With Smokeball, you're not just getting software. You'll benefit from our community of legal experts and connect with your peers.
This software has changed my life! When I first implemented Smokeball, I almost instantly noticed improvements. Smokeball has everything you need to run a successful firm, with powerful file management, precedents, billing and excellent client support. I never write reviews, but I feel compelled to write this because Smokeball is the best decision I've made for my business. The software is incredibly affordable given the value it provides - it paid for itself in a week. Frankly, you'd be crazy not to get it.
Really love Smokeball’s automatic time and activity tracking - it is extremely helpful. It automatically and accurately records where you spend your time, so that you can know exactly how much time you are spending on all tasks including sending emails and drafting documents. Essentially this helps you get paid for your time and to be able to bill more product! It saves so much time and helps a lot in organizing our feedback. Awesome idea and huge potential."
