PRLog (Press Release) - Oct. 10, 2012 - Devil's Advocate, LLC, is the leading legal fee management and litigation consulting firm, since 1993. Our services include reviews (or "audits") of legal bills.
We can also, for example, test your legal billing software package to verify that it's catching important problems with your legal bills. Unfortunately, many law firms know how to circumvent routine legal bill software for managing legal fees -- you need a real review to see how you're doing.
Lots of legal bill software vendors are selling packages that are supposed to manage your legal fees, including promises that the software can outwit lawyers and "review" each bill with the touch of a button. These packages may be able to keep your bills organized and prevent basic mistakes -- like double payment of invoices -- if the firms comply voluntarily. But no software can keep up with inexperienced, inefficient, or greedy law firms or plain old sloppy timekeeping. For every software package and fee management shortcut, there are an array of techniques lawyers may use to circumvent the software, rendering it worthless as a management tool. Software vendors have little or no experience in the legal trenches.
Before you waste lots of time and money on a software package, consult with Devil's Advocate about the key features you need to look for, along with the holes in each program. We can also analyze your software's results to see how firms are evading your management efforts to help you patch the holes. In the event of a fee dispute, we can also provide our usual bill review and expert testimony services -- no software package can take the place of a real life expert.
