Law firm accounting has several solid financial tools with Aderant for general case, financial, document, time and record management. A primary focus of the Aderant Expert Sierra software is to help our legal practice clients to centralize their data, migrating them from different systems and onto the Web. The Aderant activity dashboard enables law partners to view numerous details of their practice in one display. Users can customize the dashboard to their exact preferences. They can track their client’s contacts, payments and activities in their customer database. Numerous day-to-day activities can be automated with Aderant.

Cloud Based Functionality

Our law firm CPAs are fully equipped to explain the key benefits of the cloud-based systems to our clients. Our legal practice clients don't need to pay for servers and can add features, whenever they want when they move to the cloud.
