Customizing your law practice management software for your practice area can be a time-consuming and frustrating task. AbacusLaw helps you speed up and even eliminate the need for that task with pre-configured product packages for specific areas of law. These Practice Area Legal Solutions, or PALS, are out-of-the-box solutions that provide the additional input screens, automation rules, specific reports, documents, forms, and more that you need for your area of expertise.


Different legal specialties have different needs for their law practice management software. Someone in family law needs to keep track of different information than someone in criminal defense, for example. Rather than taking hours of your time customizing the software and developing forms, Practice Area Legal Solutions by AbacusLaw automatically configure your AbacusLaw installation with extra screens, reports, queries, forms specific to your practice area and more, ensuring you have what you need to run your practice effectively.

PALS are designed with the understanding that different areas of law have different needs and are looking to collect and manage different types of data. AbacusLaw draws on expert knowledge of the legal industry and 35+ years of service experience to help clients run successful law practices using PALS. Presently, AbacusLaw offers PALS in:

  • Civil Litigation
  • ADR
  • Estate Planning
  • Bankruptcy
  • Business Law
  • Prosecutors
  • Contract and Document Management
  • Criminal Defense
  • Family Law
  • Immigration
  • Worker’s Compensation
  • Personal Injury
  • Real Estate
  • Employment Law

If you practice in more than one area, you can install more than one PALS on your AbacusLaw software without them interfering with each other. The Smart Screens on PALS recognize the type of matter you’ve selected and display the appropriate screen and information for each.

PALS can save hours of time you would otherwise take to research and implement these practice area customizations, allowing you to spend more time working with your clients and growing your practice.
