We can work with you on a monthly or quarterly basis to maintain a client trust reconciliation and provide you with the financial reporting to stay informed of client balances. We can assist with client letters or followup that is needed for trust fund balances over 2 years old.

Business Administrative Services
We can provide your law firm with the expertise of a Chief Financial Officer:

  • Advanced financial reporting and analysis
  • Accounts Receivable and Payable Reporting, allow us to work with your customers and/or vendors
  • Quarterly meetings to review financial reports and assist with cost flow analysis
  • Payroll preparation and reporting for 1 to 5 employees
  • Assistance with Insurance renewals and general legal administrator responsibilities without the high cost of hiring an onsite Administrator for your firm

Payroll Services
R&D utilizes automated payroll software to prepare payroll for small to medium size law firms. All tax filings are done in a timely manner and up-to-date payroll reporting is available at all times - there is no need to wait for quarterly reports for information you may need to complete audits or budgeting. You should also be advised that all payroll taxes are paid and the funds are withdrawn from your account and paid directly to the Federal or State institution, unlike large payroll companies that withdraw your funds from your account to their account until the taxes are actually due. Our interest is keeping your money earning you interest until the date the funds are due. Our payroll services also include Direct Deposit, Delivery and Workers Comp pay as you go. We work closely with Hartford to allow us to setup Workers Comp pay as you go, you pay weekly as payroll is processed. We find that our rates are very competitive for "professional" payroll service. Our payroll services are safe and secure and we keep current with all new tax laws.
