"Super helpful citation tool"

What do you like best?

I really loved this software, because it lets me easily access a multitude of different cases. This easy access is crucial right now, because it helps me to efficiently write my memorandums. I love that I can also filter my searches to only include certain jurisdictions.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about Lexis is that sometimes the shepardizing function can be a little confusing. It is sometimes not exactly clear whether or not the law is still good based on the treatment codes. I am still attempting to figure that function all out.

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

Lexis helps me easily find cases and other supporting primary and secondary sources, which are necessary to back up my argument regarding a specific legal issue.

Another benefit is that you can earn points based on how much you interact with the website. The more I interact and conduct daily searches, the more points I will earn. The points then can be use to purchase various online gift cards to my favorite stores or other leisurely activities, such as traveling, skydiving, golfing, etc.

Since I do not have an exact title at my current job, all of the employees here use Lexis for Microsoft Office, when writing briefs or small arguments for the immigration court or Federal court. It is also so easy to cite and just look up what you need and Bam! We have the Lexis advance attached to Microsoft office which makes it a million times easier to use. just click a link and done.

"Well done and underrated product!"

What do you like best?

Wow, where to start, LexisNexis for Office provides a seamless integration between your Lexis subscription and Office products like Word and Outlook. It's a real time saver to be able to pull in cites and links without having to cut and paste and have separate browsers open. A real game changer.

What do you dislike?

It is necessary to go outside of the software to do further investigation and searching. It's expected and not a big deal, just would be nice to have a mini browser to search within.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Utilize it! Or switch from another service to Lexis to utilize it.

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

It helps in drafting legal briefs, letters, and anything referencing citations or links. It's been a godsend in crafting powerful documents.

"Great for Drafting Legal Documents"

What do you like best?

You can Shepardize within the document and also create a customized table of authorities. This office simplifies drafting so you don't have to Shepardize separately or spend a lot of time on your table of authorities.

What do you dislike?

I don't like using the Lexis Advance feature while working within the document. Might be easier for some, but I prefer to do the research prior to writing and then drafting my document.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Spend some time learning to use the tools. Once you know how to use them, it really does cut down the time you spend drafting documents.

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

Lexis for Microsoft Office reduces the time spent on Shepardizing and creating your table of contents

"Hands down the best Lexis add-on I've seen."

What do you like best?

Saves so much time! You can Shepardize your motions right inside of Microsoft Word. You can convert an opposing party's pleading from a PDF into a word document and go straight to the authority. You can create tables of authorities in seconds, which used to take over an hour. Unbelievable time saver for the legal document drafter!

What do you dislike?

So far, Ohio is not a supported citation format, which is where I practice. For the most part there are not stylistic differences, but it would be nice to have all states' citations as options.

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

Saving so much time by doing tasks in minutes that used to take hours. The combination of Lexis and Microsoft Office allows for much quicker document drafting and research to motion completion.

"Great, but Westlaw loyal"

What do you like best?

Sherpardizing and that there is a tool for tracking the history visually. I think there are awesome secondary sources and I like when lexis remembers what I have looked at in the past in the history and predicts what I am looking at for when I type. I addmittedly use Lexis everyday for reward points. That makes things exciting.

What do you dislike?

I think that westlaw is easier to use. I feel like they're a little less commerical, but the porducts are very similar.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Very expensive!

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