Lexicata Review: Features, Pricing, and More

Lexicata Logo

Lexicata is a cloud-based program to help lawyers with Client Intake and Client Relationship Management (CRM).  These two areas are essential to any lawyer who wants to streamline their office operations.  The right management tool can save you hundreds of hours every year.

Many applications in the market specialize in either CRM or Client Intake, so I was skeptical about a package deal.  Plus, a lot case management software (like Clio or PracticePanther) already provide these services within their software, so why would I want something separate?

The short answer: Lexicata’s Client Intake and CRM are much better than anything I’ve found in case management software.

Of course, Lexicata is not for every law firm.  This review will break down if Lexicata is right for you. (more…)

Legal Ranker is a relatively new company providing SEO services for attorneys, founded by SEO entrepreneur Anthony Kantara in 2016.  After years of developing successful websites and his own proprietary system of effective SEO ranking, Anthony and Legal Ranker have provided SEO services for attorneys in major metropolitan areas, improving each firm’s rank often to the top 5 in Google results.  Anthony follows the latest SEO tips and tricks and tries them all on his websites before prescribing them to Legal Ranker clients.

I’ll cut to the chase: what attracted me to this company was its core values.  In previous posts on Small Firm Legal Marketing, we’ve discussed the importance of owning your firm’s website, and avoiding long-commitment contracts.  In Legal Ranker’s system, the law firm retains ownership over the website and commits only to a monthly contract.  For these and other reasons we’ll discuss, this SEO services company is a cut above the the industry standard.
