Both clients and lawyers increasingly want flat rate legal services. AltFee helps me analyze my services and price flat rate projects intelligently and quickly.  AltFee also helps me track my matters to create a constant feedback loop that lets me increase my revenue and decrease my administrative burden. It has quickly become one of the most essential components of my practice management software. To top it all off, the AltFee team has provided the best onboarding and support I have experienced.

As part of the management team, what I love is being able to provide a level of organization and support around pricing for the staff, especially for our junior lawyers and paralegals. Having the resources available in AltFee to price a project and then collaborate so we are learning each time creates a level of confidence with pricing that we didn’t have before. Systems and efficiencies are priorities for the firm, and this achieves both.

​​AltFee allows you to manage clients’ expectations throughout a project. By providing a clear scope of work and fixed fees, clients understand the scope of the project and the costs. It eliminates those difficult conversations around time-cost and efficiency so that the team can focus on the important issues and provide effective solutions.

AltFee is an important tool for my family law practice. One of our core values is cost transparency, and AltFee is critical when we scope out a project for a client. It is especially useful for services like Separation Agreements, Desk Order Divorces, and Cohabitation Agreements. I often recommend AltFee to my colleagues who are looking to transition into alternative fee models as it provides different approaches to suit a variety of practice areas and legal services.
