Rating Breakdown

Our Rating: 4.8/5

Our rating is based on our subjective judgment. Use our resources—including our rating and community ratings and reviews—to find the best fit for your firm.

Legaler is a video conferencing platform built specifically for lawyers and law firms. It provides end-to-end encryption at all pricing levels, integrates with Clio Manage, and offers many lawyer-specific features (including truly private chat messages). Pricing starts at $0/user/month, so one can thoroughly test the platform before purchasing higher tiers.

Who Should Use Legaler

Although Clio users will get the most out of their Legaler experience, any attorney or firm who is looking to integrate video conferencing, or virtual meetings into their firm offerings would likely find a lot of value. With its focus on the client user experience and a sharp eye on security, Legaler creates a viable way to completely integrate video calls into your office.

Currently, however, Legaler is not a great replacement for your inter-office communication. Although you can share files and your screen, it does not integrate with #Slack and MS Teams, and meetings cannot be created directly out of Google, or Outlook Calendars. (It does, however, integrate with Google Calendar and Office365).

Additional Details about Legaler

Services Portal

Other than reliable security and client-centric user experience, the most interesting feature of Legaler is really the Services Portal. Here, users can see where Legaler is taking their innovation—a better virtual office experience.

Through this portal, you can create a booking page that can be embedded on your website (or used separately). Additionally, different meeting types can be created with unique scheduling requirements for each type. Meetings initiated through this portal will automatically create a Legaler video conference. Savvy users of this portal may find that they can create a custom and unique experience for their client meetings.

End-to-End Encryption

Unlike many other video conferencing providers, Legaler relies on WebRTC technology to encrypt the communication between parties. For those of you who are curious, you can learn more about WebRTC here. For the rest of us, however, what this means is that the communication is end-to-end encrypted, and no third party (including Legaler) has access to the contents of your conversation. And, surprisingly, this goes for the free tier as well as the paid tiers.

Browser-based Connection

Since Legaler has opted for a browser-based connection, not only is it very secure (as above), it is also easier to use. Instead of needing to download an app on your phone, tablet, or computer, you (and your clients) simply connect using something like Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or even Microsoft Edge.

Pricing

Starter – Free

Subscriptions start with a free tier that offers a majority of the features that Legaler provides, including encrypted conversations, vote-based scheduling, and collaborative notes & agenda. So there is really no excuse not to try them out—especially if you’re a Clio user.

Active – $19/user/month

At the Active subscription level, you get all the Starter features, and access to some hefty storage of your recordings, notes, and messages. Once you get a feel for what Legaler offers, this may be an attractive option as you create more recordings and store more data.

Enterprise – Custom pricing

Essentially, if you need something other than what Legaler specifically provides through their other tiers, you may be well served to contact them directly. 

Integrations

Legaler integrates directly into Clio Manage. Although, it is not necessary to use an LPMS to file and organize case information within the platform. The integration, however, helps you manage contacts, track billing, and import notes into Clio from Legaler.
