The attorney invoice template is to bill for legal work that is provided by an accredited individual allowed to practice law by the State’s specific BAR association. An attorney typically will bill a client of theirs by the number of hours (#) worked along with the hourly rate ($) that is charged. In most situations, a lawyer will ask for a “retainer”, this is an upfront payment when a client is going to be needing more than 20 hours of time. An attorney will usually submit this invoice to their client when the legal work is completed.

Begin by locating then selecting the button bearing the label “Adobe PDF.” Save it to your machine then open it with the PDF editing software you own.
2 – Supply The Billing Firm Or Attorney’s Information
The Attorney or Firm generating this Invoice will have to be clearly identified at the start. Several spaces have been reserved for this purpose. If this is an invoice for a firm, then delete the bracketed term “[Company Name]” and replace it with the legal name of the billing firm. If there is no Company Name you may delete this term and continue. Use the line labeled “Name” to fill in the Name of the Attorney who expects payment for his or her services. The Mailing Address of the Attorney or Firm sending this document should be supplied to the next three blank spaces. The “Street Address” should be filled out onto the second blank space, the “City, State, and Country” line will serve to continue this Address, and the “Zip Code” line serves to complete the requested information. To round out the Attorney’s Contact Information, we should document his or her Telephone Number and E-Mail Address. Supply these pieces of information on the lines labeled “Phone” and “E-Mail” (respectively).
3 – Deliver An Easy Method To Reference This Paperwork
The next area is defined by a slightly darkened box. Since the line after the terms “Invoice #” then supply the reference number assigned to this paperwork. You will need to also input the Invoice Date for this paperwork on the line after the label “Date.”
4 – The Client Should Be Documented
The Client who this invoice is being sent to should also be adequately documented in this document. This recipient will be responsible for submitting a payment for the work done by the Attorney. Utilize the labeled spaces below the words “Bill To” to report the Client’s Name and Mailing Address.
5 – The Attorney Services Provided To The Client Must Be Summarized
The Client will want to know what he or she is being billed for. Additionally, this entity will want information regarding the Attorney’s pay. Whether this information was provided at the start of the working relationship or new work has been done, it is a good idea to make sure this information is presented. A table with several columns has been provided to satisfy this requirement. You may report this information on one row or you may break it up by days worked or the type of work done.
Use the “Description” column to summarize the work the Attorney completed for the Client. The total “Hours” when the Attorney worked on the Client’s project should be furnished to the second column. Document the amount of money the Attorney charges for every hour of work in the column labeled “Hourly Rate.” Multiply the number you entered in “Hours” by the number reported in “Hourly Rate” then produce the result in the column labeled “Amount.”
6 – Complete This Paperwork With The Amount Owed And A Deadline
The label “Total” will require the sum of the “Amount” column furnished to the box next to it. The statement “Payment Is Due Within…” will act as a method to let the Client know how many days he or she has to pay this “Total” reported on this Invoice. Use the blank space in this statement to report the how many days from the receipt of this document may elapse before the Client will be considered late in his or her payment. Thus, for example, if the Client has five days after receiving this paperwork to pay the owed Amount before being considered delinquent, then enter the number “5.” Any additional Comments relevant to this Invoice may be included using the blank lines after “Comments Or Special Instructions.”

If the Firm has a specific logo you may place it in Cell A1. If not, you may leave it blank or use the generic logo.
Enter the Name of the Firm in Cell A2 (“Company Name”). If there is no such entity name, then delete the text in this cell.
Use the cells (A3 through A8) to furnish the billing Attorney/Firm’s Name, Mailing or Street Address, E-Mail Address, and Telephone Number.
Next, we will identify the paying Client. This is the recipient who will receive and pay the amount listed on this Invoice. Use Cells A11 through A14 (below the bold words “Bill To”) to document the Name and Mailing (or Physical) Address of the Client. Make sure to put each component of this entity’s Address in the appropriately labeled cell (“Name,” “Street Address,” “City, State, Country,” and “Zip Code”).
3 – Input This Document’s Reference Information Using the Columns On The Right
Notice the darkened cells on the right.

The Invoice Date will automatically generate under the word “Date” as the current Calendar Date. You may change this by inputting a different Date at your discretion or leave it as is.
4 – Define The Attorney Services This Invoice Is Concerned With
The table supplied beneath the above information will supply an area for us to detail the work that has been performed by the billing Attorney/Firm and the amount of money the Client must pay for that work. Summarize work done by the Attorney using the rows below “Description” in column A. The “Hours” the Attorney spent working on the project listed in Column A should be defined in Column B while his or her “Hourly Rate” should be presented in the next column. Note: The Amount the Client owes for the work reported in each row will automatically be generated in the “Amount” column. Similarly, the “Total” Amount of money the Client must pay will automatically populate the “Total” cell. Many would consider it wise to define how many days the Client has to pay this Invoice starting with the Calendar Date he or she received it. Enter this number of days in Cell A28, replacing the bracketed “[#]” with this number of days. Any additional Comments/Instructions may be presented in Cell A29 if necessary.
