Attorney + Law Firm Clients:
Bookkeeping and controller services for your law firm
"Justice is truth in action."
While on the road or in the courtroom, attorneys and law firm staff must be able to manage every detail of their client cases. The financial aspects of running a law practice can be complicated and time-consuming. Attorneys need a specific focus on trust accounting to ensure they are compliant with Rule 1.15, reconciling trust bank accounts with attorney fund records, and monitoring business revenue and expenses versus budgeted plans.
Breakwater can take the financial management burden away from your law practice. For some firms, we provide monthly billing and account reconciliations. In other cases, we provide all online or traditional bookkeeping services in addition to controller/business management functions on a part-time, contracted basis. Breakwater’s services include payroll processing, bill payment, client invoicing, reconciliation of attorney practice management data versus financial data, financial transaction recording, bank account reconciliations, preparation of annual and long-term financial plans, monthly financial reporting and recommendations, and ad-hoc reporting needs. We can also provide client guardianship and forensic accounting services as needed for your clients.
