The Amicus Difference

Gavel & Gown was founded in 1993 by Ron Collins, who at the time was a partner at a large international law firm. The first version of Amicus Attorney was developed by Ron to help him practice law more efficiently. Shortly thereafter, Ron left his practice so he could focus on making his product available to other legal professionals. Every Amicus product since has maintained Ron’s unique vision of being designed from the lawyer down, not the software up. This guiding principle is what sets Amicus products apart from other practice management programs.

We are committed to making the practice of law more profitable and the lives of legal professionals easier through the provision of software solutions that work the way lawyers do. That is why every day, tens of thousands of lawyers rely on Amicus to keep themselves organized, reduce their risk and increase their billable time.
