Core Features

For Law Practice Management Software, the following are essential features, and you should therefore expect to see a check in every box in this section.

Yes
No

Case/Matter Management

Matter management is the defining feature of law practice management software, of course. However, some software is targeted at specific practice areas and may implement case management in different ways in order to manage information specific to those practice areas.

Client/Contact Management

Managing clients and other contacts is a core feature of law practice management software.

Task Management

Basic task management includes creating tasks with due dates that can be associated with cases/matters and assigned to different lawyers. Some products stick to pretty basic task management, while others offer enough features to make any Getting Things Done devotee happy.

Calendar

As with email, this feature means a full calendar client, not just an integration with Outlook or Google Calendar.

Timekeeping

Timekeeping is a core feature of practice management software, essential for lawyers who bill by the hour but useful even for those who don't.

Conflict Checking

An actual conflict checker is more than just a search box. This applies to software that actually has a conflict checking feature. Implementation varies, but at a minimum you should be able to search the entire database for matching names. It should check for conflicts accurately and intuitively, allow for a lateral hire to input their conflict database into the system, work quickly when new clients call, and comply with the rules of professional conduct for checking conflicts.

Email Client

Does it include a full email client? (Alternative solutions that don't amount to an email client, like plugins for Outlook or Gmail, do not earn a check for this feature. See software integrations, below.))

Text Messaging

Can you send and receive text messages and associate them with your matters?

Document Management

Basic document management allows you to add documents and associate them with your cases/matters.

Document Assembly

Loading your firm’s document templates into your law practice management software can save time and ensure consistency. This check means basic document assembly suitable for form letters, invoices, etc. For advanced document assembly, you’ll probably need additional software.

Secure Client Portal

Basic Bookkeeping

This means basic checkbook register–style bookkeeping, which is more limited than full accounting. You should be able to keep track of your operating accounts and reconcile your balances, but you may still need full accounting software.

Trust Accounting

This means you can track your client trust accounts, including expenses and payments. It is normal to see trust accounting without basic bookkeeping or full accounting, in which case you will need something else for accounting.

Full Accounting

Some software includes full double-entry accounting features, making additional accounting software unnecessary.

Billing & Invoicing

Does the software allow you to send bills or invoices?

Online Payments

Payment processing is increasingly offered either as an included or add-on feature, especially with cloud-based law practice management software.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I use Neos?

As a cloud-based practice management system, users can access their files from anywhere they have an internet connection and a modern web browser.

What is the price of Neos?

Neos does not publicize their pricing model. Potential users will need to contact sales in order to determine pricing.

Is Neos secure?

As with most cloud-based law practice management software, Neos uses a Secure Socket Layer connection to protect information while it is in transit. Additionally, Neos stores the cloud information on Microsoft servers through the Azure product.

Does Neos integrate with Microsoft 365?

Yes. Neos does integrate with Microsoft 365. It has an Outlook email add-on as well as a Calendar sync. But what sets Neos apart is its integration with SharePoint, instead of OneDrive which gives your firm access to the full functionality of Microsoft's built-in document management and collaboration features.

Does Neos integrate with Google Workspace?

At the time of this review, Neos does not have any native integration with Google Workspaces products.

Can Neos handle my Trust Accounting?

Although Neos does not have complex Trust Account capabilities yet, it can likely handle what most lawyers throw at it.

Can I accept online payments with Neos?

As of this review, Neos does not have a built-in method for accepting online payments.

Does Neos integrate with Zapier?

At the time of this review, Neos does not have a direct integration with Zapier. However, with an Open API, users may not need a Zapier integration in the first place.

Can I automate documents with Neos?

Neos, like most LPMS systems, has mail-merge style document assembly functionality built-in. This will handle things like filling out templates, or creating engagement letters for PNCs. However, it won't handle conditional statements, and can be difficult to automate robust documents.

Is Neos compatible with both PC and Mac?

Yes, as a cloud-based solution, Neos is generally compatible with any machine running a modern browser.

Additional Details about Neos

Neos is still a bit of a work in progress. But that’s good. No practice management system is complete, and no system is a silver bullet. What we like about Neos, is that they are focused on reporting and analytics for your firm. And their pedigree says they can likely deliver on that. Additionally, with an Open API, users can likely get the platform to integrate with their favorite other cloud-based programs. The analytics focus means you’ll likely be able to get the right data out of the program.
