Practice Management software comparison chart

Practice 2.0 staff continually researches software and apps that may be helpful to lawyers in managing their practice.  The chart, found here, is a comparison of the features of some of the newer and more popular practice management products.  This chart is not comprehensive - there are hundreds of products on the market - but provides information we hope will be helpful in making selections for your practice.  If the technology in which you are interested is not on this chart, please call our practice management hotline at 602.340.7332 to speak to a practice management advisor.
