Arique Dross III, Founder and Managing Attorney at the Dross Law Firm

The Dross Law Firm offers services related to family law and criminal law with a focus in child welfare. Having lived his own experiences within both foster care and the criminal justice system, Arique became a lawyer to help parents and children during the most difficult times of their lives.

After working for the government, Arique knew that he didn’t want to be bound by red tape, and that he wanted to instead focus more on doing what’s right for families and their children. Now, working as his own boss, his biggest challenge is managing his clients, his time, and his calendar—and finding ways to balance work with family life. This is where Clio helps.

“I would absolutely recommend Clio to any attorney because of how easy it is to use. It simplifies your law firm practice and makes it less stressful. Clio is the system for that, and it works.”

How Clio helped


Ad hoc case notes to comprehensive case management

“Before Clio, everything was manual. I had a Word document. I would add court entries. I would log notes and billable hours. It was very time consuming. I struggled to manage 40 or 50 cases at a time. Now, because of how automated, efficient, and easy Clio is, I’m able to manage 80 or 90 cases at a time.”

Inefficient billing to automated billing

“I had a table in a Word document where I entered the date, the activity, and the time. I had to manually add it up, and then double and triple check. It was very hectic when billing for a lot of clients. Now, I save two to four hours per client because everything’s in one system. Everything is very organized.”

No intake system to simple, straightforward intake tools

“Before Clio Grow, my intake would take one or two hours. Now, it takes maybe 30 minutes.” With Clio Grow, Arique has all of the intake forms and retainer agreements on hand whenever someone reaches out with an emergency.
