Then it seamlessly integrates with evolveVoucher. evolveVoucher will upload your data into the Criminal Justice Act electronic billing system in minutes, saving you time & frustration.
I’ve started using EvolveVoucher for billing my CJA cases and it’s been an enormous time-saver.
I make all of time and expense entries in my office’s billing system for all of my cases. For CJA matters I used to cut-and-paste between my billing system and the court’s CJA evoucher webpage. Using EvolveVoucher has entirely eliminated the time-consuming task of making the same entries twice, and then double-checking for errors and mistakes. Now, with a few keystrokes, I can create my CJA vouchers directly from my office’s billing system. What used to take almost a full day now takes minutes.
For a small firm doing CJA work, this is invaluable. It seamlessly integrates with our practice management software and eliminates the headache, frustration, and tedium of CJA billing. The design and interface are elegantly simple and highly functional, and the per-voucher fee is well worth the time and money saved—and earned. After using evolve Voucher, doing it the old way would be like going back to dial-up internet access.
It’s so easy…
Evolve Voucher is easy to start using and has saved me dozens of hours. Entering data, from all of my employees, into eVouchers was frustrating and time-consuming. I would put it off until I absolutely had to bill, finding the time in evenings and weekends.
Using Evolve has changed all of that. Even a lengthy bill is uploaded in a matter of minutes, and it all happens in the background without any effort. Now that I can bill more often, my company has a more reliable stream of income allowing me to better manage my financials.
After years of using the same billing protocols my assistant and I were hesitant to change our methods. However, being afraid of change should never stop you from learning new skills and trying new technology. After adding our activity codes in Clio consistently, when we uploaded the data, we realized how much time would be saved. The setup that seemed daunting at first (matching activity codes like a decoder ring) took only a couple of minutes on the first bill, and on the second bill it remembered those matches and my bill was entered into the system in minutes, error-free, and more importantly, frustration-free. We will never look back at our old methods.
As a sole practitioner with no support staff, my time is at a premium. Every minute spent on administrative tasks I look at as a minute I’d rather spend on billable time or relaxing in my backyard. I joined the CJA Panel in 2016, and quickly found that filling out vouchers was the single biggest time drain on my practice. The average eVoucher would take me 3-4 hours to complete, painstakingly re-creating each invoice entry one at a time. Unfortunately for me, it was a few years before I discovered evolveVoucher. Spending $20 per voucher is a no-brainer, as it saves me multiple hours that I can put towards billable work. It access eVoucher through a secure portal, without keeping your data, so it’s safe to use too. I cannot recommend this product highly enough.
As a solo practitioner CJA panel attorney, evolveVoucher has transformed my life and my sanity. As someone on the older side of the technology spectrum, it took me a couple of vouchers to get the hang of things. But once I did, it was effortless.
We all know how antiquated eVoucher is and how much time we consume with billing - the one task we're not compensated for. The additional hours I'm able to devote to compensated work because of the evolveVoucher program is unquantifiable.
evolveVoucher is user friendly and well worth the money. Think about it this way: even if it only takes you an hour to do one CJA20 voucher, that's an hour you could be working an billing $152 while spending only $20.00
