ASKED AND ANSWERED
What are the costs associated with ClientPay® online payment processing?
You can use ClientPay® independently of Juris or take advantage of the upcoming integration at no additional Juris cost. You will also not pay anything to ClientPay® unless you use the service. The fees, which are typically the lowest available are taken from transactions. We recommend contacting ClientPay® to discuss a customized pricing plan.
I use Windows Server and/or SQL Server® 2018 and see that you are ending support. What are my options?
We strongly recommend that you upgrade your infrastructure. Those platforms are no longer supported by Microsoft®, which means there is no help available and no security patches are being issued. You are exposing your firm to security threats and downtime. Our support team will help you migrate Juris to a newer server and database. We also recommend that you upgrade your Juris software.
Juris Suite Collections
In today’s legal environment, many firms have limited staff, are working remotely, and are watching cash flow carefully. So, it’s essential to track and collect all payments as easily and efficiently as possible—especially payments that are overdue. Juris Suite Collections makes it possible to:
- Streamline your collections process
- View outstanding payments quickly
- Identify payment bottlenecks
- Automate your workflow
We’re very happy to see that more and more people are choosing to work remotely. There is nothing more important than staying safe and keeping healthy. But that doesn’t mean your business has to stop or become more complicated. To help with this transition, the Juris team has put together an infographic, “Your Juris Work-From-Home Checklist”—great for working from the office, at home, or on the go.
Read our blog post, “Your Essential Guide to Working from Home with Juris,” for more tips and details to keep in mind.

New Juris Go timekeeping and management features
Edit Submitted Entries
Before: Once a draft was submitted from Juris Go to Juris Suite, it could only be edited from Juris Suite.
After: Timekeepers can edit time entries from their devices, drastically cutting the review cycle and giving support staff an idea of what’s in the pipeline.
Designate Time as Nonbillable
Before: All time submitted from Juris Suite is marked as billable, regardless of the default matter status.
After: Timekeepers can set a time entry status to nonbillable; if a matter is set as nonbillable, the time entry will default to the same.
Filter by Billable Status
Before: The My Time list showed all time entries, and it was impossible to exclude billable or nonbillable entries.
After: Timekeepers can filter by billable and nonbillable status to view specific types of entries.
Calendar Summary View
Before: The Calendar Heat Map that allowed timekeepers to manage their work was available in Juris Suite only.
After: Timekeepers can use the time summary screen to get a quick view into their productivity for the month.
Multiple Company Support
Before: Firms with multiple companies were not able to use Juris Go across their organizations.
After: Firms are able to use Juris Go features across all companies and offices.
Improved Time Entry UI
Before: The My Time list was simple but cluttered and it was hard to spot key data.
After: Now, each entry appears as a card; time and client details are easier to view, improving the overall user experience.
Increased Local Draft Limit
Before: Timekeepers could only store 25 local drafts on their mobile device.
After: Timekeepers can store up to 100 local drafts, making it easier to save multiple drafts and bulk submit later.
Removed Lookup List Limitation
Before: When looking up clients, matters, and codes, timekeepers could only load 100 items.
After: Timekeepers can load entire lists, making it easier to browse and search.
