6-Step Plan for Increasing Paralegal Billable Hours

Do you want to increase your paralegal utilization rates and billable hours?

When a paralegal is struggling to meet their monthly or annual billable hour requirement, it’s not always effective to just say “bill more hours” or “find more work.”  With this course, we provide paralegals with the motivation AND the tools to increase their billable hours immediately.

Program Summary

This 60-minute program gives your paralegals a solid plan to be able to get more billable work right away.  The methods discussed in this popular program come from years of asking attorneys “how does a paralegal get the billable work off your desk and on to theirs?” and asking paralegals who consistently exceed their billable hour goals what it is that they are doing differently than others.

Program Highlights

  • One easy method to gain an additional 100-150 billable hours right away without doing any more work that you’re already doing
  • Attorney feedback on why they use one paralegal over another
  • What other paralegals are doing that allows them to consistently exceed annual billable hour quotas
  • The importance of planning for months when there are vacations and holidays
  • How to develop a solid plan to implement now

We also offer the full 5-hour Billable Hour Boot Camp course that includes how to draft time entries and increase paralegal productivity.  You can schedule all of the individual sessions as a series of monthly webinars presented to your entire team.
