About

Built by expert tech professionals and personal injury attorneys, CloudLex® understands the needs of personal injury firms from end-to-end. For too long, we witnessed personal injury firms using generic software and out-of-date archival systems, adapting their processes to these systems. We have brought together a diverse group of highly accomplished, innovative individuals, all of whom are passionate about transforming the legal profession, to create CloudLex.

A holistic system designed to help lawyers manage daily operations and business processes within their practice, CloudLex is the only legal cloud software program your firm will need to build, manage, and grow your practice. It centralizes every aspect of casework from intakes to calendar management, to improve work efficiency and help firms increase their caseload and profitability.
