The best software on the market!! Rather than follow the traditional, follow-the-form method of case prep, NextChapter charted a new and innovative course in bankruptcy case preparation. We've seen significant reductions in the time it takes to enter cases. The cloud service is instantaneous and seamless. I couldn't be happier with the quality and speed of customer service. I am a devoted fan and recommend it to any practitioner looking for a simple, yet sophisticated, case management system.

The staff at NC is outstanding - great customer service, quick responses, and very friendly. Much better than some other bankruptcy software providers. Highly recommended!

Ohio Bankruptcy Paralegal
I switched from a software based program to prepare bankruptcy petitions, to the internet based system offered by the folks at NextChapter. I really like it. The programing has been well thought out, and seems to be continually refined. A web based system essentially allows you to work on bankruptcy matters from any place that you can access a good internet connection, perhaps the client's home, your office, your home, or a good coffee shop. It is very worthy of your consideration.

We are very impressed with the program! It is user friendly and easy to navigate through. They are always updating new features in the program and make sure the customers are up to date on what is new with the program. I would highly recommend NextChapter to any firm, large or small!
