Efficient Billing and Accounting for Small Firms


You may not even like to hear the word accounting; but efficient, accurate accounting is essential to the success of your practice. In this seminar, we'll explain your legal-specific accounting options, why accounting software is important to your practice, and the inadequacies of generic accounting software like QuickBooks. Many lawyers either use software for billing only or use one program for billing and another for the rest of the accounting function which do not share information. If either circumstance describes your firm, we’ll also discuss why it’s imperative that you use software for your entire accounting function and how to avoid using two programs when you only need one.

We already use practice management software but the Affinity presentations are always very informative. Also learned more about the free services provided through the TBA for practice management.

I thought it was going to break down the reasons why, or methods of how to conduct efficient billing. It was really to sell law firm database software.
