When Would I Use the Matter State Pending?


  • What is the purpose of a Pending Matter


  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:



Every Firm is unique and wouldn't necessarily use the Pending State. Examples of when a Law Firm may decide to use a Pending Matter:

  1. The law firm may decide to put the Matter in a Pending state because they haven't started working on the Matter yet. 
  2. The law firm opens a Matter and charges a consultation fee. The Matter will be placed in a pending state until the client pays the consultation fee.
