Before MasterFile size mattered when it come to litigation support software -- it was expensive, complex and needed IT staff to cobble together the systems you needed to get your work done: a document system for evidence, another for work-product, one for case analysis and one for transcripts. Synchronizing your work from the road or at home was frustrating.

"MasterFile is an incredibly well thought out and easy to use product ...
clearly written by a team who have a deeper understanding of
the very specific legal process required.
" -- Paul Ryan

MasterFile was designed from the ground up to level the playing field for small and solo practices. An affordable, state-of-the-art litigation support system, MasterFile combines self-managed e-discovery, advanced case analysis, a document and evidence repository and document management into one, easy to use system.

  • Self-managed e-discovery platform

    MasterFile's Load 'n Go E-Discovery Platform makes short work of
    e-discovery (a) rapid document loading in native format, (b) rapid cull-down of what's irrelevant so review time is slashed to what's responsive and (c) reviewing and extracting key evidence from the responsives.

    The bottom line: Dramatically more productive use of your time.

    Unique document repository

    MasterFile's unique document and evidence repository lets you organize all your evidence, transcripts and legal research material and instantly put your finger on any item, by author, date, document type, issue, etc. in a couple of mouse clicks.  Its "document centric" design lets you perform PDF or native review and productions or in traditional image formats.

"MasterFile touts, and reality demonstrates you can find
virtually any document within the collection with three keystrokes."
-- Richard S Demarest

    Each case file has its own secure MasterFile database. This becomes the central store for evidence, research, work-product, pleadings, e-mails, notes, facts and argument -- i.e the case "masterfile" where you turn to find everything related to it.
