EffortlessLegal’s EffortlessIntake automates your intake process!


We make interviewing new clients effortless. Potential new clients can sign up directly from your website, or can be sent a direct invite link.


EffortlessIntake comes with several ready-to-use intake forms, or you can customize your own.


Our application automates preliminary conflict checks while integrating seamlessly with Clio. You can facilitate everything in one place – no more interview scheduling, client travel and rescheduling issues, paperwork, or data entry to get new clients set up in your system.
