What Is a Legal Invoice?

A Legal Invoice is issued to a customer detailing any provided legal services. This invoice for legal services would be given by the legal representative (such as a lawyer) who keeps track of the hours spent working on a particular case when representing their client.

The invoice should contain information concerning all services that were provided to the customer. This detailed, broken-down list will make the customer less likely to question it and express their dissatisfaction. This is because everything is clearly written down and calculated which means that the paying customer knows exactly what services they have received and what specifically they are paying for. By producing invoices, the legal professional ensures that they (in most cases) will be paid promptly, and if there are any delayed payments, the legal professional can easily track them down and chase them up thanks to the invoice.

What Makes an Invoice Legal?

The only thing that makes an invoice legal is the structure and components of the invoice. These Legal Invoice requirements must be followed carefully otherwise they could be classed as invalid. Invoices could be a useful document if there is a dispute with a client or in situations when a client has refused payment. By producing this invoice, you have a greater chance of winning a legal battle. However, if the invoice you produce in court is not formed correctly, it will be discarded. For this reason, we have compiled a list of our top things to include in an invoice:

  • The name of the legal professional offering legal help to the individual along with their personal details. These details can include their full name, a working address, the name of the company as well as their telephone number;
  • Provide details about the customer including their name and contact details (including telephone number and mailing address for correspondence);
  • Input a detailed list of all provided services and a short description of each along with the time spent and costs associated for each service;
  • Include the overall subtotal that needs to be paid and the accepted methods of payment, not forgetting to include the deadline date for making the payment which also needs to be reflected in the document;
  • The document should be signed and dated by both parties.
