At a major law firm in the midwest, we interviewed three paralegals on how they handled case reports on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Their firm relied on the paralegals to collect data from multiple sources, their firm’s 10-year-old case management system and a mountain of emails, then assemble the reports in Excel. Here is what we learned:
- Paralegal 1 compiled a daily report, which took her 1–2 hours each workday (22 hours/month).
- Paralegal 2 handled a weekly report, which took her 6 hours each week (24 hours/month).
- Paralegal 3 put together a monthly report, which took her 3–4 hours each month.
All together, these multi-step reporting processes demanded 49 hours a month. Assembling the same reports on GrowPath would take a single click of the mouse. That’s a lot of saved time—and a lot less headache for your paralegals.
