Easy Soft’s Easy Trust software, and the software generates all the numbers for you. You don’t have to think about it, or figure out how to do it: you just have to remember to do it. With the click of your mouse, it’s there!
It’s not enough for your Attorney billing and trust accounting software to track retainer funds in trust accounts. You need trust bookkeeping safeguards, too.
It’s been proven: the more proactively reminder notices you send, the more likely you are to get paid. Good law firm billing software such as Easy Time Bill can automatically prepare batch reminder notices for all overdue invoices—and print them along with your choice of cover letter.
If that’s the case, things get far simpler. A trust accounting software like Easy Trust works in tandem with a legal time and billing software like Easy TimeBill. All of the above steps are automated, and/or easy to track.
In the last post, we talked about the necessity of keeping your trust accounts spic and span, and putting retainers into trust accounts until earned.
Sure, you’re smarter than the average Jamie…and your logic is, well, flawless. But in many ways, the law is just like other professions. You advise clients. You prepare forms and other documentation. Your brain is your biggest tool—followed by that smart paralegal you hired, and (let’s not forget!) your legal software. You bill hourly, and collect a retainer against your billing.
