What’s New? This release provides an enhancement for the retrieval of contact information from MatterLink to LegalBar documents, in addition to a short list of bug fixes.


We would like to introduce you (or re-introduce you) to our old friend, LUCI.

LegalBar's LUCI




LUCI’s name means Look Up Contact Information. For a long time, LUCI has been responsible for pulling contact information into correspondence documents. She retrieves contact names and addresses from Outlook/Exchange, MatterLink, or Interaction and drops them into LegalBar-generated letters, faxes, and memos.

She also “hangs out” on the Word ribbon, ready to drop contact information into any document.

In the latest release of LegalBar, 4.8.43, LUCI has figured out a way to “work smarter, not harder.”  When you need to pull a contact from a specific MatterLink matter, LUCI invites you to filter the matter list by All Matters, Recent Matters, or My Matters, right from the start.  (She used to ask about this a little later in the process. By providing the choice sooner, and by letting you save your personal default choice, she saves clicks and time.)

Just for fun, here is LUCI’s new motto, a quotation from her movie star namesake, Lucille Ball: “The more you do, the more you can do.”
