Houdini is a consistent reasonably priced solution. You know what it can do, it might not have all of the bells and whistles of other programs but it is priced competitively and it does what you need. They've been improving by adding more integrations with other softwares or services.

Great software for small law firms

Reviewed On
What do you like best?

The pricing, the ability to enter manual billing;

The fact that works both on Mac and PC.

This is the only firm management software I know that offers a free version for solo practitioners.

It is a great solution for small law firms or solo practitioners.

What do you dislike?

The "localhost" has to be restarted every time the browser is closed. Basically I have to go and end the application and then start the application again every time the browser is closed.

This software would not be my first choice when managing litigations as the interface is not designed for that.

I would also like a phone system integration (even if only with cell phone apps) allowing automated billing for phone conversations.

The software offers a really nice billing side, but integration with QuickBooks would offer a better value.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great options for the pricing they offer. If you are a solo practitioner, be sure to try the free version.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I believe the main problem it solves is the ability to track billing. The legal billing aspect of it is great. It allows for customized services and different billing rates, as well as flat-fee cases. It keeps track of billing and I have the ability to create estimates, bills and review the past due accounts or the balance in the trust account. I find the billing module of the software as being very useful in the firm's operations and activity.
