smarter legal research with Casetext
“Price and features are excellent for most attorneys. I need excellent primary resource search tools, which is exactly what Casetext offers, and does it better, in my view compared to LexisNexis. The tutorial was also excellent, and showed me lots of cool features that I don’t recall having on LexisNexis.”

Case treatment flags — even more detailed

Small Firm
“It provides the clients with a lot less expensive method of our producing quality work to give to the judge who’s on their case. Not only is there no pass-through charge like we had with LexisNexis, but we charge by the hour. So the faster we work, the better it is for our client.”

Big Firm
“You will be able to collect your pension by the time you finish your LexisNexis search results. That’s why I use Casetext.”
Justin Infurna
The Infurna Law Firm
Judge
“In a perfect world, litigants would cite to all relevant case law in their briefs. In the real world, litigants often do not. Casetext can help judges and their clerks quickly find important case law that the parties may have overlooked.
