When setting up your matter, you have three options for Billing Method:

Hourly
  • The most commonly used billing method
  • Billing is based on time/expense cards entered and your timekeeper or task rate
  • You set up your timekeeper rates under Setup > Timekeeper section, and Your Task rates under Setup > List Items section > Task tab.

Fixed Fee
  • When Adding your matter, change the Billing Method to Fixed Fee, and enter the fee here


 
  • Time cards entered will be labeled as "Unbillable" (for internal tracking only)
  • When generating an invoice, total will consist of this fixed fee and any expense cards entered. 

Contingency
  • Once case is settled, here you can calculate your final price by entering the judgment and your percentage in the Add/Edit Matter window
