How much can Alexsei save my firm/practice?

Alexsei saves you time by doing the research for you. If you choose, you can pass along the cost of using Alexsei to your clients. With Alexsei, you’ll spend less time doing research and more time doing billable work like providing opinions, refining arguments, drafting, negotiating, and litigating.
