6 Tips to Maximize Your Billable Hours
The life of a lawyer is not always glamorous, working long days to make sure their billable hours meet the expectations of their firm. The challenge, however, isn’t as much the billable hour as it is making the hours they work as efficient as possible.
There are only so many hours in a day. Job responsibilities that distract a lawyer from maximizing their billable hours are difficult to overcome.
But what if a lawyer could take 10-15 hours a week and turn them back into billable hours? Would that be a valuable contribution to the bottom line for every lawyer?
We have 6 ways that law firms could maximize their billable hours and they all relate to Ground Transportation. By following just a few of these tips will drive bottom line profits to every law firm.

Chauffeured Transportation – How it Maximizes Billable Hours
Outsourcing transportation services is an ideal way for law firms to maximize their billable hours. Here are 6 ways outsourcing transportation will dramatically increase those billable hours.
1. Chauffeured Transportation to Client Meetings
Lawyers spend a lot of time traveling back and forth to client meetings. While teleconferences have never been as popular as they are today to save time and money, nothing replaces the value of sitting in front of a client. Instead of losing valuable billable hours while sitting in traffic, have a chauffeured transportation vehicle handle the driving so you can stay connected to all of your clients.
2. Using Corporate Transportation Partners for Depositions and Hearings
Every lawyer knows that hearings and depositions routinely run longer than expected. However, driving around for 20 minutes looking for a parking spot and fighting traffic both ways is difficult to swallow. With a Corporate Transportation partner driving you, you can be dropped off and picked up right outside the courthouse, allowing you to quickly and efficiently catch back up on work or connect with clients.
3. Make More Money an Hour
If you could make $4 every time you spent $1, wouldn’t you try to spend as much money as possible? That is what Chauffeured Transportation does for a law firm. By paying $100 an hour to your Corporate Transportation partner so that your law firm employees can bill $250 to $550 an hour or more by working instead of driving, you are literally turning your transportation spend into bottom line profits.
4. Customized Work Stations
Some law firms have hat shuttles custom fitted to become a full mobile workstation, allowing entire teams to work seamlessly and efficiently. Imagine 5 or 6 attorneys all working while a Chauffeur at only $100-$150 an hour is driving your team from meeting to meeting. You might be billing 20 times the rate you are paying to your Corporate Transportation partner.
5. Is Winning New Business Important
Two competing attorneys showing up one hour apart to pitch a client. One rushes in, frazzled after spending a frantic 90 minutes fighting traffic, knowing his phone beeped 30 times on the way over with waiting emails he will not be responding to for hours. The second, driven by a Corporate Transportation company, has returned those same 30 emails, sat on two calls with clients, and arrives refreshed, prepared and ready to close.
6. Do You Care about your Brand
When you pull up for a client dinner, would you rather step out of a 2017 Cadillac XTS driven by a trained chauffeur or out of your own personal vehicle, chasing the kid’s sippy cup that fell out of the door? By leveraging a Chauffeured Transportation solution, you can arrive professional and ready to engage your client in a meaningful meeting.
Increase Billable Hours with Chauffeured Transportation
Efficiency is critical when trying to maximize your billable hours as a lawyer. By leveraging a key Corporate Transportation partner, you can ensure yourself and your team stays connected no matter the situation.
So when building out a transportation plan, consider Chauffeured Transportation as a part of that solution. It will not only improve service but will also improve your bottom line.
When it comes to ensuring your clients are satisfied, being available is critical in today’s competitive environment. You work hard to win those customers. Let a great Corporate Transportation partner help you keep them.
