TimeNet Law will save you money. We guarantee it or your money back. Entering time/expenses is quick and easy. On billing day, we eliminate the friction of spending hours double-checking client files, producing invoices, applying payments from retainers, printing and/or emailing the invoices, and marking the clients "billed".
With TimeNet Law's Automatic Bookkeeper and One-Click Billing, this tedious task is fully automated, and takes just a few minutes. So you can get back to your billable work.
- TimeNet Law is fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 through 10.11 (El Capitan). Some features require 10.6 or newer.

Adding a Client in TimeNet Law
Unlimited TimekeepersYou can have as many timekeepers in the system as you need. Each timekeeper can have an unlimited number of billing rates with custom labels, an ID, a position, and be either Active or Inactive.

Task Timer & Time RoundingTimeNet Law's built-in timer is very smart. It can automatically shut off if the computer goes idle, it can be controlled right from the menubar (TimeNet Law doesn't even have to be visible), and Smart Rounding automatically rounds your time every time the timer is paused, but reverts back to the actual time when you resume the timer.

Conflict of Interest ChecksEach client and matter in TimeNet Law can have a list of neutral, conflicting or associated parties. When adding clients to the system, TimeNet Law always checks to be sure no conflicts exist.
Easily override false positive conflicts by marking them False or Waived, so you'll only be notified when a legitimate conflict exists.
TimeNet Law's Conflict Report
Address Book IntegrationQuickly and easily add contacts from your address book. It's a snap to always keep your Mac, TimeNet Law and your iPhone synced.
Create Beautiful InvoicesWith the click of a button, turn your matters of time and expenses into beautiful, consistent invoices. Invoices can be automatically e-mailed directly to clients.
One Click BillingIf you have hundreds of matters to invoice, doing them one at a time would be a nightmare. TimeNet Law's bulk invoice creation allows you to invoice all work in progress with the click of a button. Set date filters to only invoice work in progress from a specific month, and even filter by timekeeper and slip type.
Creating Invoices in Bulk
In addition to creating bulk invoices with one click, you can also create bulk statements of all outstanding invoices and a full balance due, on one clean sheet for your clients.
Customizable Invoice LayoutTimeNet Law's invoices are highly customizable. Show only the information you want, use your firm's logo, add custom headers and footers, configure to work with almost any window envelope and more.
Password ProtectionLock your entire database with a password, or just protect certain matters with a password.
Currency SupportIf you are working for a client that uses a different currency than you, simply set that client's currency. TimeNet Law will show you everything in your currency, and print invoices and reports in that client's currency, even performing the amount conversion on the fly.
Personal AssistantTimeNet Law's Personal Assistant will help keep you focused. Quickly set a reminder that will alert you either in a set number of minutes, or at a specific time of day. Once the reminder is set, forget it and get back to work. Your Personal Assistant will remind you when the time is right.
Setting Reminders With the Personal Assistant
Lightening Fast Data EntryEfficiency is incredibly important, and TimeNet Law has been built specifically with that in mind. There are keyboard shortcuts everywhere for power users. Intelligent date fields let you type things like "today", or "tomorrow", and common date ranges can be set with the click of a button.
Quick Entry presets let you create a list of common tasks to quickly select from when adding slips to matters.
Text Substitutions let you define abbreviations that will auto-complete. For example, you could type "pcw" and TimeNet Law would enter it as "Phone Call With".
Keep Your Clients Up-to-Date with One Click
Payment ApplicationApply payments to invoices in any way you'd like. You can deposit them to a fund first and transfer them as you bill, apply them to all invoices, oldest invoices, individual invoices, etc. Track everything about the payment - type, details, who the payment came from and more.
Applying Payments in TimeNet Law
Client- and Matter-Level AccountsTimeNet Law gives you three accounts for each client at the client level and three separate accounts for each matter:
- Trust Fund Account lets you deposit and apply funds to the client or matter trust fund.
- Escrow Account lets you deposit and apply funds to the client or matter escrow fund.
- Unapplied Credits lets you deposit and apply funds to the client or matter general retainer fund.
Ledgers and Payment HistoryTimeNet Law keeps track of your complete payment history: deposits, withdrawals, transfers, applications, everything. Include Ledgers on invoices or use the Credit History* and Ledger History* Reports for even more detail (*Reporting Module Required).
Automatic BookkeeperThe Automatic Bookkeeper will automatically apply funds from your client's retainer to the balance of an invoice. Automatic Bookkeeper settings are configured globally, but can also be customized for each client. The Automatic Bookkeeper can run manually with the click of a button, or it can run automatically on each invoice as it is created. When used in conjunction with bulk invoice generation, Automatic Bookkeeper can shave hours off of time previously spent billing clients.

Control Center Module
Full User Permission SettingsTimeNet Law Control Center allows you to give each user within TimeNet Law their own password and permission settings. You can create and edit presets to quickly set many users to a permission set. Even copy and paste one user to another for faster configuration.
Each user has client-level permissions. You can set any client in the system to No Access (that client will be completely invisible in the system to that user) or Read Only (matters can be opened but not saved).
Each user also has report-level permissions. Lock a user out of all reports, only allow access to specific reports, and lock access to the date range function.
Full Auditing SystemTimeNet Law Control Center keeps a log of all things done in the system: items created, items modified, items deleted. Each time a change is made in the system, this change is logged to the Auditing System. You can see exactly what was created/deleted/changed, when the change occurred and who made the change.
Task Code Module
Billing in Standardized FormatTask Code billing allows you to select your tasks and expenses from pre-defined lists, using the Uniform Task Based Management System (UTBMS). This reduces user input error and allows for compatibility with Electronic Billing services.
