At ABA Techshow next week in Chicago, the cloud practice management platform MyCase is slated to debut a mobile app that will be a first for practice-management apps in that it will allow both clients and lawyers to access their case information. While other practice-management platforms have mobile apps allowing lawyers to access their case and client information, this would be the first that would include a separate portal for use by clients.

Reportedly, the app will include features that will allow clients to:

  • View information about their case.
  • Send and receive messages to and from the law firm.
  • See and respond to comments.

The app will also allow lawyers to access their matters within MyCase, send messages to clients, view contact and calendar information, and bill on the go.

I have not seen the app, which MyCase will officially debut during Techshow. The app will not be available for download until it has completed the iTunes store approval process.
