francis-george-BOXESSELECT LEGAL WAS RANKED FIRST FOR OVERALL CUSTOMER SATISFACTION BY THE LAW SOCIETY

“I have found that my systems now take the stress out of running my practice and it has streamlined how I spend my time and my efforts.”

Francis George, Managing Director, Francis George Solicitor-Advocate

BACKGROUND

Francis George is a higher rights qualified solicitor-advocate dealing with all aspects of litigation from multi-track trials to small claims matters.

His firm acts on behalf of and against major insurers, Non-Departmental Government Bodies together with private individuals and companies. He also specialises in Family Law.

 

WHY DID THEY CHOOSE LAWFUSION?

As the owner of a new start-up firm, Francis George did not have the resources available to implement and manage expensive and complex legal software systems. He needed to quickly find a reliable, fully integrated, accounts and case management system at an affordable price. Francis had to quickly find a way through the numerous legal software providers and their products. His decision was made easier when he decided to rely on the advice given by the Law Society. I wanted a solution that was recommended by the Law Society and when I noticed that Select Legal was ranked first for Overall Customer Satisfaction, I was happy to proceed with their system.”

THE SOLUTION

A remote installation of the LAWFUSION Accounts Desktop took place in October 2007, using a VPN link to the Francis George network. The free copy of Microsoft Database Engine was used to reduce software costs. Training took place the following day and by October 19th the system was live.

HOW HAS THE SOFTWARE HELPED HIM AND HIS FIRM?

As a new client I am still finding new areas to the software, all of these are useful to me and that the software would offer a range of innovative solutions to any discipline of legal practice.

“As a new start practice, the LAWFUSION Small Firm Edition has fitted my software needs perfectly. It is always stressful setting up a new business no matter what industry sector you are in and I have found that my systems now take the stress out of running my practice and it has streamlined how I spend my time and my efforts.”
