A Mobile App for Lawyers to track their Budget and Schedule
Our Client is one of the most reputed US based Law firms that has been in this business for over two decades now. The firm employs around 40-50 permanent lawyers and has a large client base of 3000+ satisfied customers.
The client wanted a mobile app where the admin could login and assign cases to the lawyers working with the Client’s Law firm. Once the cases got assigned to the respective lawyers the app allows the lawyers to log in and update their expenses, time spent, charges and other information pertaining to the cases assigned to them.
We at Volga Infotech developed an mobile app for the client with the following features and functions.
This section allows the admin to log in to the app add the name of the Clients and give a brief description about their cases and assign the same to the lawyers.
This section allows the admin to login to the app and add new lawyers to the firm or make changes to the contact info of the existing ones.
Budget Details page that provides for maintaining leverage, resources, hours, billing rates, costs, and expenses. Also provides for various views into the scenario (by timekeeper, by phase, by task, by period, etc.)

The lawyers or the admin can login to the app and use this section to log the information related to time spent, charges or expenses on a particular case.
Invoices and Payments
This section allows the admin to generate the invoice at any given point during a case. It reflects the amount payable to the law firm by it’s clients.
The admin can choose to generate reports on daily, weekly or monthly basis depending upon his choice. The reports once generated can be sent to the Law firm’s clients notifying him about the amount he owes to the law firm.
The client was extremely satisfied with the site’s performance, navigation, user friendly presentation and the overall user experience.
