Frequently Asked Questions
From tracking billable hours to invoicing and accounting, many law firms still use tedious manual processes to manage daily administrative tasks or rely on a patchwork of separate software to handle the different parts of their legal workflows.
Lawyers need to find more time in the day (without inventing a time machine!)
The problem? Both approaches are inefficient, time-consuming, and a hassle for many attorneys, paralegals, legal assistants, and staff. Having a single, fully integrated practice management tool allows you to manage every facet of your law firm’s operations quickly & easily from within a single dashboard.
It also ensures that all your data is stored in the same place, so you can avoid errors from redundant double data entry -- and ensure that every member of your team stays on the same page.
When properly implemented, the right practice management system can help your firm:
- Make time & expense tracking easier – and more accurate
- Prepare & send invoices in less time
- Stay on top of high-priority& important deadlines with firm-wide & matter-specific calendars
- Keep your contacts & documents organized & accessible from anywhere (while still keeping your firm’s data secure)
- Manage legal matters & cases with customizable workflow tools
- Process credit card payments online without the risk of trust account compliance violations
- Keep client trust accounts replenished & reconcile accounts while ensuring Bar compliance
- Make more informed business decisions with in-depth reports & analytics dashboards
- & more
Best of all, it will allow you to do this all from within a single tool—and integrate with the other software tools you use every day.
There are dozens of generic, “industry-agnostic” practice management tools on the market. But these programs aren’t designed for legal industry workflows & regulations. In fact, Rocket Matter was first created back in 2006 to address the lack of software vendors serving the specific needs of a law practice.
Make legal-specific, law practice management software a priority for your law firm
If your firm is using a generic practice management software, you’ll end up spending far too much time & too many resources trying to customize generic workflows & processes to match the specific needs of your legal practice. A legal-specific practice management solution, like Rocket Matter, is be built from-the-ground-up to meet the unique demands of legal work.
With Rocket Matter you get access to a host of important legal-industry specific features, including:
- Fast & thorough conflict-of-interest checks
- “Court rules” calendaring functions to help you avoid missing key deadlines
- “Statute of Limitations” calculators
- Legal trust accounting tools
- LEDES billing features to help you avoid invoice rejection
Making compliance a priority for your law firm
Most importantly, the right legal software will feature key compliance protections to help your legal practice remain compliant with ABA and state bar rules.
For example, a legal practice management software should allow you to process online credit card payments -- while preventing the commingling of funds when withdrawing or depositing funds into a client’s trust account. It should also help your firm stay compliant when managing trust accounts & reconciling bank statements. Rocket Matter does all this & more.
When looking for the best law practice management system, law firms have two basic options: they can opt for an on-premises software, which is stored locally on your office hardware, or a Cloud-based system, which store’s your firm’s data in the Cloud so that it accessible to you from any location.
Traditionally, many law firms have favored on-site practice management software because it’s been seen as more secure & less vulnerable to attacks by hackers. However, an on-site software will only be accessible from the office and puts your firm at risk of data loss if you experience a hardware failure, power outage, or the software closes/crashes unexpectedly.
By contrast, a Cloud-based software solution will automatically back up your law practice data in the Cloud and can be accessed from any device, including mobile phones, allowing your attorneys & staff to coordinate on matters from remotely. You’ll also be able to track time & expenses while traveling or working from home, facilitating more accurate timekeeping & billing.
And while on-premises software may have been more secure in the past, today’s Cloud-based practice management systems come with high levels of data security (like those used by online banking) to help keep your firm’s confidential client & case information safe.
Rocket Matter’s law practice management software is designed to do just that—help you manage your practice more effectively.
We offer a whole suite of legal case management tools to help you organize matters, stay on top of deadlines, and free up more time for providing better client service. Firms using Rocket Matter enjoy access to powerful matter management features, including:
- Firm-wide & case-specific calendars to help you keep track of important deadlines & appointments
- Customizable matter templates to suit your firm’s unique workflows
- Matter dashboards & milestones to help you track the progress of a matter
- Customizable fields & matter tags for tighter matter management & client intake.
- Organized contact entries that let you view a client’s matter details at-a-glance
- Matter budgeting tools to help your firm stay profitable & facilitate fixed fee arrangements
- Kanban boards make case management easy by showing you the status of all your ongoing legal matters
- Comprehensive conflict-of-interest searches
All these features help your team work more efficiently, so you can spend less time on case management and more time serving your clients.
