  • I like Clio because it is easy to train employees on. The document management system is fast and allows large files such as client documents to be uploaded. Contact info and important case notes are front page of the matter. Easy to track time with dedicated time-track start button on top of every page; click it and go.


  • Clio is always adapting to improve and take feature requests into consideration while balancing innovation with consistency of interface and only incremental changes so as to not frustrate the user experience with too many changes. Beyond the tech, right from the beginning many years ago Clio stood out in customer service in terms of being very responsive, striving to find a solution to every problem where available.
