Before working with Borbala, I was just flying by the seat of my pants and simply working month to month with no set financial goals and without a realistic picture of what it cost to run my law firm. After working with Borbala for a few short months, I now have a yearly budget in place and a realistic picture of what I need to earn each month and each year to reach my financial goals. It also helped me determine what fees I should be charging since now I know what it costs to run my firm. I highly recommend working with Borbala so you can have a clear vision of where you are in order to meet your financial goals.
Before working with Borbala, I was blind when it came to understanding what all the numbers meant. Sure I understood the importance of income and expenses, but Borbala has opened my eyes so that I can see and understand what the numbers mean in relation to how the law firm is doing.
Within the first few months we had a budget that Borbala helped develop. During our monthly phone calls we go over all the numbers so that I can understand what is going well with my firm and what needs attention. Borbala is always available with any questions and responses are timely and thorough. Borbala is very knowledgeable, competent, and an excellent teacher. None of my questions are “stupid”. Our firm hired her almost 2 years ago, and she has seen our law firm grow and is aware of our challenges we face. Currently we are in the middle of changing from the traditional hourly billing to a flat fee based billing system. This has made several significant changes to our bookkeeping policies and procedures.
Borbala has been unfailingly supportive and enthusiastic of this change. Borbala’s services have helped build the law firm. Borbala has been a great asset to our firm and we are grateful for her guidance and expertise. I would recommend her services to any law firm needing more training on how to run a business effectively (this is course that law schools should offer but don’t). I believe Borbala loves working with entrepreneurs because she is one. Borbala has helped our firm to change direction, resulting in a firm that is on solid footing and moving in the right direction.
Before working with Borbala, I was completely lost about how to measure the financial health of our company. I stepped into the CFO role out of necessity and had very little experience with accounting practices or book keeping. My husband and I took over a family law practice that while having huge potential needed a complete financial overhaul.
Borbala was just the person to help me through this transition and to help me create a clear picture of business. She was always patient, kind and very responsive! Any time I had a question for her, she was able to help me and to break it down into layman’s terms. We had a big mess to clean up and she never made me feel judged or uncomfortable. She was always positive and able to offer concrete suggestions and solutions to our problems.
Within three months of working with Borbala, we had a completely different outlook on the health of our company and we were able to measure our successes in all the important financial categories. She was able to help us clear up the confusion and to put metrics in place to measure our success and to keep us honest and accountable moving forward.
Now we’re able to see a clearer picture of our financial health and make course corrections when necessary. She helped take the fear out of the financials.
I highly recommend working with Borbala because she is amazing and a pleasure to work with! She will never judge your financial situation, she will only help you to make things better and help you take your business to the next level!
