Small law firms are at the heart of our local communities, and are there for us at our most stressful times. They help us deal with difficult family issues like divorce and aging family members; they help us with exciting life opportunities like starting a business or buying a first home. Whatever it is, chances are it’s the most important thing happening in that person’s life at that time. For small law firms, it’s a hard job, a stressful job, and while they’re here for us, Smokeball is here for them. Our software empowers them to get their work done faster, work smarter, and track their time accurately so they get paid properly for the work they’re doing.
