A Legal Operating System That Serves Everyone
Our mission is to transform the legal experience for all with GetLEGAL Software. To fulfill that mission, we’re designing a system that operates in the best interest of everyone involved in legal–the consumers who face a legal challenge and need legal assistance, and the legal professionals, lawyers, and firms looking to serve those consumers.
That system is the legal operating system.
In the traditional context of computing or technology, an operating system is software that runs your computer or piece of technology. The operating system manages the computer’s processes, connects hardware and software, and allows you to interact with it and use it to its full capabilities.
Our legal system is as complex as any computer. And the legal operating system will allow everyone involved in legal to connect to it, interact with it, and use its full power to solve the legal challenges we face.
What is the legal operating system?
The legal operating system is the combination of cloud-based and client-centered technologies including legal practice management, customer relationship management, accounting, payments, and more that work together seamlessly and connect the key areas of the legal journey with the individuals who are impacted by them.
Who is the legal operating system for?
The legal operating system serves everyone involved in legal matters. For you and your firm, it’s the critical infrastructure that makes your work easier, more efficient, and more profitable. It empowers you to deliver client-centered experiences, offer your services to more clients, function more seamlessly within our existing court systems, and get paid for your work.
For your clients, the legal operating system is in many ways invisible. However, we see it as the path connecting them to the legal services and solutions they seek.
To truly realize the benefits of the legal operating system, we must move beyond a system that supports lawyers and legal professionals at the firm level. The legal operating system needs to solve the pain points that clients experience when they experience them, and at the same time, provide solutions to the issues lawyers face.
What are the benefits of the legal operating system?
At its core, the legal operating system makes it easier for lawyers and clients to connect and collaborate, no matter who or where they are.
For clients, the legal operating system gives them more and better ways to connect with lawyers who can help meet their needs. They can find the right firm more easily, they can engage with law firms in multiple ways both before, during, and after their matter and they can enjoy flexible payment options.
For legal professionals, lawyers, and firms, the legal operating system helps deliver a client-centered experience. Firms can engage with clients in a way that suits the client best, whether communicating through automated text messages or even offering payment by credit card. The legal operating system also allows firms to centralize and simplify business operations, improving efficiency and profitability.
In addition, the legal operating system can help break down barriers to legal services that consumers face. We know there is a significant access to justice gap, and we know why this gap exists: Consumers aren’t aware of all the ways a lawyer can help them, they don’t know how to find the right lawyer or firm, they’re unsure how to navigate our complex court system, and they worry about the cost of legal services and/or don’t have the means to pay for legal services.
A fully realized legal operating system helps create a more inclusive legal community and more equitable legal system. It makes legal solutions more discoverable for clients, and easier for clients and firms to connect and stay connected. And with multiple payment options enabled by the legal operating system, justice becomes more affordable as well.
Laying the foundation of the legal operating system
The legal operating system meets the needs of clients and lawyers today. But there’s a huge opportunity for the system to evolve and become even better in the future.
That’s why GetLEGAL Software is committed to expanding the breadth and depth of our services to meet the needs of all parties involved, in all stages of the legal journey.
The legal operating system is still in its early stages, but we’re building and investing in the core systems that form the foundation of the legal operating system today and will empower its evolution in the years to come.
