NEW YORK -- July 9, 2013

LexisNexis^® Legal & Professional, a leading provider of content and
technology solutions, announced today the release of PCLaw^® 13, which
alongside new features, includes a major overhaul to the user interface of
PCLaw. The software product has long been an indispensable asset for firms who
rely on PCLaw for practice management.

“Our own research consistently demonstrates that smaller law firms find it
challenging to balance the practice of law with the business of law,” said
Loretta Ruppert, senior director for Law Firm Practice Management at
LexisNexis. “PCLaw 13 visually surfaces the right information into a
compelling and modern all-in-one software suite so attorneys can easily
monitor the firm's business performance without waiting for reports and
quickly find matter information when a client calls.”

PCLaw 13 provides a slick new interface that prominently displays three new
dashboards that provide an intuitive at-a-glance view of a firm’s daily
activities, client matters and financial performance. Each dashboard is
customizable and enables the user to easily drill down for a more in-depth
look at the data.

“My time should be spent on billable work, not administrative details,” said
Keith Upson, principal at the Upson Law Group, P.L. “PCLaw dashboards make it
so much easier to get a quick snapshot view of everything that's going on so I
can do just that.”

The three new dashboards include:

  *My Practice provides an at-a-glance summary of an attorney’s calendar, his
    or her “to do” list, and most recent matters a given lawyer has worked.
    The dashboard is structured to reflect how attorneys work and enables them
    to find the information they are seeking more quickly while also reducing
    the likelihood of missing a procedural step. The calendar provides a
    bi-directional integration with Microsoft^® Outlook^® so appointments
    scheduled are reflected in the My Practice dashboard and vice-versa.
  *My Clients delivers a snapshot view of the information related to a given
    client matter including contacts, documents, deadlines and client
    balances. This puts all the data related to a client at an attorney’s
    fingertips, provides simplified collaboration and allows the attorney to
    provide a higher level of client service.
  *My Business offers a summary look of the most frequently requested metrics
    regarding the financial performance of a firm including income and
    expenses, billable hours, work-in-process, receivables and bank balances.
    This provides real-time financial highlights, such as billable hour
    targets and financial health without having to run reports or
    cross-reference multiple sources of information, such as spreadsheets.

Alongside the new interface, PCLaw 13 provides two major new features designed
to streamline client intake and billing processes.

With the client intake template, a firm can simply interview a new client –
whether in a face-to-face meeting or by phone – or it can email a simple form
in Microsoft Word format and automatically import the data into PCLaw when the
client returns the form. In each case, the workflow process is the same, which
ensures the integrity and completeness of the information and offers options
to easily run conflict checks and generate an acceptance (or declination)
letter to a client.

The email templates make it easier for firms to email a client bill, which
also reduces the time to collection. Users can create custom email templates
that automatically pull in standard invoice summary details and present it
into the body of an email with an attached invoice. This ensures consistent
and professional invoicing in a short time.

“The new PCLaw is above and beyond – it marks a shift between the incremental
changes made in past and the monumental changes in this version,” added Upson.
“I’ve used PCLaw for many years now and what I’m most enthusiastic about is
how intuitive I find PCLaw13.”

LexisNexis is offering a 30-day single-user free trial to the new PC Law. This
offer is limited to only new customers and the offer is available only in
North America. For more information regarding this offer visit:
