The General Client Ledger Report provides your law firm with a detailed overview of transactions that occur in your firm's operating account. This report is organized alphabetically by client name and includes information such as incoming and outgoing payments, transfers, and the cumulative balance of payments made by each client.

It is essential for monitoring the financial health of your legal business by summarizing day-to-day activities in the operating account over a specified period.

You can customize the report by applying various filters to refine the information displayed:

Select Client

Highlight the trust balance exclusively for the chosen client. This filter allows you to focus on the specific client's trust account and gain a clear understanding of their financial position.

Select Matter

Select Practice Area

Limit the trust balance summaries to clients with matters within the designated area. This filter lets you focus on clients in specific legal domains, providing targeted information on their trust account balances.

Group Results By
