Civil Litigation Software for Attorneys to Increase Your Practice Productivity
Civil litigation cases require detailed recorded keeping and lock-tight organization. Smokeball civil litigation software acts as your second chair, keeping your team and your cases on track (and on time) every step of the way.
A single source of truth for every civil litigation matter
Manage your caseload with ease. Smokeball tags your communications, deadlines, court information, statutes of limitations and more to the related client matter for easy access by every member of your firm. Plus, our civil litigation software works hand in hand with Microsoft Word and Office for two-way synchronization of your calendar appointments and email conversations, keeping you ahead of deadlines and on the same page.
Build a firm-wide to-do list with civil litigation workflows
Ensure all tasks are assigned, tracked and completed specifically to a case’s stage or requirement with Smokeball’s Tasks and Workflows. Apply a pre-built workflow, or create custom workflows that are unique to your firm’s processes and deadlines. Smokeball’s most-used civil litigation workflows include:
Discovery Received: A cadence of tasks for discovery served to a client. View task details, checklists, notes and assigned staff.
Statute of Limitations: A reminder series as the Statute of Limitations date approaches on an individual matter.
Trial Workflow: The complete leadup series of required tasks, projects and meetings to prepare for trial. From setting up deposition meetings, drafting interrogatories, and scheduling trial prep with a client, you’ll rest assured that no detail has fallen through the cracks.
Take the stress out of billing
Firms using Smokeball bill two times more, on average, compared to those that don’t use automatic time tracking. With the deepest Microsoft Office integration on the market, Smokeball records work your civil litigation firm does, on every matter, without any additional effort. Send an email, draft a document, and record notes on a case file, all without even thinking about logging your time.
When it’s time to send invoices, easily review all your activity records to decide what’s billable and what’s not, ensuring accurate billing. Even if you're released from a case (as civil litigators sometimes are), you’ll have the data you need to collect for your valuable work.
Stay connected with Communicate
Smokeball’s secure Communicate client portal and text messaging capabilities make communicating with clients seamless and private. Request documents, signatures and more while saving every conversation to the related matter.
Communicate also helps you facilitate internal conversations that used to happen around the office coffee machine. Message team members about a civil litigation case or transfer tasks quickly — from anywhere, on any device.
