Secure client communication doesn’t have to be complicated. Law firms in New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts can now have secure correspondences, without the need for arduous encryption. Forgo the stress of encryption with our legal client portal.

In LEAP, LawConnect, a secure client portal, allows attorneys to eschew time-consuming encryption. With this legal client portal, you can have peace of mind that all your client information is secure and safe, without the laborious process of encryption.

A secure client portal offers a better way for you to exchange documents securely and quickly with your clients, without the hassle of encryption.
"In my divorce practice, some of my clients are still living together and using the same computer. The value of LawConnect is that they can create their own password, have their own account, and continue to share the computer with their partner, without giving away confidential information. LEAP’s legal client portal is designed to facilitate security and confidentiality."- Cassandra T. Savoy, Esq.
