Let’s face it–getting paid is one of the more challenging parts of running your law firm. Practicing law can sometimes feel like the easy part; collecting money from clients can often seem to be a more challenging task.
One of the reasons for this is that billing effectively isn’t something we’re taught in law school. Instead, it’s something you end up figuring out as you go. This is unfortunate, but it doesn’t have to be this way. There are resources to help you figure out how to track your time and bill your clients more efficiently, thus ensuring that you’ll get paid on time.
For example, the latest chapter to our ebook, The Pocket Guide To Launching Your Law Firm, is a great place to start. This free chapter,”Let’s Talk Money,” written by lawyer Megan Zavieh, covers the ins and outs of invoicing, collecting, and managing your law firm’s money. In this chapter you’ll learn about setting up bank accounts for your firm, trust accounting basics, receiving credit card payments, and procedures to put in place to ensure that you get paid promptly.
