A little bit about Paul W.

My Purpose: Law Firm Accounting & IOLTA Reconciliation Services, Practice Management System Implementations

I focus on law firm daily operations and provide a strong finance function for firms through accounting services.  Without a strong financial function, firm owners do not know what happened yesterday and certainly do not know where they are going tomorrow.   I establish streamlined processes by implementing practice management systems and other information system tools.  With the accounting and information systems in place, I am able to coach law firm owners on managing and growing their firm.

My accounting career started some twenty years ago when I used the family Apple IIc to start keeping books for the family business while in High School.  Everything I have done since then has been a combination of accounting and information technology.
