Simple and Attractive

  • Completely browser-based, everything happens over SSL (the same security protocol used by banks and militaries) and hosted locally in SA
  • Accessible from anywhere, anytime and on any device. You are free to use whatever device and operating systems you please on your desktop and mobile devices.
  • No installation - just log in with your favourite modern browser
  • Low monthly cost, no capital outlay, minimal training (comprehensive yet simple and intuitive)
  • Continually evolving, always up to date.
  • Sensitive data like passwords encrypted; comprehensive data backups.
  • A fraction of the security risk of installed on-site servers where you are exposed to risks of viruses, ransomware, hardware failure and where you are dependent on expensive and unreliable on-site support

Matter Centric with cross-matter Timesheet

Easy to learn. Lawyers have one or more clients, each with one or more Matters (instructions from the client). LawPracticeZA is a Matter-centric system: everything revolves around the Matter. Start typing any part of the client name or matter description in the filter to quickly find the matter you are looking for. Prioritise your data according to date, urgency or access an archived matter instantly.

Easy and Quick Billing from anywhere

Billing

LAWPracticeza provides great flexibility in enabling you to capture time-based or unitary fees, and pending disbursements. Standard posting codes are provided but you can add your own, with default amounts. Each Fee Earner can have multiple hourly rates; the fee level is set on the Matter to ensure consistent billing. Use the timer or enter time directly.

Invoices generated from unbilled fees and disbursements can be emailed (to the email address entered on the Matter account) or viewed, on demand. All calculations and accounting transactions are automatic.

Reports on Demand

Reports

LawPracticeZA also provides a number of ready-made reports, both to assist with managing the business and maintaining appropriate business and trust controls. All reports can be displayed in the browser or downloaded as Excel (.xlsx).

Material Design

Calendar

Our interface was made making use of Google's Material Design approach, with clear intuitive widgets and familiar patterns like the matter calendar

Developer-Friendly

LawPracticeZA has been built with an API-first approach. All business logic operations and data IO can be performed securely over our RESTful JSON API mounted at /api. This means that you are free to integrate LawPracticeZA with other systems such as document generation, business management, customer relationship management, etc.

The API is self-documenting - navigating to /api once you are logged in to LawPracticeZA lists the available root objects, for example "matter". Navigating to /api/matter then lists the available methods on the matter object. For instance to draw a list of all your matters, go to /api/matter/list.

Full API access is part of your LawPracticeZA subscription, there are no extra developer fees or additional licenses required.

LawPracticeZA is written in Python using many excellent libraries such as CherryPy, SQLAlchemy and Mako templates. Get in touch to discuss your integration plans.
