Types of Contacts


Contact Types

A Contact is any party added to Smokeball, whether associated directly with a given matter or synchronized from your firm contacts. Each time you add a person, entity, or trust to Smokeball, the details are saved to a contact card. Smokeball remembers all the details for future use.

Smokeball Contact Types:

  • Person – Choose if the contact is a human person.

  • Firm/Business/Organization – Choose if the contact is an entity, law office, solo attorney, etc. (other than a trust). Add owners, employees, or other individuals acting on its behalf to the contact card. You can also edit the legal role ("business role") under the contact card.

  • Trust – Choose if the entity is a Trust.
