Being a lawyer isn’t only about practicing the law—you must take time away from your clients to focus on administrative tasks and business operations like properly storing documents, scheduling meetings, and being accessible all day (and for many lawyers, that means all night as well). A legal practice management solution can help with that.
You also have to comply with time-consuming reporting, such as performing monthly trust account reconciliations for your bar association. Just as important, all lawyers have to find the time to make sure they actually get paid. For many, this means a lot of time completing timesheets, calculating bills, tracking payments, and the like. (A legal practice management solution can also help with that.)
Not a single one of these actions qualifies as ‘legal work,’ but every law firm needs to complete them if it wants to be successful. The challenge then is managing your practice in a way that doesn’t interfere with practicing law.
Recent technological advancements have seen Legal Practice Management solutions evolve into hubs for firm management that combine client information, time tracking, billing, document management, and calendaring software under one roof to simplify the practice of practice management.
