What people are saying about Amicus Small Firm Accounting:


"...elegantly easy to use..."

"This software is, like Amicus Attorney, elegantly easy to use, attractive, works splendidly with Amicus Attorney, and creates a great alternative to PCLaw. This software saves hours a month in time entry and billing production. Gavel and Gown has hit a home run."

Richard Georges
Future Lawyer


" excellent software package for small to mid-sized firms..."

"The evaluation in the five basic areas of professional timekeeping and billing: setup, entry, pre-billing, billing and reporting demonstrated an excellent software package for small to mid-sized firms looking for accounting to supplement an existing case management system or for those Amicus Attorney users looking to consolidate their software packages with a single vendor. Well done!"
