Family Matter Tags

Smokeball allows you to create default matter-specific tags to further categorize and organize your matters. These tags appear across the top of the Matter window and on individual matters on the Smokeball home screen.

Family Law firms use matter tags in a variety of ways. You can set up different sets of matter tags to help further differentiate Pre-Decree, Post-Decree, Custody/Support/Visitation, etc.  Additionally, you can apply an unlimited amount of matter tags to organize your matters or run custom reports.
