LOMAS Program Overview Form No. 0200509, Page 1 of 1 Law Office Management Assistance Service (LOMAS) Consultations Without effective office management, law offices frequently are run in chaotic work environments that breed lousy office morale and attitudes, mistake-prone work product, disgruntled clients, patience-destroying files that are either missing or disorganized, and higher than necessary overhead expenses due to inefficiencies. LOMAS conducts an honest review of the strengths and weaknesses of a law office with an eye toward recommending policies and procedures that will make the office run more efficiently and effectively. Each consultation is unique because some lawyers are willing to take the time to be totally involved in the process and some are not. The minimum time invested for the principals of the firm is about 45 minutes initially, followed by a summary review of results later in the day which may take about an hour. However, in every case the partner in charge sets the parameters of the consultation activities. Your consultant does not arrive with a pre-arranged checklist or audit; instead, during the initial interview with the principal(s) of the firm, an outline is created which includes what is working, what is not, what needs attention, what are the firm’s “sacred cows”, and so forth. Sometimes we are asked to "just take a look around and tell us what you think," and in other situations we may be asked to "review our trust account procedures and assure us that our established procedures will keep us in compliance." In short, problems are identified and addressed. Typical items for review include client intake procedures, mail procedures (i.e., receipt, distribution, etc.), accounting procedures, financial statements, billing and collections, personnel issues, marketing, employee evaluation, file construction and retention, telephone protocols, and technology implementation. A multitude of other varying issues also arise and are addressed in a comprehensive, competent manner. All consultations are confidential. Consultations are generally limited to one day (approximately five hours) and are priced depending upon the size of the firm and the scope of the project. The beginning threshold for a solo law firm is $2000 including travel. Written reports are optional and may incur an additional charge depending upon the size and scope of the project. We welcome the opportunity to serve you as described above.
