Cloud software provider LEAP has launched a new legal aid platform for criminal and civil matters in England and Wales.
The integrated solution provides case management, time recording and billing on a single platform.
LEAP works closely with the Legal Aid Agency to make regular enhancements to its software to ensure that it is up to date with the latest requirements.
Major features of LEAP Legal Aid include time recording, complete information capture, support for multiple time entries, fees and disbursements, and integration with the Crown Court portal.
Kirsteen Forisky, legal aid manager at LEAP UK, commented: “At a time when some legal software suppliers are paying legal aid lip service, we at LEAP are bucking the trend by making a major investment into legal aid. We are proud that our software now makes it easier, quicker and more profitable for clients to undertake legal aid work. We recently had over 100 legal firms attend a webinar about the new version and the reaction was extremely positive.”
Ali Hussain of Legal Justice Solutions said of the platform: “As a legal aid firm, we were looking for a partner who could provide us with a system to make the life of caseworkers easier. LEAP does this. The legal aid time recording is easy to use and billing is made easy to navigate. With the recent update to the system we received training which was very good and support was on hand if any issues arose.”
