Case Management Materials

Case management tools can vary greatly from one law firm to another. These are the simple tools that we’ve found helpful in our practices, and which we notice a lot of other lawyers making use of as well.


  • Casemap – Case organizing software from Lexis/Nexis that allows comprehensive sorting, filtering and tagging of case facts, issues and documents.
  • TextMap – Deposition management software from Lexis/Nexis that allows easy organization of depositions, and ability to quickly send sourced testimony to Casemap.
  • Timemap – Timeline creation software from Lexis/Nexis that allows quick output from Casemap to create visual timelines.
  • BeeDocs Timeline 3D – Mac based software for creating stunning 3D timelines
  • MindManager – mindmapping software from Mindjet. The software is pricey, but it’s powerful and once you start using it you’ll appreciate having that power.
