IT IS OUR BUSINESS TO KNOW YOUR BUSINESS.

It’s important to hire a bookkeeper who understands the impact the type of cases can have on your firm’s financials. Part of the complexity stems from management of IOLTA accounts and client billing. Another complex issue is in the integration of QuickBooks with other software your firm may be using. Since we specialize in working with law firms and have experience with managing financials across all practice areas, these complexities are not new to us.

Lucky for our clients, our team has years of bookkeeping experience working specifically with law firms to ensure the process is seamless. Below we break down some unique accounting requirements that can vary by these practice areas: Family Law, Estate Planning & Criminal Law, and Injury.

Family Law

Lawyers or attorneys that practice Family Law, often have an initial retainer and bill clients on an hourly basis. Fees are securely kept in trust accounts (IOLTA) and as hours are worked against the retainer these funds are moved into operating accounts. It can get a lot more complicated depending on the situation, but lucky for our clients MVO Resources has many years of experience managing trust accounts for law firms.

Estate Planning & Criminal Law

For the purpose of categorizing client financial management, we lump both Estate Planning and Criminal Law bookkeeping together because it can be more straight forward than other practice areas, although each firm will operate differently. Oftentimes there is some kind of payment plans that are managed through an accounts receivable department. Sometimes Estate Planning attorney’s break payments into two separate payments – half upon retaining services and the other when the work is complete.

Regardless of what billing operations your firm uses, MVO Resources is familiar with all the nuances that come with both Estate Planning & Criminal Law practice areas.

Injury Cases

When a firm receives a settlement from an Injury case, these funds go into a trust account. If the case involves mass tort, the settlement distribution becomes more complex. Even though this money belongs to the client, if there are liens or creditors trying to claim these funds, then someone will need to manage the negotiations with the creditors.

When these pieces are ironed out, a settlement statement is prepared. This statement includes any and all expenses, fees due to attorneys and amounts due to lien holders and creditors.

While it may sound simple, there are a lot of moving parts in preparing a settlement statement for an Injury case. Thankfully, MVO has the experience to ask the right questions and get the pertinent information so everyone is paid in a timely manner.
