No cloud


Secure and cloud-less

The security of your data is extremely important. Your clients expect a high level of safety for their sensitive information. Information on the cloud is hackable and not safe.

Weekly news reports about websites being hacked should be enough to give anyone pause about putting their data on the cloud, let alone moving your client's data onto the cloud. Each of these companies would have claimed their sites were secure, prior to being proven wrong.

ProTempus operates on your local network, not the cloud, secure behind your firewall. Your data belongs to you. Keep it safe on your own computers. Our unique technology allows you and your staff access to the shared database without sharing it with the entire world. Our automatic, multi-generation, nightly backups allow you to save all your data to inexpensive USB drives that can be stored in a fireproof vault or taken off site. If disaster strikes, we can have you back up and running quickly. Multiple generation offline backups are the only 100 percent defense against ransomware.

Bigger is not better

You're small for a reason. You are able to provide customized solutions and personal attention, which your clients can not find with a larger firm. You can focus on client service, instead of big firm politics. You practice law the right way - Your Way.
ProTempus concentrates on small law firms. Our clients are small and so are we. We also like it that way. We can give clients quick, personal service and individual unique solutions. Every law firm is different and runs their office differently. We believe legal software should be flexible enough to work the way your small law office work. You should not have to change your office to match the way legal software works. We import your data from your current system, at no charge, then once we have trained you and your staff, you will use ProTempus with your data for 30 days, free. If ProTempus is not able to run Your Way, you will not owe us a penny. At the end of your 30 day trial with your data, if you love ProTempus you will begin paying our low monthly fee. We have no long term contracts, which is our motivation to keep you happy.

Secure remote access

You don't just work in your office. Like every attorney, you go to the courthouse, client offices and work from home at times. Remote access is not limited to cloud systems! The more the cloud system markets on the web, the bigger target it becomes for would-be hackers.
ProTempus provides four different ways to remotely access client information and bill your time. All are more secure than sharing a cloud-based system with thousands of other attorneys.
We will help you choose the one that works best for your office. ProTempus and your firewall keeps your system hidden from hackers; they can't hack what they cannot see.

Have it your way

Once you have linked the folder, one click from the client screen will take you to all of that client's documents. It is that simple.
Works with any word processor
Love MS word or are you a WordPerfect fan? ProTempus works with any Windows based word processing software.
Easily create forms
Convert any frequently used document into a ProTempus boilerplate form, which allows ProTempus to create that document for new clients, pulling their data from the database, with two clicks.
Automatically create folders
When you add a new client, ProTempus can automatically create a new folder on your network for that clients documents. Subfolders can be created to segregate documents for each case.
Go paperless
While paperless in a small law office may be unachievable, our scanner interface reduces the times you need to handle a paper document, which allows you to easily place scanned incoming documents into the correct client's folder, document folder on your network. Our scanner interface allows you to rename the document giving it to a descriptive name. ProTempus supports numerical filing, reducing time required to place incoming documents into the client's archives. The paper copy becomes no more than a physical backup. ProTempus supports "Less paper"!
User defined indexing
Create keyword indexes to quickly locate any document based on one or more keyword searches.
Link your physical filing system
Each case can be assigned a unique case file number, allowing you to link ProTempus to the physical file, which allows you to use numerical filing for your physical file.
Make emails part of the case
Emails are now an important part of any case. One click allows you to add case related emails to the client's document folder. Requires MS Outlook 2007 or better.
PDFs of invoices
When creating invoices, a PDF copy is automatically added to the client's document folder

