processes

survival kits = peace of mind

give someone a fish, they eat for a day. teach someone how to fish, they can eat for the rest of their lives. every one of our turn-key survival kits are individually tailored to meet a firm's size and practice area needs. we streamline your workflows, clean up your procedures, and help you keep talented people.

management is mostly about processes. we simplify them into an accessible and easy to understand operations survival kittm. a personalized assessment will outline tasks, deadlines and procedures necessary to keep your practice running smoothly even when you’re not there.

task dissection

communicating who does what and when is one of the easiest and most important first steps in improving your firm. not sharing this information with staff and attorneys is a critical mistake. job descriptions and responsibilities that are clearly marked lead to more efficient roles in your firm and less repetition.

make sure you’re on the same page with those in your corner by reaching a consensus on shared goals, identifying qualitative and quantitative benchmarks, and deciding how to allocate the firm’s resources effectively. the 3a. law managementtm task dissection captures everything that needs to happen over the course of a year, organized by department, employee, and priority.

responsibilities and accountability

strategy + analytics = growth

we place significant focus on decreasing miscellaneous expenses so you can make better choices for you, your staff and clients. you must have a plan based in reality. by tracking your analytics through reports, you have a better grasp on reality and the road ahead. we're experts at strategy and analytics, and can help you become the same.

leadership is mostly about behavior. we teach you which reports to monitor and how to measure the success of your firm. your 3a. law managementtm action plan will include timetables for performance so you will know when it’s time to grow or when it’s time to make adjustments.

IT has a dead-stop direct effect on the bottom line if it breaks.

case management implementation

law + technology = efficiency

we teach you how to use technology to erase duplicative efforts and ensure a consistent client experience. we help firms fully integrate their case management and billing software by creating easy-to-follow processes.

almost every firm we encounter is not using case management software to its capacity. even worse, some do not even have a centralized database necessary to comply with bar guidelines or malpractice requirements. we help you bridge the gap in easy to follow phases to ensure peak productivity.

paperless law

yes, it is possible. in fact, we’ve been helping law firms be paperless since the 1990s. if your firm is still in the last century, we can help. having all your files easily accessible on your computer is extremely important, and you don’t want to be spending extra time making physical files when you don't need to be. paperless is more cost effective, eco friendly and a lot simpler when it comes to office organization.

if you've ever spent more than ten seconds looking for a document, you're doing it wrong. if you multiply your hourly rate times the time it takes you to find data, you'll quickly notice why more and more firms are going paperless.

IT audits

if you don’t know where to start or where you stand technologically, but feel you’re lagging behind, allow us to help. 3a. law managementtm will look into your computers, internet network, peripherals and software and audit its capacity. we then make recommendations based on your firm size, practice area and where you want to be. we know that rome wasn’t built in a day, that’s why we give our recommendations out based on critical issues that need to be addressed right away and things that you’ll want to implement in the future. we’ll also break down costs, coordinate product purchase and confirm with your onsite IT team if you have one.

whether it’s your social media footprint, web presence, or litigation skills, clients have a choice.

these areas ensure your firm is a viable option.

we analyze your marketing procedures and advise what processes to put in place so your firm doesn’t miss an opportunity.

web presence

own your identity. your firm and its reputation is out on the internet. it is up to you to get control of it and guarantee it reflects your brand. can your clients find you on the internet? if they find you, will what they see make them want to be your client? we can quarterback your marketing team or help you design your own presence.

referrals

leverage your resources. referrals from lawyers, trusted advisors and former clients are the best source of future clients. we identify your best income sources by your practice area and create an incoming and outgoing referral process. we introduce you to our network of lawyers across the country in every practice area so that you are getting the clients you want.

analytics

they say knowledge is power. you will only know what is working and what is not if you follow the analytics. your practice will inevitably ebb and flow, but the goal is to minimize the monthly shifts and control how it impacts your firm. predicting a slow month affords you to strategize on goals, save for months ahead or take a vacation. knowing when the busy cycle is for your firm helps you brace for it, prepare the attorneys and staff and secure a consistent, positive client experience and outcome.

we are your resource. we are your law firm gurus. we are your sounding board. lean on us.

whether it’s hourly or project based, we only charge you when we absolutely have to. we don’t bill for phone calls or emails so reach out any time if you need our advice.
