The Firm:

Reiner, Simpson, Slaughter & Wood
Reiner & Slaughter is a nationally recognized law firm located in Redding, California. The firm is a team of highly skilled personal injury and collision lawyers which bring over 60 years of combined legal experience to help clients throughout Northern California and the nation. The firm has achieved a peer reviewed listing as Pre-eminent Law Firm by Martindale Hubbell. More recently, Russ Reiner was recognized for his dedication to clients by being nominated for the distinction of Consumer Attorney of the Year for all of California. Two of our lawyers have been recognized in Northern California Super Lawyers.
The Challenge: 
Having used AbacusLaw successfully for over 15 years, Reiner, Simpson, Slaughter & Wood found themselves with a growing caseload and workforce. To meet the increased demands they needed help from Abacus to gain efficiencies and re-evaluate their workflows to take advantage of the numerous enhancements in AbacusLaw 2015.
The Solution: 
Immediately after upgrading to AbacusLaw 2015, the firm saw measured results. “AbacusLaw 2015 facilitates greater collaboration for our office,” said Linda Scoubes, Legal Secretary. “With employees who work remote, the ability to link all emails to the client file makes it easy for anyone in our office to know the current status of a case to address client inquiries.” The new Outlook-like calendar, coupled with enhanced reporting capabilities, has helped to further streamline their scheduling and ensures that everyone knows where they need to be, when. “The calendar rules are just phenomenal,” continued Linda. “When we schedule a trial, all deadlines and events are automatically calendared for us. I can easily print and email the calendar to the attorneys in the format that works best for them. The calendar rules ensure that everyone in our office does this in a uniform, consistent manner, helping to avoid any unintended errors.”
