Track Your Case Expenses

Regardless of how new your practice is, hiring a bookkeeper or at least getting expense tracking software is a crucial element of successful money management.

How Much to Spend on Cases

Before you begin to spend money on a case, make sure that you have a percentage of total value in place to ensure that the case is profitable. Properly evaluating the value of a case is the most important step in this process.

Consider a Line of Credit

It’s often important to maintain a certain level of capital to pay for things like payroll. Having an additional credit resource can go a long way to ensure that you’ll have funds when needed.

Don’t Invest Before You Know

Refrain from using funds towards a case until you’re certain that the appropriate value is there. There are certain cases that require funds to be accessed before that point, but waiting 30 days to properly examine the case is the best practice.

Evaluate Your Case Expenses

As you complete cases, go back and reevaluate your expenses and adjust as needed. Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket. While it may be exciting to take on a large case, if you don’t get the return you expect, you may end up out of practice before you know it.
