“I was impressed by Fastcase 7 when I saw a preview of it a year ago and this beta release confirms my initial impression. Current users will be glad to know that this new version does not discard any of the functionality that was already available in Fastcase. Rather, it enhances that functionality in several respects — most notably with universal search — and does it through a faster, more intuitive interface that puts all the key resources and tools right in front of you.” – Robert Ambrogi, LawSites, July 9, 2015.

“The most cited ‘best new feature or function’ added to an information resource in 2014 was the collaboration between Fastcase and Heinonline. Fastcase although not quite a start up is still a relatively young, still edgy newcomer to the legal information market. They offer low cost access to primary law using an innovative search algorithm and offering visual displays of search results. [ . . . ] [S]ince cases and academic materials have a perfectly symbiotic relationship, one feeds off and informs the other, Hein and Fastcase deliver a low cost suite of core research materials.” – Dewey B Strategic, March 22, 2015.

“From large-firm librarian after large-firm librarian, I heard the same thing: Fastcase is now a key part of their legal-research line-up. (Not to slight Casemaker, but it was Fastcase I heard mentioned most often.) Now part of the mix is Fastcase . . . and these larger firms are encouraging associates to use them for routine case law and statutory research. These services, once seen as rebels, have joined the establishment. And that’s a good thing for the market overall, because it is driving cost reductions and product enhancements.” Bob Ambrogi, LawSites 12/31/2014
