Pros: cost vs benefit is higher than other products; the form of printing cases is easier; you get right to search and don't have multiple lawyers of extraneous bloat ware screen obfuscation

Cons: Support not as robust as other products; they have changed front end interface that does require re learning

Overall: I get to see cases without extra fluff, and get to them quickly

Very good product

Pros: My favorite part of this program, is that many sources are provided to Florida lawyers free of charge!

Cons: Unfortunately, there is no ability to Shepardize or otherwise confirm status of case. Also, if not careful, it is easy to go back to the wrong point in a search and overlook cases of import.

Overall: Free and easy search of caselaw and statutes.

Fastcase gives solo attorneys the best bang for the buck.

Pros: I like Fastcases' citation checker feature. The software gives clear case mapping, allowing the user to determine whether a case is still good law.

Cons: The statute look-up feature is a bit cumbersome. It takes multiple steps to find previous versions of statutes, rather than intuitively linking to the appropriate version.

The Ford Taurus of legal research. Not glamorous, but gets you to the same destination.

Pros: I honestly think this should be shown to law students, not Westaw or Lexis. It's a much more positive experience to start with this and work your way up to the features that make these other products worth the money (allegedly). I rarely find the need to compare results with the higher end engines, and when I do, rarely do I get the results I hoped for.

Cons: I wish the interface was more clean. Oftentimes you are missing easy hits because the suggested replacement terms is clueless.