An attorney’s hours are their most precious resource—and the right legal practice management software can help optimize every minute of them (and make sure they’re actually billed).
If your lawyers are still recording their hours by hand at the end of the day, they’re almost certainly losing track of some of their billable time (and wasting valuable minutes piecing together & logging time entries).
Bill-As-You-Work to the rescue
With Rocket Matter’s Bill-As-You-Work™ Technology in place, your timekeepers can effortlessly track their hours (and their expenses) from anywhere in the software as they do their work. You can even set multiple timers at once, so you can move seamlessly between different tasks without missing a beat—or track time directly from Microsoft Outlook while using your email.
Batch billing, paperless prebilling, automated invoices, and all kinds of other goodies
And when it comes time to bill for those hours, Rocket Matter makes it a breeze to prepare and send your invoices. Using our powerful batch billing features, law firms can prepare all their monthly invoices at once and make adjustments from our paperless prebill screen. You can also schedule automated invoices for recurring payments, to be sent out at a set time every month.
In a word, yes!
Accepting online payments makes things more convenient for clients & helps your firm collect on invoices more quickly & consistently. And with Rocket Matter Pay, your firm can easily process credit card payments without the risk of processing fees causing trust account compliance violations. You can even store credit cards for automated payments each month.
There’s no way around it—law firms handle a lot of documents, and preparing legal documents manually takes a lot of time.
The document automation tools included in Rocket Matter law practice management software allow you to generate common legal documents from customizable templates, then automatically populate fields with information pulled from your central database. You’ll save hours upon hours of time spent tediously on document creation & reduce the risk of errors caused by manual data entry.
Rocket Matter’s document management tools can also help you keep legal files organized & accessible. By making it easy to digitize & manage your firm’s documents, Rocket Matter ensures that your team will be able to find the files they need quickly from anywhere—even if they’re doing their work from home or while traveling.
As an added bonus, your legal practice will also get access to secure file-sharing features & one-click e-signatures, which can be sent directly to clients with no need for a confusing client portal. And your clients can even store credit cards in Rocket Matter to set up automated monthly payments for retainers or other fee-arrangements.
Yes! It’s what our practice management software was designed for (plus, making your job a whole lot easier!)
In addition to boosting efficiency & streamlining billing to help you collect payments more quickly & consistently, Rocket Matter comes with a whole suite of in-depth reporting & analytics tools. Using our reporting & analytics features, law firms gain deep insight into their workflow efficiency, realization rates, revenue, profitability, and more—so they can make informed decisions for the future of their business.
Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) to support your growth
Our advanced analytics reports allow you to track the key performance indicators (KPIs) that matter most to your firm, including:
- Which team members are bringing in the most cases for your firm
- How much revenue each of your attorneys is bringing in
- Whether or not individual matters are staying within their budgets
- Billing & collections realizations rates
- User productivity for both lawyers & staff
Our Premier Tier also includes our Business Intelligence Module, designed to provide legal practices with the deepest possible understanding of their finances, productivity, profitability, and more.
Rocket Matter’s legal practice management software includes powerful legal trust accounting functionalities that help you manage client trust accounts while staying compliant.
With Rocket Matter, your law practice can:
- Create, manage, and transfer funds between multiple trust accounts for a single client
- Ensure trust accounting compliance even when accepting credit card payments
- Automatically generate replenishment requests when accounts fall below a certain threshold
- Reconcile your bank statements to stay in compliance with state trust account reconciliation requirements
And as for the rest of your firm’s accounting? Rocket Matter’s robust QuickBooks Online integration ensures your accounting tools & practice management software stay synced, keeping your financials current.
If your practice management software doesn’t integrate with your other software tools, you’ll lose time and efficiency by manually copying data between different software systems. There’s also an increased risk of mistakes & data entry errors since you’ll need to input each set of data multiple times.
At the very least, your law practice management system should integrate with:
- Email & scheduling tools (e.g., Outlook & Google Calendar)
- Document software (e.g., Office 365)
- Document sharing tools (e.g., Dropbox, Box, and ImagineShare)
- Your accounting system (e.g.,Quickbooks)
- Your client intake or CRM software
- Your legal research tools
At Rocket Matter, we’re all about making lawyers lives as easy as possible—that’s why we offer seamless integrations for all of the above and many more. Wondering whether we can integrate with a particular one of your software tools? Our experienced, U.S.-based support team will be happy to answer your questions.
