CHICAGO, Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Smokeball, the software company for small law firms, is partnering with Community Activism Law Alliance (CALA), a Chicago-based nonprofit working to solve the serious lack of accessible legal aid in disadvantaged communities. As part of this collaboration, Smokeball will provide free software licenses and specialized training to all CALA staff. With Smokeball, CALA's legal staff will be able to work more efficiently and assist more members of disadvantaged communities.
Smokeball's cloud-based case management software and CALA's need to work from within the community creates a unique opportunity for a partnership that will benefit those who need pro bono legal services. Legal staff working for CALA will now be able to collaborate with ease, wherever they are, as well as create court forms and manage emails faster.
"All our staff, interns, and volunteers are incredibly excited to start using Smokeball," said Lam Nguyen Ho, founder and executive director of CALA. "Since CALA's community activism model means we have no 'office space' and all our work is done in the communities we serve, we need technology that will let us quickly and efficiently access our files wherever we happen to be, especially documents and emails. We're really looking forward to taking advantage of all the different functions that Smokeball has to fully integrate everything we need for each client file into one conveniently accessible location."
"We're thrilled to announce this partnership and the beginning of our Smokeball for Legal Clinics & Pro Bono Attorneys program," said Chelsey Lambert, Vice President of Marketing & Communications at Smokeball. "We know that legal aid offices and pro bono attorneys are some of the hardest working legal professionals out there and want to do everything we can to offer our support."
