Looking for attorney time tracking/invoice generating software.
October 13, 2016 10:28 AM   Subscribe

Right now all time tracking and invoice generating is done by hand. This will not do. I think eBillity would work, but looking for other suggestions - specifics within.

- It would just be me and one attorney who would need access, with the additional purchase of maybe two users tops

- It would need to be accessible from offsite

- It would need to be accessible from PC and Mac

- iOS/Android would be nice but not essential

- taking credit card payments online would be nice but is not essential

- it would not need to be integrated into any other accounting software

- most importantly, it needs to generate customizable paper invoices that can be sent by regular mail. Programs that only track time won't work.

Small law firm partner/founder here. We use Timeslips which has a cloud product as well. It's not cheap and it's also not very good. But it does everything you listed.

I think Clio would do most of these things (credit card payments may require an add-on). It may be a bigger platform than you are looking for though as it does a lot more than time tracking and generating invoices.

My wife's firm uses Timeslips, which does everything you seek. I've done some consulting with other law firms and it appears to be the most common solution used by a pretty wide margin. I've seen some people use QuickBooks, but they almost always hate it. The ABA has a list of lawyer specific software solutions on their website as well.

I think Freshbooks would do all this.

Tabs3. Platinum works in the cloud. Lots of flexibility with invoices. Integrated credit card processing if you want. The trust accounting add on is also great.

Timeslips doesn't work for Mac, unless you use Bootcamp or something to run windows on your mac.

We use Juris from Lexis. Seems to be fairly flexible.

FreeAgent will do this.

Seconding FreshBooks. Been using it for years and it does all you need and more.
