Outsourced Accounting for Lawyers and Law Firms

Owning a law firm demands a significant amount of your time. You undoubtedly have more pressing matters than organizing your financial statements or monitoring your books. When you partner with Lescault & Walderman, enjoy the luxury of accruing more billable hours and scaling your law firm and less time worrying about your financial data. Our law firm accounting services are designed to automate your bookkeeping capabilities, manage your IOLTA accounting, and provide analytical insight to reduce overhead and increase profits.

Law Firm Bookkeeping Services


Offload your firm’s day-to-day legal bookkeeping needs so you can focus on what really matters.

Ensure Trust/IOLTA Compliance


Monitor and manage Trust/IOLTA accounts and client trust liabilities to meet strict state bar regulations.

Boost Productivity with KPIs


Leverage key metrics to track individual attorney performance & assess partner compensation (e.g. managing vs. originating partner).

Stop wasting time and money with inefficient systems

  • Is your current legal bookkeeping system efficiently tracking expenses and managing your hourly billing?
  • Do you meet Trust/IOLTA accounts compliance standards and fiduciary responsibility?
  • Would you benefit from part-time controller or CFO services that help you analyze and identify benchmarks to monitor associate performance, partner compensation, and client profitability?

When you utilize manual processes and disconnected software, you risk compliance issues, missed billing opportunities, lost profit, and waste your valuable time.
It doesn’t have to be this way.

Insightful Reporting

Our law firm outgrew our PT employee. We needed a fast, responsive bookkeeper. When it comes to our record-keeping, the handling of our Trust account was and continues to be most important. Now that we work with Lescault and Walderman, they are responsive to our needs.

We found Lescault & Walderman while setting up our new law firm. As lawyers, we didn’t want to focus on the day-to-day of our firm’s accounting. Lescault & Walderman is the backbone of our accounting team. They check-in with us weekly or more, and they maintain and upgrade our financial systems as our firm continues to grow. They always give us good folks to work with; we enjoy working with them.
