The best way to increase revenue is to decrease staff time spent on administrative tasks such as billing, trust accounting or bookkeeping. By reducing staff time on administrative tasks, a law firm can make sure that staff spends more on the most important thing - providing billable services to clients. Legal Assistants, Paralegals, and Attorneys don't have the expertise or knowledge to efficiently and accurately bill clients and maintain the business' books. An expert on the subject can perform the same tasks in less time, increasing the firm's bottom line by reducing money spent on administrative tasks. Our company provides a broad range of back office services including legal billing, trust accounting, business bookkeeping, and payroll, that meet your firm's day-to-day business needs. We also provide consulting services on a project-by-project basis. We can train staff, help with bookkeeping catch-up or clean-up, and evaluate firm operations to identify areas of improvement and to reduce costs. If your firm is overwhelmed with back office tasks or if you need help with a specific project contact us today to speak with a knowledgeable bookkeeper.
Our company is based in Washington State, and we have the ability to serve, in-person, firms in Western Washington and in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. We prefer to provide services remotely whenever possible, however, because it reduces the costs associated with traveling to in-person client meetings, which in turn reduces the fees we charge our clients. By leveraging web-based meeting spaces, secure email, and cloud-based file sharing services we are able to serve law firms throughout the United States, as efficiently as we could provide if we were in the same building as our client.
Tasks such as month-end or year-end reconciliations or clean-up or catch-up data entry require a different level of expertise in a bookkeeper. It is best to avoid these situations by having a knowledgeable bookkeeper keep your books up-to-date and accurate. Clean-up and catch-up activities take more time and cost a firm more money than it would to pay an experienced bookkeeper to take care of the books from the outset. If your business and trust accounts are in disarray, we can help you to clean them up and ensure they remain accurate going forward by either maintaining your books for you or by training your staff on proper legal bookkeeping procedures. Contact us today to take the first step towards having up-to-date business and trust accounts.
