Law Fluent's matter management platform allows you to manage workflow efficiently online, and provides clients with secure access to their matters with in-app messaging between clients and lawyers.
Redefining how lawyers work to maximise collaboration, flexibility and efficiency!
We believe innovation and change within the legal industry will be driven by client needs and demands, and technology. Originally developed in July 2013 for our own virtual law firm, Law Fluent was built to manage legal matters, tasks, remote working lawyers and practice expertise all online, and to communicate with our clients through the app. Essential to our vision for Law Fluent was giving client users access to multiple law firms who utilise Law Fluent for their practice, offering a secure client portal to practice clients and creating a single access point for clients to all their advisors. Given the success of both our virtual law firm and the Law Fluent app, and the increase in ‘New Law’ models in Australia, the legal industry was crying out for an innovative software solution like Law Fluent.

The new way of practicing law, we're here to help
You said the App is available free for 30 days, but what are the fees after the trial period ends?
That's right, Law Fluent offers a 30 day no obligation free trial. If you want to continue using Law Fluent after the trial ends, you will need to select one of our subscription plans and supply valid current credit card details.
During the free trial period and thereafter, do we need to sign an agreement?
Can Law Fluent integrate with other time recording, billing or document generation platforms?
Not yet. We are working through our key list of enhancements, including reporting and integrations with other platforms, including AI and time-keeping applications. In the meantime, LAWyal Solicitors, our virtual law firm currently operating through Law Fluent, requires only Harvest timekeeping, and Xero book keeping, to compliment its matter management through Law Fluent. We will keep you updated on future integrations and reporting functionality.
How often will there be updates to the App?
We are constantly enhancing and refining Law Fluent, and will continue to introduce new features and make improvement updates regularly. We will let everyone using Law Fluent know when key updates have been made, and the new features and improvements that apply. We also love to hear and learn from you, and make a point of considering every idea and feedback that comes our way.
How can I become a virtual lawyer and will Law Fluent help?
Once you've decided how you want to structure your virtual practice (ILP, partnership, sole practitioner), and you have the right practicing certificate and PI insurance, your systems are key. With Law Fluent, you can manage online your matters and tasks with clients, manage your lawyers and their expertise and tasks, and provide your clients with access to their portal to collaborate between you all. You could compliment Law Fluent with systems like Harvest (for time-keeping) and Xero (for accounting, which integrates with Harvest), and for email LAWyal has Gmail. Together these systems provide a simple inexpensive cloud based solution to running a virtual law firm.
What IT support and services will Law Fluent provide?
During the free period and thereafter, you will have access to a support email which we will monitor between the hours of 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday (excluding NSW public holidays). We will not be offering any additional services to tailor the platform, integrate with your systems or migrate data. The platform is being offered on an 'as is' basis. For more information see our Terms of Service.
