What Our Users Are Saying
ACCURATE: Our process provides accurate codes for all UTBMS tasks and expenses.
LedesAssist uses your own billing data to provide accurate codes for all UTBMS billing tasks and expenses — just the way you like them!
If your firm is new to LEDES coding, don’t worry — you can just use our data to complete the automation!
Before you send any bills to your clients using your own billing system, LedesAssist also allows you to easily and quickly review all the automatically applied UTBMS billing codes and make any changes you want.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: Learns from your prior edits and corrected entries. It also becomes more and more accurate as you use it thanks to our AI and machine learning technology.
LedesAssist works with many online billing and law practice management software, like ActionStep, Clio, PracticePanther, and RocketMatter.
It also works with many self-hosted or locally installed systems, like TimeSlips.
We also offer integration services. If you use a proprietary or other non-standard billing system, please contact us at or info@EffortlessLegal.com, and ask for LedesAssist integration.
LedesAssist works at rocket speed!
It automatically codes time and expense entries as you enter them. It works completely behind the scenes, with nothing for you to do at all!
You can also use it to automatically add UTBMS billing codes to pre-entered time entries. Using this feature, you can code an entire month's worth of time entries for dozens of attorneys and paralegals in a matter of minutes.
EffortlessLegal takes security seriously.
Like most quality online systems, all of your data with our app is encrypted both “in transit" and “at rest."
In other words, all transmissions to and from the LedesAssist service, and all items stored in the LedesAssist system, are all encrypted using at least 256-bit SSL certificates, providing strong “bank-grade" security.
As an additional security measure, our systems are regularly checked and certified by security experts who specialize in high-risk industries like banking and financial services. Contact us if you would like a copy of the latest report.

EffortlessLegal places user experience above all else. We incorporate extensive user testing and feedback into all of our products.
LedesAssist was tested for several years in live law firms before release!
We allow you to add Local Counsel users to your account for no extra charge.
You can also assign only specific matters to your Local Counsel, in order that they see only what they need.
This allows you to easily and quickly get your Local Counsel's time entries and expenses entered into your billing system.
And all of their time and expense entries will be automatically UTBMS-coded, just like yours!
