The security of having your own database on your own server – nothing is stored in the cloud or on your device.

Your file list is at your fingertips. Handy shortcuts help you do a complete time entry with just a few touches. The second you hit save, it is not only on your phone, it is also in your Amicus database at the office. So your time is on the client file and ready for billing, wherever you are!

Using bank-grade encryption and the incredibly secure Microsoft Azure, Amicus Advantage helps you make more money by ensuring that you can always record your billable time.

Unlimited Support
Everything you need

The Amicus Advantage plan was designed to give you peace of mind. That’s why every plan includes unlimited technical support. Which starts with the ability to call the Amicus tech support 1-800-472-2289 as many times as you like, whenever you need assistance.

Amicus Advantage technical support includes:

  • Unlimited Telephone Support: Call us toll-free with an unlimited number of inquiries (In North America only).
  • Pre-Arranged Call Backs: Schedule a time that is convenient for you to have one of our support technicians call you.
  • Unlimited Email Support: Send your technical support questions to support@amicusattorney.com and we will respond back.
  • Remote Desktop Assistance: Technical Support Representatives can remotely access your desktop to help diagnose and resolve issues. (Customers always have full control of all remote sessions including access to a log of support activity.)

Client Portal
Improve client service

In these competitive times, your clients want to feel more connected and in control of their legal work. With the Amicus Client Portal, they will.

The Amicus Client Portal gives you the ability to easily share information electronically with clients, so you can work faster, more collaboratively and demonstrate value to your clients.

Your clients will be able to use a browser to log into a secure entry point as part of the legal services you provide them. The portal is branded for your firm, so it looks exclusive to you. And because all the data resides on your own server, you, and your clients, can have peace of mind that your data is safe and protected.

Are your clients constantly asking you for file updates? With a few simple clicks, your clients can view and download documents, see their file, provide commentary or instructions and upload relevant information. This is a mutually beneficial time-saver that brings efficiency to an entirely new level. Your clients will love it, and be all the more impressed with your firm.

Of course, nothing gets exposed on the Client Portal unless you want it to be, and clients can only access it if you invite them to.

The Amicus Client Portal is yet another great benefit of Amicus Advantage and the fabulous mobility and accessibility it provides.

Unlimited Upgrades
Get the most out of your Amicus

All the new features
Amicus Attorney is always evolving. Every year there are great new features. Many are suggested by some of the thousands of law firms using Amicus – great ideas about how to make it even better.

Others come from changes in technology, as new capabilities become available for enhancing the practice of law in new ways. All add significant enhancements that will improve your practice. So once a year Amicus is upgraded, keeping it current and the best it can be.

Staying compatible
The world of software is complex and constantly changing. Changes in operating systems and other non-Amicus software products happen all the time. When these changes occur they often require updates to Amicus to accommodate them.

In order to receive these updates and continue to operate smoothly in a constantly changing environment, your Amicus needs to stay up to date. Staying compatible means you should always be running the most current version of your Amicus software.

Incredibly cost effective
Upgrades to Amicus Attorney can be purchased at any time. But the best way to get them is with Amicus Advantage. That’s because all upgrades are included with Amicus Advantage at no extra charge.

In fact, the entire cost of an Amicus Advantage subscription, with all its many benefits, from browser access to smartphones, client portal to unlimited support, is typically less than the cost of an annual upgrade.

It just makes so much sense to subscribe to Amicus Advantage.

Continued Education
Learning opportunities

The Amicus Advantage plan includes free monthly educational webinars that will help you to apply our latest technologies to your law practice.

Customers like you tell us what they would like to learn more about, and we schedule sessions to help.

The more you learn about Amicus, the more you will be able to take advantage of its many great features for enhancing your practice.

Amicus Advantage FAQ’s

What is Amicus Advantage?

Amicus Advantage is an optional subscription that an Amicus customer can choose to enroll in. Once the subscription fee is paid, all the benefits of the plan apply with no additional charges.

How is pricing for Amicus Advantage determined?

Pricing for Amicus Advantage is based on the Amicus product(s) you have and the number of licenses you have at your firm. This information is used to calculate an annual fee for your specific firm.

