Practice Management: Zola Suite and CosmoLex?

Any Zola Suite or CosmoLex users out there? We're looking at the various systems, and these are two we're investigating. We'll have around 12 users to start, and we are a 100% Mac OS office. Just curious if anyone has any first hand experience with either of these systems. Thanks.


  • Both services offer free 30-day trials so poke around a bit and see which one (if either) you like. While Zola Suite looks snazzier, I found CosmoLex far more intuitive to use. My needs may be probably more limited than yours though, as I am a solo and needed something primarily for just timekeeping/billing and accounting.

    Do you have specific questions? Both are very good, both are fairly new, and they are each different. @brendo is absolutely right that the only way to know for sure which will work better for you is to try them.

    My recommendation is to get the free trials at the same time and run an entire matter through both systems at the same time, with your staff. That way you'll experience all the little (but potentially annoying) things you might miss when you just click around for a while. I'd even consider paying for a few months of each so you can run a client through both of them from beginning to end. It's a small price to pay to make sure you end up with the best fit for your firm.

  • Thanks, @brendo and @samglover. We certainly plan to try out several, including some of the more "established" systems. But, since these two are relatively new, I was curious to see if anyone had some first hand experience (not many reviews for either of them that I've run across).
