The Law Firm Matter ID is the LEDES assigned Matter code which is mapped from the Clio Matter Display Number. If you're receiving an error for the Law Firm Matter ID, you will have to ensure that your Clio Matter Display Number is linked in your LEDES Billing application. To do this, you will have to navigate into your Billing application and enter your Clio Matter Display Number in Firm Matter ID field when editing your Matter.
