Attorney Invoice Template

An attorney invoice template is an official document issued by an attorney or secretary for the purpose of collecting payment for billable hours spent providing legal services to a client. The invoice contains both the law office and client’s contact information and specifies the due date that the full invoice amount is to be paid by. Sending clients an invoice helps with record keeping and improves the likelihood that clients pay on time.
