Tracking and billing time is a crucial and inescapable part of managing a law office. Yet the task is neither fun nor glamorous. After all, when was the last time you saw a TV or movie lawyer calculating billable hours?
Legal professionals need to consistently and accurately track and bill time in six-, 10- or 15-minute increments, depending on office policy and client directives. Without reliable time and billing records, clients can’t be invoiced and work goes unpaid. This fact makes accurate timekeeping essential to law office success.
