What do you like best?

The only good thing was the transfer of contacts into Cosmolex. That was easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The billing features were inefficient; it took me a whole day to do billing. It was not user friendly; I don't think I ever learned how to use all the features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Shop around and make sure Cosmolex has the features your business requires. If you can pay someone to spend a whole day doing billing, go for it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

None. Cosmolex made me realize how much better other softwares are. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We use Cosmolex to manage our 3-lawyer office and all its files/accounting/task assignment/billing and it has been great. While there were some learning curve items, it has been great. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

sometimes the structure means that if you find out you have been doing something incorrectly, fixing it is not easy. But there is no way to know what you don't know, until it happens. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Billing is easy, it syncs completely with our LawPay payment system, saves every email to the case it concerns, and has made working remotely during this pandemic a breeze. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Ease of use. Bookkeeping, accounts payable, and accounts receivable do not require another program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Having to close the timekeeper window to access other parts of the program and the inability to toggle a task into an appointment and back again. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Handling accounts receivable easier and easy access to status of billing and payments on all matters. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love that this integrates the accounting with law practice management. I don't use all the features but it is plenty robust enough for me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of anything. My practice is fairly simple and this software more than fills the bill for me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a big deal to add/migrate to a new/different practice management suite. I was a new practice so I didn't have a ton of files. I would suggest researching the many tools out there and decide what will fit best for you. But I do love that this makes the accounting part of the practice mgmt software. It took awhile to set it up and get comfortable with it but now I find it pretty easy to use. You can find partner accountants, from the CL site, who are familiar with CL and can help with this. I used one for six months but now I can do everything on my own. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I tried QuickBooks for awhile but, although I know many law firms use it, it isn't designed for the needs of attorneys. Thus, you had to do some workarounds. I wanted accounting that was designed for law firms and integrates with law practice mgmt functions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Program is cloud based and easy to read, mostly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Screen size is not adjustable and still see the entire page. I use a split screen and Cosmolex does not resize accurately for the split screen. I don't like the timekeeping because it jumps around just when you want to start using it so you have to pause and wait for it to settle down before you can start typing your description. Description doesn't even show when using split screen. I don't like the billing because it fails to account accurately for the trust account. The vocabulary in the billing is not accurate (service tax instead of general excise tax). I am not accurately keeping time because it is not side by side with my work (the split screen problem). Looks cartoonish. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It takes some getting used to. I haven't used it, but I understand it is available for tablets and phones. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PClaw was freezing, giving us wrong information, duplicating bank balances, losing information. No real benefit yet, we are still trying to get everything corrected. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Response from Joshua Goldberg of CosmoLex

Thanks for your post and your honest feedback. You are definitely not alone with coming from PCLaw and I know it does take some time to adjust to the workflow and functions of a new program. We are here to help in any way we can. In regards to billing/trust accuracy, I suggest you reach out to our support team so that we can see exactly what you are experiencing. You can email support@cosmolex.com or call 732-595-9015 for assistance. With resizing for split screens, I will ask our development team to test out and take a look. We aim to give you the best experience possible, so your feedback is much appreciated!

What do you like best?

We enjoy the fact that we can easily create and edit bills, and that the entire system is cloud-based. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike and because it is cloud-based it is always being updated and improved. I do wish I had the ability to "no-charge" portions of time entries. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Each individual attorney is able to manage their own billing and collection process. Because this can be done efficiently, collection is faster and it is done with less administrative burden. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like that it has fully integrated accounting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is not as user friendly and intuitive as other programs, like MyCase. The e-mailing forwarding process is not as good as that of MyCase, and I wish there was a desktop option. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Helps me to keep track of my accounting and time I need to go to court. Email integration with clients and calendar integration. It is a great way to send my client invoices and request documents. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

no legal writing aspect so that it can help autofill my briefs and have briefs ready to go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great software to for almost any practice. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Advanced billing and time tracking also a great place to store client files and information that is available right on your phone. Billing is great too in that I can both email and mail my clients bills. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Cosmolex makes it super-simple and very intuitive to handle ALL aspects of the management of our practice in one place! Previously, we had three different programs for the time and billing, bookkeeping and document management. Now, it's all in one place. The reports are powerful and easy to use, and the customer support is beyond anything I've ever experienced! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to access the accounting features via the mobile app. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do it! You won't regret the decision. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's been a great time saver and certainly reduces the likelihood of errors in working between three different programs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

That the accounting is built into the software management program. I love that it is web based and can be accessed anywhere. It also can be synced with quickbooks which is awesome for someone uses this finance software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The cost is pretty high for a solo practitioner. The learning curve also seems very steep - it does not feel intuitive at all. The accounting isn't as good as quickbooks though. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

That it is a complete practice management system. I have always had to use two systems previous to finding Cosmolex, particularly at a "small firm" price point. Cosmolex handles all of our needs and their creative, think-outside-the-box support team has found a way to address every concern we have had! We're ready to sign up for year two! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish that we could print or export transactions from the Chart of Accounts. Also tie-ins to our online banking would be a great help as we have quite a few auto-pays. If we can't tie into online banking, automatic/memorized transactions would be a good alternative. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely give it a try. We didn't regret it and are ready to commit to our second year! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've been able to consolidate all of our firm management, including accounting in non-case related areas into one package. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
