HoudiniEsq Law Practice Management Software Downloads

New Install

You may download and try HoudinIEsq 2.0 on-premise for 30 days. You may purchase a 2.0 Solo license for just $240 per user per annum or a multi-seat license anytime. No need to download any software, just purchase the licenses you need.

2.0 Upgrade

You must have HoudiniEsq on-premise or greater to upgrade. Please verify that the login screen of your current instance does in fact reflect this version before proceeding with the 2.0 update. Older updates here


Pay attention to what the installer is telling you and WRITE DOWN the USER NAME and PASSWORDS. Please do not call support or sales and ask for your passwords, we do not have them. Simply use all the defaults. When the login screen appears in your browser bookmark it. These simple steps will insure a quick 5 minute no hassle install.


You will be asked to register once you login. Please wait for a license to arrive via Email. Each registration and license file combination is unique to each install. If you reinstall or move HoudiniEsq to another machine you will get a license error since HoudiniEsq binds itself to the physical hardware. In this case you will have to re-register. The old license will no longer work.


If you have data you want to keep in HoudiniEsq STOP! Do not uninstall. Doing so will erase your data. To uninstall after backing up your data, simply delete the HoudiniESQ folder then remove the HoudiniEsq service. More info on removing the HoudiniEsq is located here for each OS Howto Uninstall HoudiniEsq

What will I need? You do not need an expensive server. Any computer you can pickup from BestBuy for around $300-$400 bucks will do very nicely. Keep in mind that all your data, emails, email attachments and documents will be stored on this machine so a large hard drive (500GB+) is very important. You should also invest in an external hard drive just to perform routine backups of the HoudiniEsq install folder (1TB+). All your data will reside on the host computer regardless if you access HoudiniEsq locally or remotely. Please note, although you will be using a Web Browser you are NOT going over the internet when connecting locally although you will be using a web browser to interact with the product’s user interface.


Best thing to hit practice management
The way HoudiniEsq runs on the iPad is phenomenal. I would say the price of the iPad is justified even if you just use it for the HoudiniEsq App. It will pay for itself. I walk into court with just my iPad now.
