Practice Management for the Wise Lawyer

Sharon Hunter - Hunter Solicitors - Southport Qld 

We replaced our previous accounting software with Wise Owl Legal, which is proving to really suit the needs of our small and busy practice. Our staff have had no problems learning and using the programme, and if ever there is a query, the support team is super quick with assistance. It's great to have such a wonderful product available at a very reasonable price. Wise Owl Legal simply suits us to a tee.

Our customers use it. Like a breath of fresh air compared to other packages out there. Easy to support, doesn't kill customer servers. Cloud options for those who want it.

Michelle Phi - Accountant - Brisbane 

I had an opportunity to work with Wise Owl Legal which I believe a very helpful and essential software for businesses. It offers multiple functions with a wide range of uses. You will definitely need a software like this for your entity. The software is created and maintained by a talented team who are responsible, considerate people and have extensive experiences in both accounting and IT aspects. You will find everything you need from most accounting softwares in the market just by using Wise Owl Legal. Apparently, this software will not only help increasing value of your business but also saving you time and money! For these reasons, I will strongly recommend this product to businesses and legal firms.  July 2018

Moving to new software for our trust accounting seemed daunting but Karen and her team gave us every confidence. Nothing was too much trouble, no question too silly to answer. The transition went smoothly due to their comprehensive planning, tutorials and outstanding helpline. Wise Owl is very user friendly. We were up and going in a remarkably short time. Our only regret is not switching to Wise Owl sooner!  (October 2019)

It is with pleasure that I provide this testimonial of Karen McDonald and Wise Owl software.

Ms McDonald has been a consultant to our law firm for a period of approximately 12 years.  Firstly, as the technical support and manager of PC Law, secondly, as our accountant and thirdly as the proprietor of Wise Owl.

Ms McDonald has provided extraordinary technical and professional assistance over an extended period.

In particular, Wise Owl provides a cost effective and efficient software programme totally servicing the requirements of the QLD Law Society and the firm itself.

Ms McDonald’s level of expertise and support is cost effective, speedy and professional, the consequence of which lessens any negative impact upon the firm.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ms McDonald and Wise Owl.

Love the New Features and User Friendliness  

Upon entering the industry several years ago, I was introduced to Wise Owl Legal (and its counterparts). I can honestly say that out of all the programs that I have worked with, Wise Owl Legal is the most user friendly and logical Practice Management Software that I have dealt with.

I am able to enter my time, view my favourite reports and easily prepare bills for the boss’s review without delays or unknown errors. If I have to do a task on Wise Owl that I haven’t done recently, I can easily look up the content specific help pages and remind myself of how to do that task. Not only this, but Wise Owl Legal gives helpful hints on most screens whether it be finalising my time or creating a bill.

I love using the new features that come into play each update including the Wise Owl Outlook Helper that has saved me sooooo much time saving my emails! Looking forward to the future of Wise Owl and what it has in store for us!

The introduction of Wise Owl has really made a difference to our office. It is both user friendly and has the ability to save an awful lot of time (and therefore money). It is also competitively priced and the support that is provided by Karen is second to none. Well worth investigating this product for your office. (August 2018)

Alison Knowler -  Wettenhall Silva Osborne Butler - Cairns Qld

We converted to Wise Owl Legal in November 2016. This software is so user friendly and the functions it offers are very suitable for our daily use. This software offers an easy way to manage trust accounting and track where a matter is up to. I have also found that if there is something specific our company would find useful, it can be added to the program. The developer and helpdesk are very quick to respond to issues and to take on suggestions for any new ways in which the software would be more user friendly for our needs as a company.

Peter Cobb - Lawyer - Canberra ACT  

I was introduced to Karen from Cascade Consulting by another solicitor about 10 years ago. The other solicitor was full of praise for Karen and how she had helped him with his business. I was dissatisfied with my accountant at that time and had been looking for someone else to engage.

I made an appointment and met Karen and was impressed with her knowledge and approach to business. I am the Principal of a small legal practice which employs three staff and I had specific concerns that as I was only small, would the larger firms be given preferential treatment. Karen assured me that I would be provided with the same high quality service and advice that all of her clients receive.

I can say that in the time since Karen has become my accountant and became my contact for the legal software system I installed, there has never been a time when I have had to wait for Karen to get back to me. Karen has been fabulous in providing ongoing training and responses to my questions.

The support system she has built is fantastic. I would whole heartedly recommend Karen in her role as legal software support management and accounting.

 I am available to talk with any perspective client about the services Karen provides.  (August 2016)
