Each law firm must evaluate what is most important based on their individual needs.  Billing and accounting software is one of the most critical components for any law firm. Proper accounting and recording of all fees and costs that are billed and collected directly impact the earnings of a law firm. Choosing the best solution can be overwhelming for lawyers.  Understanding the benefits of different potential solutions and comparing the benefits to the firms needs will make the selection process easier.
