or standard Ledes Billing Codes. But these procedures often cause major problems for the firm.

We can help. We have vast experience with e-billing and task-based billing processes. These programs and services are often complicated and require skilled knowledge that most law firms lack, but our team of professionals can assist your firm with implementing a solid workflow process that will solve your electronic billing needs.
