“BriefCatch is an innovative tool that blows its competitors out of the water—it is a must-have piece of software for any lawyer, law student, or judge.”
“I cannot say enough good things about BriefCatch. Not only is it easily the most reasonably priced tool in the legal space, it is easily the most useful add-on available. It is the rare piece of software that reflects a thoughtful and complete focus on its user in every line of code.”
“BriefCatch is like having a second set of eyes built into your computer. And because it explains its suggestions, you’ll soon find yourself preemptively correcting things like passive voice or flat verbs before you even run a program. Far and away the most useful software for legal writing I have ever used.”

For experienced lawyers and judges, it's a thoughtful copy editor, challenging you to reconsider flowery words and convoluted sentences. For everyone, it's an eagle-eyed proofreader, spotting typos and other gremlins you're likely to miss.”

“BriefCatch is an intuitive and useful tool. Its scores are easy to digest and its feedback helped me improve writing that had already passed through several rounds of my own edits.”
