Can I Change the Client Number That's Used in Matter Numbering?


  • Edit the "Client Number" that gets pulled in as a field for Matter Numbering


  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:

"Client Number" is different than the "Client Reference Number" that is used on Invoices and in LEDES Billing.

Every contact is assigned a unique number and in ascending order. If you delete a contact, it will still hold that number's place and new contact's numbers will continue to ascend.


No, this number cannot be changed. It is based on the order that the contacts were entered into Clio.
