  • I have worked with many other software products in this area, most of which are substandard. Clio allows me to work remotely when required, combined several other products into one, and their onboarding process and support have been patient when I needed assistance.

    The integration with Quickbooks has made the record keeping for my regulator much easier.


  • When a colleague recommended Clio, I wondered whether to pay for such a service before I had a single client. I purchased Clio Manage and Grow and have been so glad I did. Clio keeps everything organized or allows me to organize quickly. It processes payments, allows trust account reconciliation, sends documents for e-signature, and more. I recently connected Quickbooks Online with Clio, and it was seamless. I highly recommend Clio!!!

  • Clio’s templates allow me to create documents faster and easier, allowing me to get more work done in less time. The client portal allows me to be more responsive to my clients’ needs, therefore keeping them happier and helping me attract new clients (due to all the good reviews my satisfied clients leave me).

    “I was really nervous about the data migration but it was pretty much seamless. It was such a relief to hear that all the client files and data had been quickly migrated so that I could start working on the cases.”
