ContactsLaw is a single product that provides complete practice management and facilitates all day-to-day operations in a law firm. It gives your practice all the tools it needs to do the job, and does so in a centralised, highly-cohesive and integrated manner. Central to ContactsLaw is the concept of the contact. You only ever enter contact details once, and then access them infinitely, linking them to files, documents, transactions and other items within the system. You can then search all of your records from one place. ContactsLaw can make the paperless office a reality!
