Proper Billing Practices That Reduce Bar Complaints [LGE 011]

Apr 24, 2018 | Podcast

What are some proper billing practices that can help reduce the potential for bar complaints against you? In this episode, I share several best practices when it comes to billing clients for work performed.

What I Cover In this Episode:

  • Make sure what’s reflected in your retainer agreement is also reflected in your billing practices
  • Bill early and bill often
  • Why you should describe the work you’re performing even if you’re billing on a flat fee basis instead of hourly
  • Reconcile your trust account at least once a month
  • Should the bills you send out include some sort of update on the case?
  • What method of client communication will increase their chances of receiving and opening their bills?
  • Keep copies of the bills you send to the clients
