  • With Best Authority, the firm's employees are virtually guaranteed a 100% accurate pagination regardless of how many times attorneys revise the document.
    Janet Rose, Technology Manager
    Poyner Spruill LLP

  • We love Best Authority because it is so fast, accurate and simple to use.
    Steve Marks, CIO
    Sills, Cummis & Gross

  • Best Authority allows us to meet our deadlines, and it ensures that our documents get out the door with last-minute changes to the TOA in an efficient and worry-free manner.
    Joseph Pinkney, Applications Specialist
    Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger LLP

  • I am a big fan of your product, having come from an environment where we had to mark every cite. A document that once would have taken me 2+ hours to mark, I can now do in 15 minutes.
    Heather Morrow, Senior Learning Coordinator/ Courseware Developer
    Loeb & Loeb LLP

  • Everyone loved the product from Day One. In fact, we recently migrated to Windows 7 and Office 2010 and many of the secretaries refused to migrate without Best Authority compatibility.
    Jennifer Potter & Linda Vega
    Fish & Richardson

  • It is a major relief to have a product that just works and we hear repeatedly how easy it is to use Best Authority and how reliable it is.
    John Green, CIO & Lisa Williams-Smith, Training Manager
    Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, PC

  • I think the program is fantastic. I never cease to be amazed at what a polished TOA it generates with just a few clicks.
    Bennett Cohen, Attorney at Law
    Polsinelli Shughart

  • I don't recall seeing a group of secretaries and word processors more excited than they were about Best Authority. ... The secretaries in the pilot sent out e-mails to non-pilot participants, offering to run TOAS for then using BA because it was "fun" to use.
    Matthew Fuller, Applications Manager
    Townsend and Townsend and Crew

  • The e-Learning tools are ideal if staff need a quick refresher ... It's a pleasure to train people on a product that works this well and has such potential to improve the workflow of putting out legal documents.
    Thomas Steele, Senior Technical Trainer
    Davis Wright Tremaine, LLP

  • Ultimately, we found three major benefits of Best Authority that have made it a great fit for our firm. First, it no longer takes several hours to create an automatically-inserted and accurate TOA. Second, the software is very flexible and can fit our workflow and editing process, particularly attorney's final retooling. Third, it is intuitive and user-friendly.
    Karen Tucker, Senior Legal Editor
    Steptoe & Johnson LLP

  • ... members of the firm are creating TOAs better and faster than before, meeting deadlines, ... accommodating our lawyers' personal preferences.
    Natalie Huha, Learning Services/User Support Manager
    Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP

  • Levit & James software support professionals are highly responsive and they actively pursue answers to any problems that arise.
    Eleanor Carbaugh, Application Support Specialist
    Duane Morris LLP

  • As a trial attorney, getting the court to actually read my motions can be a challenge. In less than 5 minutes, Best Authority makes ‘my’ motions stand out from the crowd. ... I highly recommend.
    William B. Briggs
    Ciummo & Associates; Modoc County Public Defenders

  • Best Authority 3 greatly enhances the end-user experience. ... The new look and feel to the Best Authority ribbon gives a seamless experience to the user. It is quicker to scan, easier to review and gives the option to preview exactly how the TOA will look one it is built inside of the document. Definitely a two thumbs up.
    Heather C. Morrow, Senior Learning Coordinator
    Loeb & Loeb LLP

  • BA3 is an amazing improvement. ... I can't say enough about the improvements in the Points and Authorities feature. The new split code automation is fantastic. In the past it was cumbersome and painful to have to reinsert the codes every time the table needed to be updated. Not having to reinsert the codes is by far the best improvement in this product. Great job on this upgrade!!!
    Valerie Pickel, Training and Applications Support Manager
    Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP

  • I love BA. The TOA is no longer a nightmare to complete; it’s actually a joy.