How often do you read an email and think, I need to keep this? Just select the client, click on the email archive button and you just added it to the client's document folder. Accessible by anyone in the office that is also working on that case.
Need to email your client a document?
Select the document in ProTempus, click on the email button and ProTempus adds the document as an attachment to an email. Just complete the subject line and click send.
Email one or all your invoices
When creating monthly invoices, ProTempus tracks which clients have requested their invoices be emailed. Once the invoices have been created, a follow-up process emails those invoices.
Create unlimited case specific intake forms
Intake forms start with a simple text file with case-related questions--no complicated syntax to learn. Once your simple list of questions has been added, ProTempus will convert that text file into a password protected PDF form. You can email your client the PDF form, which they complete at home using Chrome or any PDF reader. Once completed, they can securely email it back to you, since it is password protected with their pre-assigned password.
Importing intakes
ProTempus can import the client's completed PDF form into the case file. This data is available to the ProTempus document assembly process to automatically create standard boilerplate documents for that case.
QuickBooks is not required
ProTempus contains a complete accounts receivables (AR) system. Many ProTempus users do not use QuickBooks.
QuickBooks Desktop Pro
If you wish to use our QuickBooks interface, it does require QuickBooks destop Pro 2017 or better.
We put the quick back into QuickBooks
We kept it simple. Only payments and deposits are synced into QuickBooks. When a client sends you a payment, the sync will post that payment as a deposit into your operations account in QuickBooks. If they send you a deposit for future work, ProTempus will automatically create a subaccount in your QB trust account. When you invoice that client and select to pay the invoice from the client's trust account, the sync software will withdraw that amount from the client's trust account and deposit it into your operations account.
Self auditing
When you run the ProTempus Trust accounts report, you have the option of running a QuickBooks - ProTempus self audit. ProTempus will retrieve the balance of each client’s account and compare it to their ProTempus balance, flagging any problem accounts.
Increase your billable time by 25 percent
Our clients tell us their billable hours increase by 25 percent or more, once the have switched to ProTempus. Why? Because we make it so easy to bill every minute. Plus, our green on the screen gives you instant feedback that you have remembered to check the billable checkbox, making it nearly impossible to forget to bill a phone call. No more pro bono over the phone.
Accurately track your time
Our stopwatch accurately tracks the time you work on each case, no more guesstimates that cheat you or your client.
Never miss another deadline
Our unique trigger date, allows you to decide how much notice you need ahead of any given task, to insure it is completed before the deadline. Once the trigger date arrives ProTempus displays the task on todays aggenda. No more last minute surprise.
Focus on today not the future
We all have thousands of things on our todo lists. However, only a few needs to be completed today. ProTempus only shows you the tasks that have a trigger date of today or uncompleted tasks from prior dates. It does not overwelm you with all of your tasks.

Tasks remain on your daily agenda until marked completed.

One click, will bill and complete a task
Clicking billable will auto complete the task and include it on the client's invoice. No more trying to remember to enter a completed tasks into the billing system. One click and it is billed!
Accumulate your time
Turning the stop watch on and off as you work on a given task allows you to accurately accumulate the total time you work on a task, regardless of the number of interuptions.
No time today!
Quickly reschedule that task to tomorrow or next week, by just changing the trigger date. Getting it off today's aggend, reducing stress by shrinking that mountain into a mole hill.
Accurately manage your trust accounts
From the first deposit to the final settlement, you and your client will know exactly how much money is in their trust account.
Evergreen accounts
You can define a mininum level to be maintained in a clients trust account. Once the trust account reaches that limit, ProTempus will freeze automatic payments, requiring the client to pay the invoice balance each month until the trust account is replenished, above the minimum limit.
Automatic or selectively pay invoices
Some firms use the auto pay feature allowing ProTempus to automatically pay each new invoice from the client's trust account. Others like more control and selectively pay invoices from the trust account.
Optional Quickbooks interface
If you use the optional QuickBooks interface, ProTempus will automatically create subaccounts in your QB trust account for each client. This makes it very easy to balance and audit each client's trust account. Our internal audit feature of the ProTempus trust report will compare the balance of each subaccount to the client's balance in the ProTempus deposit account, throwing a flag if the accounts ever dissagree.

Your 30 day free trial starts after we import your data (at no charge) and train you and your staff

ProTempus was the first legal software vendor to introduce subscription-based software or software as a service (SAAS), in 2003, long before cloud systems were ever created for small law offices. In the beginining, many attorneys rejected SAAS; if they could not "own" the software they were not interested, plus they thought our fees were expensive.

Today SAAS is the norm. We have not changed our fee since we started. Today, we are not the cheapest nor the most expensive. ProTempus is priced just right at a cost that is fair to our clients and insures our future. We provide you legal software, for your small law office, at an affordable price that allows us to continue providing great service and continued R&D to make ProTempus even better. Our business model, which has no long term contracts, is a Win-Win for us and our clients. As long as we keep you happy, you will continue using ProTempus. We are a team.

Like you, we are small company and privately owned. We can focus on great service and making great legal software without the worry of lining the pockets of a venture capitalist or shareholder, whose only real product is their profits.

Our low monthly fee includes unlimited support and training, free data import from your existing legal software and perpetual updates, and once again "No long term contracts."
