You can’t go home again, Thomas Wolfe famously wrote. But legal tech news announced today suggests otherwise.

In an integration between two law practice products, Lawmatics, the legal CRM product founded by Matt Spiegel in 2017, now integrates with MyCase, the law practice management platform that Spiegel originally founded in 2009 and left in 2015.

“Both Lawmatics and MyCase represent innovative answers to different problems in case management and client intake,” said Spiegel, who is Lawmatics CEO. “This integration is especially meaningful to me because it connects the two companies I founded with the purpose of helping law firms leverage modern technology to run a more efficient practice.”

The integration allows all leads and contacts created within Lawmatics to be synchronized with MyCase, so that when a lead becomes a client, it reduces the time and keystrokes necessary to onboard the client.

The synchronization, which can be manual or automatic, includes all contacts, files, custom fields and notes from Lawmatics.

Not only does Lawmatics now integrate with MyCase, but with today’s announcement it becomes the only comprehensive legal CRM product to integrate with all of the leading practice management products, it says.

“This integration provides a unique solution for legal professionals who are seeking to enhance the lead management tools already available in MyCase,” said Dru Armstrong, CEO of MyCase and its parent company AffiniPay. “With this integration, key Lawmatics data seamlessly transfers to the MyCase platform, allowing our customers to easily manage cases from start to finish.”

Spiegel had been a criminal defense lawyer when, in 2009, he founded MyCase. In 2012, he sold MyCase to AppFolio, and then left in 2015. After starting a second software company in a different vertical, he returned to legal in 2017 to found Lawmatics.

The product offers legal client intake, CRM, marketing automation, billing, and other other features.
