Happy end of summer! The team has been working on some great features, some of them pretty big! Here are a few updates that we just released into the Lawmatics platform.

This month, we’re excited to announce that we have released a new statute of limitations field, originating attorney/lead attorney features, and more! Read on to learn more about these impactful enhancements to the platform.

Statute of Limitations

We know that many of our customers have statute of limitations (SOL) that they need to track when taking on new cases. We believe this is an important part of the intake process, so we are happy to say that we built SOL into Lawmatics as a native feature.

You can enable SOL on a practice area basis. Doing so will add a SOL field to the matter details. What’s great is that the SOL date can be used in event automations and is visible in the Lawmatics calendar.

New User Lookup Fields

The team is proud to announce that we added “Originating Attorney” and “Lead Attorney” as native fields to Lawmatics. These new fields will allow you more granular tracking and reporting on key metrics for your firm. Key to this new feature is the ability to base matter access permissions on these fields. For example, you can now limit a user’s access to only cases that they are assigned as the lead attorney.

Keep your eye out for another addition to this feature set coming in the coming weeks. We will be adding general staff linking, giving you the ability to link as many firm users to a matter as general staff. This will also come with a new permission setting, allowing you to limit a user’s access to only matters they are linked to.

As always, this release includes many bug fixes and improvements. Thank you for your feedback, and keep it coming! Your feedback is an invaluable part of our ongoing effort to improve the Lawmatics platform.

Check in next month for more updates and improvements from the Lawmatics team! Not using Lawmatics yet? There’s never been a better time to start. Book a personalized demo to learn how we can help you grow your law firm!
