Case Study: Wigoda Law Firm Finds 25 Extra Billable Hours/Month by Invoicing with LeanLaw


Wigoda Law Firm Finds 25 Extra Billable Hours/Month by Invoicing with LeanLaw

The Challenge

Wigoda & Wigoda was using such old software that it was no longer updated by the software company. They switched to practice management software, but abandoned the contract two months in. They realized they didn’t want all-in-one software. There were one or two good features and the rest were so-so. They only wanted to use the best software. They wanted a lean solution.

The Solution

Wigoda Law already used Quickbooks Online, so when they discovered LeanLaw — legal timekeeping, accounting, and reporting software – a premier legal app in the QBO app store — they appreciated the modern automation and integration. The workflow went from printing, scanning, and emailing each invoice to the client to sending invoices electronically. Not only does this save time, but also the human error associated with manual invoicing. They are also accepting retainer payments which had been unmanageable with their old software. Wigoda & Wigoda is accelerating their productivity and profitability by using LeanLaw.

“We didn’t want to load all of our data into a one-size-fits-all practice management software. We use only the software that we like and everything is dialed in to create a complete system that we have essentially customized. LeanLaw facilitated such an approach.”

Changing software is not something your law firm does lightly, nor do you want to do it often. It’s important to do your homework and understand your firm’s needs, analyze your choices, and put together a plan, including project management. That’s the best way to get to a new solution that helps your firm move forward.
