Timekeeping for lawyers is essential for tracking billable hours. There are three main factors at play when it comes to time tracking for attorneys.
Keeping an accurate record of your time will save you a lot of headaches down the road. The increments you record in will largely be up to how you and/or the firm your work for decides to breakdown billable hours. (Typically, every 6 minutes or tenth of an hour.) Whether recorded in minutes or decimals, meticulous records are vital.
Time-keeping for attorneys means detailed notes about each time entry. These are essential for your personal records, and these notes will only help you in the event of a billing dispute.
Make sure your clients’ information stays protected when you’re tracking the time you spend on them.
Whether your firm is you, or you and 100 others-accurate, detailed, and confidential time tracking is essential.
