Juris Legal Software Review
Back to reviewing legal-specific apps. This one's called Juris. It's desktop-based. And I cannot get a trial copy of it to show here. I have a client in it, and I took some screenshots for you to get a visual.
Is it good legal software? It does the job. However, it felt like it took me into the way back machine. Back to about 20 years ago. How many clicks does it take to get to a report? About 10. It says it has customized reports, but you have to go through many loops and hurdles to create them. It's clunky, and it crashes. That's good news for me because I do a lot of data migration. But it is a big frustration for the clients.
I had an interesting conversation with another app partner, and she noted that many of these desktop software companies are now switching to more of a subscription-style payment system. No more, "you owe $15,000 today," for the software for the year. It's more about paying monthly.
That's good news for clients and will help cash flow. Here are the pluses and minuses of the products and some screenshots to help you get a visual.
"Billing, Accounting and Financial Management Software. Make more informed financial decisions to enhance your firm's performance."
Well, I am trying to be fair. I am not a fan of desktop programs. Especially in the twenty-first century. We are past that. The price, the buggy - crashing of this program may make you wonder why you are paying all this money for a sub-par software. And as you can see by the screenshots below, it looks like a program I used back in 1999. Almost-DOS looking.

Juris Report Creation
Not the type of program for that. Basic product. It does integrate with Clio
Easy to Use
Very very easy to use. Especially for an attorney or non-accountant type user.
Expensive for what it does. Too expensive.
Overall rating : 1 / 5
This product fails because of the price point and lack of integrations.
I would be curious if there are any users of Juris who love this program (I am sure there are some). I'd love to hear from you.
