As more and more attorneys work independently and in small firms, they're spending up to half their time on non-billable work like back office management, getting paid, and bringing in new business. Not helping people or finding solutions. Instead they're doing tasks that were previously not thought of as legal work. No wonder some lawyers are so unhappy.
Headnote believes that more efficient and effective legal processes - such as invoicing, billing, client intake and case referral - means less time on administration and more time providing good counsel to those in need. If attorneys can focus on practicing law instead of the tedium that comes with running a business, it results in better legal counsel for all of us. That's what we call a win-win.
That’s why Headnote was born and why we exist - to help attorneys focus on the important tasks and remember why they became lawyers in the first place (law school isn't cheap after all). We're dedicated to making tools that help attorneys and the entire legal industry work smarter, faster and harder.
