Clio helps me keep a busy criminal calendar organized so that I’m ready for multiple, back-to-back hearings without needing to bring along huge files.

I've used TimeMatters, ProLaw and Abacus. Clio has more practical features than all of the above combined. It also has the easiest and most intuitive user interface. You can do amazing things within a few hours. Most criminal defense attorneys bill on a flat rate. The more time we can free up, the more cases we can handle. Clio started saving me time from Day 1.
