when and why.

In my view, the best new feature in the latest release of Amicus Attorney is its advanced integration with Microsoft Office, particularly Outlook. E-mail now is fully integrated into the program, which solves the dilemma of how to keep track of, access and find e-mail messages and attachments that are associated with a particular case or involve a particular topic. Attachments to e-mail also can be associated with a case file, and messages can be tagged as “Dealt With” or “Outstanding,” making it easy to stay on top of pending e-mail correspondence.

Another feature in Amicus Attorney 7 Premium Edition is its remote access ability via the Internet for those times when you are away from the office, as well as the ability to log in from any workstation. Amicus Attorney’s built-in Web browser, which automatically detects and imports your Internet Explorer Favorites when browsing internally, is handy and effective in keeping all of your daily tasks within the confines of a single program. It’s quite possible to work entirely within the program on a given day with Amicus Attorney 7.

There are so many great features in Amicus Attorney 7 that it’s impossible to list them all here. If you want to stay informed about the state of your practice, be reminded of things you need to do, manage your files, keep track of your billable time, organize appointments and tasks, keep track of people, take impromptu notes, organize research material, search for specific data and work cohesively with others on your team, look no further.

Amicus Attorney was created and designed by attorneys for attorneys, and it shows. Download a free trial version at www.amicusattorney.com/sales/sales_free_trial.asp to experience the power of Amicus Attorney.