How long does an Amicus Advantage Plan last?

Amicus Advantage is purchased for an initial three-year term, with annual renewals after that.

Do I have to pay for all three years up front?

No. Amicus Advantage plans are billed annually. You will only be charged up front for the first year of your plan. Years two and three will be billed to your credit card 15 days prior to the anniversary of your initial enrollment in Amicus Advantage.

If I am not enrolled in Amicus Advantage, can I still purchase upgrades?

Yes. If you are not enrolled in Amicus Advantage you may still purchase upgrades when you want them. It’s just not as cost effective to do it that way. And if you want technical support as well, it makes no sense to do it “a la carte” – Amicus Advantage is much better value.

Do I have to enroll in Amicus Advantage to get support?

No. If you do not enroll in Amicus Advantage, you will still have the opportunity to purchase Amicus Support Plans for any supported Amicus products.

Can I buy Amicus Advantage for less than three years?

Not originally. Amicus Advantage plans have an initial term of three years. After that the renewals are for one-year terms.

Which Amicus products are covered under Amicus Advantage?

Amicus Advantage is only available on the newest version of Amicus Premium. Currently that means Amicus Attorney Premium 2015.

What if I am currently using an older version of Amicus and would like to enroll in Amicus Advantage?

If you are using an older version of Amicus, you need to upgrade to the version of Amicus that is currently supported by Amicus Advantage.

If I enroll in Amicus Advantage do I still have to buy upgrades when new versions of Amicus come out?

No. If you are enrolled in Amicus Advantage you do not have to purchase upgrades when new versions of Amicus are released. You will automatically receive the upgrade – one of the many great benefits!

Do I have to enroll in Amicus Advantage?

No. Enrollment in Amicus Advantage is completely optional. But it makes so much sense to do so!

Do I have to purchase Amicus Advantage when I first purchase Amicus?

No. You can subscribe to Amicus Advantage at any time, provided you are using the currently shipping version of Amicus Premium. Simply contact our Sales Department at 1-800-472-2289.

Amicus software products come with a 30-day money back guarantee. What if I decide to return my software?

No problem. If you return your software within your 30-day money back guarantee period, your Amicus Advantage enrollment fee will be refunded in full.

What if I already have an Amicus Support plan?

No problem. If you already have an Amicus Support Plan and would like to enroll in Amicus Advantage, we will credit an appropriately pro-rated amount of your unused Support Plan towards your Amicus Advantage purchase.

What happens if I let my Amicus Advantage plan lapse?

Amicus Advantage subscriptions are for an initial term of three years. At the end of the third year, you need to notify us if you want to cancel it. If you choose to do so, your Amicus Advantage plan will lapse. You will no longer receive upgrades or support for your Amicus products, nor will you be able to use the mobility features nor the client portal.

To re-initiate your Amicus Advantage you will have to re-enroll for another term. If a new version of your Amicus software is released during the period when you are not enrolled in Amicus Advantage, you will have to pay for the upgrade.

If I have more than one Amicus product can I buy an Amicus Advantage plan for just one product?

No. Because your Amicus software products work together, you must purchase an Amicus Advantage Plan for all of your Amicus software products.

What happens if I want to add licenses to my Amicus installation?

No problem. You can purchase additional licenses and corresponding additional Amicus Advantage for those licenses at any time.

How often do Amicus upgrades come out?

Amicus normally releases a new product version each calendar year. Our goal is to continue with this schedule. However, as stated in the licensing agreement for your Amicus software, we cannot guarantee the timing of any future upgrades or updates to Amicus. There are simply too many variables in the software world to make such a guarantee possible.

What if my credit card charge does not go through in year two or three?

Amicus Advantage plans are sold for a guaranteed three-year term. At the time of purchase we only bill you for the first year’s annual fee. However, you agree in advance that the annual fees for years two and three can be charged to your credit card when they become due.

We know that credit card information changes from time to time and you may not remember to notify us in advance. So if your credit card transaction fails to be authorized we will notify you and allow you 15 days to resolve the issue.

However, if you fail to resolve the payment issue within 15 days you will be considered in default of your Amicus Advantage Plan agreement.
