About Our Legal Bookkeeping Services

At Steph’s Books, we’re passionate about helping our clients achieve and maintain meticulous financial records. We offer a broad range of legal bookkeeping services backed by 25 years in the field, and we’re ready to take the administrative workload off your shoulders and save you time.


When you work with us, you can focus more on your passion and give your clients the attention they deserve. Outsourcing your law firm’s bookkeeping is also a cost-saving alternative to hiring an in-person employee.

We Help Keep Your IOLTA Account Up to Date

The Steph’s Books team can help you stay prepared in case of an IOLTA account audit with our professional record-keeping of your financial records. We will ensure that your IOLTA account is compliant with legal and ethical requirements and that all transactions are properly recorded and the account is regularly reconciled.

Other benefits of partnering with us to manage your IOLTA account include:

  • Experience peace of mind: With our law firm bookkeeping services, you can be confident that your IOLTA account is being managed accurately. This includes tracking interest earned on the account and ensuring that all funds are properly allocated.
  • Save time: Keeping an IOLTA account up to date can consume valuable billing hours. When you outsource this responsibility to a reputable bookkeeping service provider, you free up time to focus on other important aspects of your legal practice.
  • Mitigate risk: We help you mitigate the risk of errors or omissions that can lead to compliance issues. With our team, you can reduce the risk of mistakes and ensure that your IOLTA account is expertly managed.

Benefits Of Our Law Firm Bookkeeping Services

Accurate financial records are essential for making informed business decisions. Our services can provide you with a clear picture of your finances that will enable your firm to make the best decisions possible related to budgeting, spending and investments.


Bookkeeping services can also help you manage your cash flow by providing insights into your revenue and expenses. This information will help you decide when to invoice clients, when to pay bills and how to allocate resources.


Clients may rely on you as their lawyer to hold their money in a trust. Trust accounting is layered with responsibilities, and it’s imperative that your firm keep precise records and follow legal regulations. At Steph’s Books, we can help you prevent any potential issues with your clients and with the bar. Our mission is to help protect your firm and ensure that the funds are appropriately managed.

We've been customers of Steph's bookkeeping for a couple years now. Steph and her team are always on top of it and Steph's experience and knowledge shows immensely when it comes to handling her business. We are very satisfied with this company and would recommend them for anyone looking for a competent bookkeeper who is responsive and genuinely hard working. As a business owner I expect a high level of professionalism that is expected from me and my own business. Steph's bookkeeping fits the bill!!

We just transitioned from a prior bookkeeper to Steph's Bookkeeping Service and found the experience very good. Stephanie cleaned up our 2023 books quickly and professionally, took over payroll and estimated tax submittals with ease. We look forward to working closely with Stephanie as we continue to grow.
We have been using Steph's Bookkeeping for 5+ years now. The monthly and quarterly reports are always on time and accurate. This makes easy work for the accountant to close out the year. As a small business owner, the service provided by Steph and her team is beyond helpful. It allows me to focus on the day-to-day operations knowing that the accounting is being managed by a professional. It's one less thing that I have to do at the end of the month. If you're a small business owner, then you understand the value of that time savings.Any questions I have had over the years are answered in a reasonable amount of time & in a professional manner. You will not regret hiring this company to help manage your books. This is money well spent in my opinion.

I run a small health care practice in a rural area of East Central Illinois for nearly 25 years. In the last 5 years, I’ve outsourced book-keeping— “leaving it to the professionals” instead of continuing to do work that I’m not good at (also another layer of work as both a physician and business owner). Steph’s has been the best solution yet! She was able to dive right in and eventually assigned my account to Melanie. I continue to do payroll and my local CPA continues to do the taxes.The ongoing book work was a hole that has been filled to my satisfaction. Steph’s team is professional, polite and prompt despite my occasional delays in communication.. I plan to be a long-term client and grateful for this service.
