Billing is one of the most critical aspects of running a law office, but it’s something that many lawyers ignore until it’s too late. Invoices get delayed by months; clients disappear into the wind instead of paying what they owe. Some things will always be out of your control, but you can absolutely minimize your risk of nonpayment— and reduce administrative stress — by automating your billing and properly managing your trust accounts.

Billing should no longer be the laborious task that it was of yesteryear. Technology now exists to make life easier, with more of an eye on compliance with your state bar. From basic strategies to utilizing billing automation with the aid of technology, this CLE is meant to take your practice to the next level.

Join attorney Jordan Turk as she takes you through her most effective billing strategies, including tips on what to do when you have way too much aged receivables on your books. All hope is not lost on getting paid from these clients!

In this free CLE webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How to automate your billing processes to make your billing run like clockwork
  • The most common ethical issues with billing practices, and how to avoid them
  • Proper trust account management and reporting, specifically addressing three-way trust account reconciliation
  • Strategies for obtaining payment from nonpaying clients, including templates to help you along the way
