What is a "Client ID" Error in LEDES

Common Errors

  • The Client ID is missing
  • Client ID doesn't match
  • LEDES file is missing a Client Matter Number.


This is a unique but arbitrary number created by Clio and assigned to each Contact. This can be changed from the Edit Contact screen, under the LEDES Client ID field. The default value can be seen in the URL for that Contact (ie/ I have a Contact named Roy Harper. The URL of his Contact Card is so his ID is 910215171 unless a new value is added in the LEDES Client ID field)
