Can This Software Help You Bill More Hours?

Whether you run your own legal practice or are a partner or associate, you know how easily you can become bogged down keeping track of clients, projects, and billable vs. non-billable hours.

And for many attorneys, time management is a daily struggle.

How can you possibly make phone calls, respond to emails, log your expenses, meet with prospective clients, litigate, and still have enough time to actually do work?

More and more, time management software has begun to provide attorneys like you with better ideas for how to get it all done in less time… which can translate to earning more in less time.

However, there are many time management and project management solutions available today, and it can be difficult to know which to choose. Every online business management system seems to have its strengths and weaknesses, depending on the needs of the company or individual using it.
