Lawyers Professional Liability - Time Management


Time management is important for Attorneys and one of the most difficult tasks in a busy law practice. Many attorneys are reluctant to consider developing a time management plan.

This is why DRA can assist with time management, security of knowing your firm is insured and the overall bottom line.

At, DRA we have found: Attorneys who implement a time management program and utilize DRA services into their law practices spend more time completing tasks, accomplishing other goals and doing what they enjoy. No more hassle of completing applications or shopping for insurance, please allow Dealey Renton & Associates go to work for you. . .

Essential tips are:

1. Clear Weekly Tasks and Case Priorities  

Stop procrastinating, debating or providing reasons for unfinished work. Set aside a time, morning, etc. to complete those difficult tasks and just do what you dread the most. When the unpleasant task is no longer looming overhead, everything else suddenly becomes much easier.

2. Avoid the telephone

Nothing breaks a lawyer's concentration on a case more than telephone calls to discuss other cases or consultation calls.

Ask any lawyer when he or she is most productive, and the unanimous response will be, “they get the most done 3:00 a.m., when working at night or on the weekends”. What makes the difference? The lack of interruptions, which come primarily from a constantly ringing telephones or interruptions.

Lawyers require blocks of uninterrupted time to be their most productive. Schedule certain hours of the day for returning phone calls or appointments and devote the rest of the day to work. While there are certain calls that have to be taken when they come in, the majority of phone calls are matters that could be handled by secretaries or office staff.

3. Make  a prioritized to-do list at the end of each day.

Making a list of everything to be completed is easy, however, taking the time to figure out in what order takes a little more time. Taking fifteen minutes at the end of each day to prioritize the next day's work can be a huge time-saver.

Decide the day before what task should be completed with most difficult first.  Ask yourself, "If I accomplish one task on my to-do list, what do I want to complete?  "Try these basic principles of time management and your productivity will improve.  Do not hesitate to call Dealey Renton & Associates, Veronica Wilson to start your New Year stress-free and in the right direction.
