Home > Legal Billing Software

All firms need legal billing software. We live in an era where you can send legal bills digitally and electronically. The need for post office and similar communication tools that you can use for sending legal bills is over. Nowadays, a good PDF software will help you send legal bills to any of your clients. No matter which industry you work in, you always need legal billing software. With that being said, let's take a look at some of the options you have for software tools.

Part 1 The Best Legal Billing Software

At this point, we would like to introduce you to Wondershare PDFelement, a superb software that you can use to edit, create, and print legal bills. Being one of the best PDF software tools on the market, it comes with a number of tools you can use. Here is what makes it the best billing software for lawyers:

  • Edit all PDF documents, and make your legal bills pop out with annotation features like highlights, comments, sticky notes and more
  • Convert any document, and transform it into in an editable and searchable legal bill PDF document
  • Protect your documents using top notch encryption and password protection. Furthermore, you can use redaction tool to remove sensitive data
  • And if you need to print your legal bills, it can help you modify the document to get the best size and dimensions for printing

Step 1: How to Edit Legal Bills

PDFelement allows you to edit text with ease. You can choose to edit an entire paragraph, or just one line. If you want to edit whole paragraph, use "Paragraph Mode". "Line Mode", on the other hand, allows you to edit just one line at a time.

For both modes, go to "Edit" and then "Edit Text". Click the text you want to edit, and then type new text. Clicking the text also allows you to change font, size, color, use bold and italic, and much more.

Step 2: How to Print Legal Bills

You can print a document after you finish reading or editing it. To print legal bills, go to "File", and then click on the "Print" button. You will be asked to specify printer, page range, print mode, page size, and some other options. After you've entered all the options, just click on "Print".

The software also allows you to print a portion of the page if you need it. Just click the "Crop" tool, select the area you want to print with your mouse, and then double click it. A new dialog window with settings will appear, click the "OK" button to crop, and then repeat the printing file process.
