Do you have a billable hour requirement?

We show you how to immediately increase your billable hours.

  • Increase your job security

    It's a cold, hard truth - the more money you make the firm, the more valuable you are to the firm.

  • Make more money

    If your bonus or raise depends on you hitting a billable hour target number, don't leave money on the table.

  • Save time on drafting

    We take the mystery out of drafting time entries that show the real value of the work you did.

Billable Hour Boot Camp

Taking the mystery out of billable hours

You've been told that you have to bill 1,800 hours per year to client files, but no one shows you HOW to do that. You're not alone. It's been like that for decades.

We're changing that.

With the Billable Hour Boot Camp's online course and coaching program, you will be able to 

  • easily increase your billable hours (even when work is slow!)
  • know how to draft time entries that show the real value of the work you did; and
  • be more productive than ever before.

Course was excellent, with many takeaways and no “fluff”! Practical, actionable changes were taught, all of which can be implemented immediately in my practice.

Increase Your Billable Hours

Billable Hour Coaching Program

Your billable hours are more important than you might think.

Your job security is directly linked to your billable hours.

Your bonus is directly linked to your billable hours.

The size of your raise is directly linked to your billable hours. 

Law firms also look at a timekeeper's billable hours to determine if the timekeeper has enough work to do.

And yet, it seems unfair because it feels like you have no control over the amount of billable work they give you.

What if we told you that you have more control than you might think?

The Billable Hour Boot Camp will show you things that you can do to increase your billable hours, some of which don't even involve you doing more billable work than you're already doing.




Billable Hour Boot Camp

Your course access includes several bonuses

  • Billable Hour Calculator

    You receive the Microsoft Excel file to download and use from your computer. This calculator allows you to plan how many actual work hours and billable hours are available every month after it factors in holidays, vacations, and other important numbers.

  • Live Coaching Calls

    We want to make sure you have the best year ever. Included with your course access, we will be hosting several live coaching calls throughout the year to answer all of your questions and support you throughout the year. And if you can't attend live, you can submit your question in advance and watch the recording when it's convenient for you.

  • More Calculators

    In addition to our Billable Hour Calculator, you will also receive downloadable Excel files to use to calculate and improve your daily productivity and utilization numbers. These are key indicators that your employers are looking at along with that billable hour number. You will be able to use them to make sure you are on track to increasing your billable hours.

This was a very informative class. The best part being you can come and go as necessary to complete the program. Ann was available via e-mail or for the q&a sessions - so you were never left hanging if you had questions or needed clarification. I work in solo practitioner office so my needs were quite a bit different than in a large firm, but she helped me think in ways that would help in my particular situation. Highly recommend!!!

Ann Pearson

Billable Hour Coach

If you're like me (and hundreds of thousands of other legal professionals), you go to work for a law firm and you’rebillable hour coach told that you have to bill X number of hours per year to client files, but no one tells you HOW to do that.

Even though…your bonus might depend on it.

Your raise might depend on it.

Your job security might depend on it.

It’s not fair. But I can tell you that you’re not alone.   In the 30 years that I’ve been in the legal industry, I have never met a legal professional who started at a new law firm and received comprehensive training on HOW to increase their billable hours or how to draft time entries. 

In the Billable Hour Boot Camp, Ann Pearson gives you real-world strategies to increase your billable hours, draft better time entries, and get more done in less time.
