The LAWS/Pro Management Reports

LAWS/Pro provides clear, concise, and simple reporting to help you manage your practice.

Virtually any information may be selected and reviewed on-line; dumped to a CSV file - which allows the data to be opened and massaged using an Excel type spreadsheet, or printed via a PDF report.
All information within LAWS/Pro may be selected and sorted by Attorney, Client, or Matter. The "Attorney" may be further defined by either:
Contributing Attorney: The actual attorney, or individual performing the service,
Billing Attorney: The attorney with overall responsibility for the matter,
Originating Attorney: If utilized, the attorney responsible for the establishment of the client's relationship with the firm. (The origination responsibility may be split amongst multiple attorneys, or modified based on an effective date.)
A Sampling of the reports available within LAWS/Pro consist of:
Time and Billing:
Calendar Reports: Allows individuals to inquire or print a recap of all work-in-process entered into LAWS/Pro during a day, or multi-day range, or to print a calendar of future scheduled events.
Work-In-Process Reports: Provides the ability to select, summarize, and review the firms work-in-process in virtually any manner desired.
Hours Worked Summary: Displays a single line per attorney summarizing daily and month-to-date totals of hours worked.
Accounts Receivable:
Aged A/R Reporting: Provides the ability to select, summarize, and age the outstanding balance due from clients.
A/R Inquiry: Allows users the ability to analyze and review A/R activity in any manner desired. For Example: the total due from clients may be summarized into a single line total by Contributing, Billing, or Originating attorney. Drill down capabilities allow the display of totals by client, matter, invoice, or the detail transactions within invoice. If desired, the user can display the actual work-in-process included on specific invoices. Users can select total life-to-date activity by client, or review only billings, receipts, or write ups/downs within a period. Any data selected can be printed or dumped to a CSV file.
Billing Journal: Selects and summarizes all client invoices generated within a date range, may be sorted and summarized as desired.
Cash Receipt Journal: Selects and summarizes all Cash Receipts received within a date range, may include a single, or all, cash accounts, and may be sorted and summarized as desired.
Cash Disbursements:
Cash Requirements Report: Lists by due date the outstanding vendor invoices in process for payment.
Check Register: Produces a summary of all checks produced by the firm within a user defined date range. The reports may be limited to specific cash accounts or vendors. The on-line inquiry feature allows the drill down capability to review the detail general ledger distribution associated with each check.

Realization: The Realization Report accumulates hours worked within a date range. It then analyses the percentage of these hours which have been invoiced, and then the percentage of the time which has been reimbursed by the client.
Attorney Budgeting:
The Attorney Budget program is designed to compare actual Timekeeper performance to predefined budget values yielding a variance between actual performance and the desired budgeted performance.
