These 3 game-changing tools for law firms are the silver linings of 2020

Living in a pandemic certainly took some getting used to, especially for lawyers. Managing documents, getting signatures, and communicating with clients and colleagues were already challenges without the added difficulty of working from home. Even in the absence of a pandemic that is changing the way businesses work, lawyers need tools that can adapt to changing circumstances in order to run a successful law firm. MyCase has your back here.


MyCase is easy-to-use, cloud-based law firm management software with a wide range of features to get your work done on one platform, including document management and storage, built-in lead management, and a full email client. This year, they developed three key roles law firms need to keep business up and running during COVID-19. These are included in the software at no additional cost.

1. eSignature templates and CounterSignature. Without leaving MyCase, you can create eSignature template forms that you can use over and over and edit as needed. You can then share these forms with anyone who needs to sign, including countersigners, and track the document along the way. Customers can even sign documents from their phone, so you can get all parties to sign in minutes, even if they are thousands of miles apart.

2. 2-way text. Text back and forth with customers with a single text message inbox that everyone in your company can access. Text messages are sent from a single number and are automatically linked to cases and contacts, so you no longer have to worry about losing track of text conversations with customers. Company members also have control over notifications for new text messages so they can reply as quickly as possible. Even better, with this feature, you don’t have to give out your direct phone number to customers.

3. Internal chat. With the newest feature of MyCase, internal chat, you can communicate seamlessly with your staff no matter where they are, using the same system that you use to track and manage cases. You can communicate with groups and send direct messages, all from a single window.
