Client Support Specialist

Are you ready to change the way small law firms work for the better?

At Smokeball our first priority is the success of our clients. Smokeball itself is a productivity software designed to help small law firms and individual lawyers manage and execute their work. As a team, we turn Smokeball into much more than just software. Working together, we transform Smokeball into a force that drives positive change in our clients’ businesses.

For us, client success is a combination of a few factors: successful Smokeball clients don’t just use the product, but see value in how it helps them run their business and organize their days. To accomplish this, we are the only legal software company to provide one-on-one training and support to our clients in person, over the internet, and on the telephone…which is where you come in.
