"Lexis for Microsoft Office-- sold me on lexis"

What do you like best?

Lexis for Microsoft Office allows you to access Lexis content *(from forms to Shepard's, cases, statutes, etc) directly within almost ANY version of Office you are using... WONDERFUL! Easy access within easy access, it is just as simple as clicking a button in the MS ribbon & then you are given all options that you have within Lexis Nexis online. saves sooooo much time! Start and build documents, search for authorities, Shepard’s Citations Service check of citation formats, Create customizable Tables of Authorities, so much more than I have time to type

What do you dislike?

I didn't like the fact that they did not have a Mac version, but now they DO!! love this so much

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

Form & doc drafting & research are now done simultaneously as I can access content from Lexis Advance®, Lexis Practice Advisor® and Lexis® Search Advantage right from within the document I am working on or a blank doc. Shepard’s Citations Service also integrates & checks my cites as I write, and also makes sure citation formats are correct

I love how it cuts down time on things for you and makes it to where it’s so much easier. Not having to type out as much definitely is the best part!

The lexis advance feature wasn’t my favorite since I usually try to draft my own stuff out before I start it but not a big deal!

"Great for Drafting Legal Documents"

What do you like best?

You can Shepardize within the document and also create a customized table of authorities. This office simplifies drafting so you don't have to Shepardize separately or spend a lot of time on your table of authorities.

What do you dislike?

I don't like using the Lexis Advance feature while working within the document. Might be easier for some, but I prefer to do the research prior to writing and then drafting my document.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend some time learning to use the tools. Once you know how to use them, it really does cut down the time you spend drafting documents.

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

Lexis for Microsoft Office reduces the time spent on Shepardizing and creating your table of contents

The integration with Microsoft with office and using templates on SharePoint makes the tool very useful for collaboration on important cases/briefs.

"Hands down the best Lexis add-on I've seen."

What do you like best?

Saves so much time! You can Shepardize your motions right inside of Microsoft Word. You can convert an opposing party's pleading from a PDF into a word document and go straight to the authority. You can create tables of authorities in seconds, which used to take over an hour. Unbelievable time saver for the legal document drafter!

What do you dislike?

So far, Ohio is not a supported citation format, which is where I practice. For the most part there are not stylistic differences, but it would be nice to have all states' citations as options.

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

Saving so much time by doing tasks in minutes that used to take hours. The combination of Lexis and Microsoft Office allows for much quicker document drafting and research to motion completion.

"Great, but Westlaw loyal"

What do you like best?

Sherpardizing and that there is a tool for tracking the history visually. I think there are awesome secondary sources and I like when lexis remembers what I have looked at in the past in the history and predicts what I am looking at for when I type. I addmittedly use Lexis everyday for reward points. That makes things exciting.

What do you dislike?

I think that westlaw is easier to use. I feel like they're a little less commerical, but the porducts are very similar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very expensive!
